A Gold Coast jewellery store employee has fought off a man who after first posing as a legitimate customer pulled out a hand gun and demanded she handover the stock.

The 50-year-old woman managed to beat the man away with a metal object before he fled the shop on the Gold Coast Highway at Palm Beach in a silver hatchback.

Police say the man initially walked into the shop and looked at a number of pieces of jewellery before pulling out the weapon and demanding the goods be handed over.
