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, shes happiest when undertaking the fiddly tasks of battery changing and bracelet alterations. She also has an eye for detail and is jointly responsible with Sarah for our beautiful window displays and the never-ending task of keeping them clean and shiny.
Like Jan, Sarah worked in a high street jewellers before joining Sharps and brought with her the skills and knowledge she acquired in this managerial position. A dedicated and highly efficient member of the team, Sarah has exquisite taste and this comes to the fore when helping Robert select jewellery for the shop and assisting customers with their purchases. She can change watch batteries and alter bracelets with ease and is responsible for restringing our customers' pearls. Her attention to detail and design vision is central to Sharp's beautiful window displays.
Lisette came to Sharps with a background in PR and copy writing and is responsible for the content of our website. She can usually be found on the shop floor behind the computer, working on our website or researching our antique pieces.
