Meet the Team at Sharp & Sons Jewellers
Mr. Robert Sharp
One of the “& Sons” from the shop’s name, Robert runs our family owned independent jewellers. He personally undertakes our customers’ jewellery and watch repairs in our workshop on the premises, as well as designing and making handmade pieces of luxurious jewellery for sale in our shop. He is on hand to guide our customers through the design process to remodel old pieces of jewellery, or to make something new and bespoke. As he makes the jewellery himself, our customers are able to gain invaluable advice at the discussion and design stages as Robert is able to explain exactly what is possible and the best way in which to achieve our customers’ vision. As a registered member of the NAG Robert carries out our valuations for both insurance purposes and probate.
Mrs. Shona Sharp
Shona is married to Robert and works in the shop on a part time basis. She has a background and qualifications in administration and finance and a gift for making customers feel welcome, and it is these skills and qualities which make her an invaluable part of Sharp & Sons.
A member of the team since 2003, Jan is a well known face in the shop whose bubbly and friendly nature is highly valued, with many customers popping in to ask after her and timing their visits so they know she will be on hand to offer help and advice. With watch repair skills from her previous managerial post in a high street jewellers, she’s happiest when undertaking the fiddly tasks of battery changing and bracelet alterations. She also has an eye for detail and is responsible for our beautiful window displays and the never-ending task of keeping them clean and shiny.
Marrisa is our newest member of staff. Joining us during the Coronavirus pandemic has not been easy but with her adaptable manner and friendly nature she has quickly settled into our small team. Having previously worked in retail for over 13 years before joining Sharp and Sons, Marrisa has brought with her a wealth of experience in good customer service. Her efficiency and organisation are perfect skills needed for maintaining our window displays and all the cleaning needed to keep the jewellery sparkling. Her hardworking attitude and ability to make the customers feel at ease in store make her a welcome addition to the team.
