Julie and Martin Harris first opened their jewellery business in 1982. In the early days Martin had his workbench in the shop and Julie used to draw the designs and help with customers. Over the years the business expanded and the work benches were moved to a new workshop upstairs to make more room for retailing. Although much enlarged, Merlins is still based on the practical side of the jewellery trade with repairs carried out on the premises. We carry a large selection including:

Merlin was Julie and Martin's flat coated retriever when they first opened the shop. Merlin's favourite place was curled up near the heater by the front door. He was such a friendly dog that many people came in just to see him rather than look at the jewellery! When they were thinking about a name for the shop somebody suggested calling it Merlins as he was always the first one to greet people at the door. The idea became a reality and although he sadly died in 1990 his name and silhouette live on!
Martin was apprenticed to Phillip Murray in London's Hatton Garden. He gained further experience by working for several workshops in Hatton Garden and the West End, finally joining Asprey's in Bond Street before branching out on his own. Along with his wife, Julie, they opened their jewellery shop now known as Merlin's of Godalming at 4 Bridge Street in 1982 and have been trading there ever since. Martin still work's in the jewellery workshop, which is an integral part of the business, making and repairing jewellery.
