For a century, the French town of Saint-Amand-Montrond, in the central Cher department, was the capital of gold. As France's third-biggest centre for manufacturing gold jewellery after Paris and Lyon, the town of 10,000 inhabitants was best known for its hollow-link gold chains. Today, few goldsmiths remain but the local vocational school is busy training up the next generation of jewellers. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover it.
