I've found that Joseph's full name was Joseph Robbins(Robins) Dillon and he was born roughly 1758, annoyingly still no date of death

Joseph Robbins Dillon, doesn't say he's a jeweller but the year fits.

There is another Joseph R Dillon in 1874, a relative perhaps

Name matches the jeweller and the date matches the burial records. Joseph Dillon in St. Patrick's was buried 14 Oct 1814, So it could be him. It is a shame it doesn't give any more detail though, even the word jeweller would have pretty much confirmed it.
