Magnifiers

Hilkinson 'Rupers' have represented the gold standard in handheld magnifiers for over 50 years. A wide range of folding magnifiers is available to suit every need, from inspecting jewellery and electronics to watermarks and the identification of precious stones. Some feature two or more magnification levels within the same unit for unparalleled convenience. Why ruper? The endearing folklore tale is that Hilkinson's range of magnifiers were supposed to be 'Super Magnifiers' but the amusing typographical error has stuck as long as they've been assembled in the original factory. Should you require any advice when deciding upon a magnifier, please contact us or call on +44 (0)1225 466364.

    Why Ruper? The story goes that when first manufactured for Hilkinson in Japan in the mid-fifties they were to be called Super Magnifiers. An unfortunate typo changed this to Ruper Magnifier. Over 50 years later, the Hilkinson models are still made in the same factory and they are still known as Rupers.
