The Village Goldsmith Celebrates Twenty-First Anniversary
Wow! Can you believe that is has been 22 years since we (Jim and Betty Johnson) chose to share our dream in this Gem Of The Hills Community with you?
We opened The Village Goldsmith on June 14, 1994 at 630 W. Hwy 50, Clermont, and have been in the same location, with the same phone number
(352-394-4429), and the same dedication to quality workmanship, partnered with customer service. In short, we are the longest standing jewelry
store in the South Lake County.
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 demographics. Watch for them. We have no interest in becoming a big box store wannabe, so you may be assured that
our personalized way of conducting business will never change. Our custom design will always keep pace with the latest styles inspired by you, the true
imaginative designer. Your desire for one-of-a-kind pieces will continue to be respected with no duplication for any other customers.
Our customer relations expert is daughter Torri. She strives to enhance your experience with us by inserting her unique perspective of design and repair adjustments.
Always ready with a welcoming smile. Torri can change your watch batteries, recommend a gift for a loved one, or counsel your desire for a custom designed piece.
In addition, it is Torri’s voice you hear letting you know that your special item is ready for pick-up. Betty has the responsibility of restringing your beads and pearls.
Better to maintain the silken threads than lose what may be an heirloom strand of precious memories.
The Village Goldsmith offers custom design, intricate repair, and ready to wear items, clock and watch repair, battery replacement, pearl and bead maintenance.
Jim has even been known to repair trumpets and eyeglasses. Jose Carpio, who is a very faithful and experienced goldsmith, has been with us for ten years.
Together we make a great team. We try to do it all for you.
We have been rewarded for our integrity and dedication to the Clermont community with outstanding ratings from the South Lake Chamber of Commerce,
Better Business Bureau of Central Florida as an “Accredited Business”, and the unwavering support of you, the folks who have become our family,
friends, neighbors and partners.
Our commitment to you and yours has never wavered. We have always been and will continue to be Clermont’s jewelry repair and design shop of
choice, The Village Goldsmith.
We thank you again for keeping your business at home in South Lake County and helping us make our jewelry store your jewelry store, for
yet another amazing year.

Traditional Birthstone for September is the "Sapphire"
The color blue holds an endless fascination, from the high dome of the sky to the oceans that
cover two-thirds of the globes surface, blue literally surrounds us. When seen from space, the
earth is revealed as a shimmering blue planet. Its little wonder then that the breathtaking blue
of Sapphire has captured mans imagination from the beginning. Ranging from the deepest
midnight to brilliant cornflower blue. Sapphires have long been prized for their intense
The ancients believed that Blue Sapphire (holding in its depths the power of sea & sky) had influence
over the spirit world. Also among its reputed powers was the ability to make peace between
warring parties. The calming influence of blue has also made it an enduring symbol for loyalty
and trust, one reason that women around the world choose Sapphire for their engagement rings.
Sapphire (in all its rainbow of colors) is the gem given to those born in September and to those
born under the sign of Aquarius. Those who celebrate their 5th, 7th, 10th, and 45th wedding
anniversary find the brilliant blue color of Sapphire makes the perfect gift to represent faith
and steadfast commitment of their relationship.
Many people believe that the darker the color the more valuable the gem. In many
instances, this is not the case. Sapphire is one such example where the best and most
valuable color is a mid-toned hue. In the case of Blue Sapphire it is the
vibrant "cornflower" color that is most prized.
Several countries produce gem quality Sapphires including the United States, Asia, Australia and East Africa.
Our Blue Sapphire is mined primarily in East Africa.
