Jim Johnson, as The Village Goldsmith, has dedicated a quarter of a century, and over a third of his lifetime, to the dream of providing South Lake County with the very best one-of-a-kind jewelry and goldsmith establishment.
Twenty-five years ago, on June 14, 1994, The Village Goldsmith opened its door to the folks of Clermont. Under the same oak tree, Jim and his dedicated crew continue to keep the faith with respect, courtesy, honesty and precise workmanship due each and every client. As only three on-site master goldsmiths can do, their work remains flawless. With Monica as their guiding hand, Jim, Jose and Matt will never disappoint regardless of the intrinsic value of the client’s treasure or budget.
As remounts and modifications continue to challenge, it is repair, watch battery replacement, bead and pearl restringing that have been their stock-in-trade these many years. In addition, while The Village Goldsmith continues to lead the local market by catering to those individual custom pieces, it has also kept pace with unique retail items and will continue to do so.
For all their efforts and ethics, The Village Goldsmith was, for a third time, honored by the voting folks of South Lake County and South Lake Chamber of Commerce, with The Best Jewelry Store of South Lake County Award. It remains the unwavering support of the people who have become family, friends, neighbors and partners that are their greatest reward. “Thank you, Clermont, for keeping your business at home and making our shop your jewelry shop of choice,” Jim, Jose, Matt, Monica and Betty.
The Village Goldsmith is located at 630 W. Hwy 50, Clermont, 352.394.4429.
