Gem of the Hills community with you. We opened The Village Goldsmith June 14, 1994 at 630 W. Hwy 50 in Clermont, and have
been in the same location, with the same phone number (352.394.4429), with the same owners, and the same dedication to
quality workmanship partnered with customer service.
While the consistency you have come to trust has been our watchword, we are looking
ahead to making small upgrades to keep pace with South Lake County’s ever changing population growth
and financial community; watch for them. We have no interest or intention of becoming a box-store
wannabe, so you may be assured that our personalized way of conducting business will never change.

April is Diamond Month
Quality jewelry remains the best value in the long run. Today's jewelry marketplace is greatly change from a decade ago. Department stores, discount outlets
and promotional jewelry chains have flooded the market with low quality goods at unrealistic discounts. The credibility of the traditional "Mom & Pop" jewelry
store survives through everyday fair prices, good services (many on the premises), and quality jewelry.
Today's consumers are quickly becoming educated to the "scam" of the overpriced, but heavily discounted, 14k chains, diamonds and all the rest.
Most of these jewelry items can be purchased at a savings from small businesses using traditional fair pricing, where no discount is needed. When purchasing jewelry, consider
the percentage of the price that is going for location, promotion and advertising.
Service is the reason so many second time buyers become life-long customers of the independent jeweler. Jewelry occasionally needs service or adjustment.
When an experienced and informed jeweler is conveniently located, the informed customer will eventually seek us out. Service will always be the means by which an
independent jeweler makes, and keeps a good customer. A jeweler that depends on repeat customers will choose to sell quality jewelry.
This means jewelry that is constructed well using quality methods and materials.
This consistently good quality assures the customer of lasting value with their purchase. Fair prices, good services and quality jewelry, should always
be the goal of the smart shopper AND the independent jeweler.
This weeks Q & A: How often should I have my Jewelry inspected?
