Harriet France is an inspirational figure in the UK jewellery industry as she shows there’s nothing wrong with having a female, or millennial, in charge!

While a large portion of the jewellery retail sector has been slow to promote women and place them in senior roles, when Jeremy France entered retirement last year he had no problems placing the baton in his daughter’s hands – and rightly so.

Harriet France is an asset to the trade. She’s passionate, knowledgeable, and willing to take risks.


Since taking over the day-to-day running of the business, she’s introduced new brands and invested in each and every member of the Winchester-based firm’s talented team.

With a degree in Business and Management, she’s successfully applied the knowledge she gained at university to her family business.

Under her leadership, Jeremy France Jewellers was named Independent Fine Jewellery Retailer of the Year at last year’s Professional Jeweller Awards, an accolade voted for by trade peers.

Winning with over a quarter of the votes, the business was honoured for its remarkable reputation not only in the industry, but in its local area as well.

Jeremy France Jewellers is a business brands and suppliers love to work with, knowing that products will strive inside the store.

Harriet France has achieved so much in her first year at the helm… we can’t wait to see what the future holds for the family firm!
