Meet Our


Whether you need luxury jewellery repaired, a family heirloom restored or a new purchase resized, your piece will be worked on at our Winchester workshop by one of our three fantastically talented goldsmiths.

Read on to find out a little more about them.


The son of Jeremy France, Chris inherited his father’s passion for repair work having seen his father at the bench from a young age. Chris studied Jewellery and Goldsmithing at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), and spent his summers practising his craft at the Winchester workshop. After university, he completed his apprenticeship here, and has been with us full time since 2010. Chris is adept at repairing jewellery and dealing with intricate claws, combining traditional methods and expert use of our laser welder to bring the best results to our clients. You can read more about Chris in our history section.


Sam has been a goldsmith with us since the start of 2017, moving away for a year during the pandemic before returning to our on-site workshop in 2022. Sam has over 16 years’ experience, starting her journey with a 4 year diploma in Johannesburg, South Africa. Sam is highly skilled at a wide verity of jobs, but her greatest pleasure comes from repairing and restoring loved pieces. Her other great passion in life is her animals. The proud owner of several rescued horses, cats, Guinea pigs and other small creatures, her animals keeps her very busy when she’s not at the bench.

Goldsmith 3

Our other, shyer goldsmith (who asked to remain unnamed and un-photographed) has been with the company for over 25 years. An absolute perfectionist and an incredible hand maker, we didn’t want to leave them out of introductions. Joining us after getting their degree and working in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter, they have been an integral part of Jeremy France Jewellers for nearly as long as we have been in Winchester! Their handmade rings are a delight to behold and they are a true testament to their craft.
