Meet our Founders

Rebecca and Anton have combined their skills to create an iconic style that is recognised worldwide. They draw inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds them, incorporating elements of the earth and the ocean into their designs.

Rebecca and her designs

Rebecca Smith

Rebecca Smith trained as a fine artist at Farnham Art College and has been designing and making in precious metals and gemstones for the last 30 years.

There is a recognisable freedom of expression in her designs, which is reflected throughout our jewellery collections and in the bespoke designs for pieces commissioned by our customers.

Rebecca’s specialist redesign service offers you the opportunity to recreate your old jewellery into a new contemporary design – bringing a new lease of life to family heirlooms for years to come.

Anton Pruden at Pruden and Smith

Anton Pruden

Anton Pruden is a silversmith and goldsmith whose roots trace back to his grandfather, Dunstan Pruden – known internationally for his work in silversmithing and goldsmithing. Most notably, Dunstan was commissioned to create a 22ct gold chalice from the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool in 1959.

Inspired by Dunstan, Anton went on to train as a silversmith in Gloucestershire with his aunt, Dunstan’s daughter and Uncle, Angela and Philip Lowery.

He then founded Pruden and Smith with Rebecca, combining design and craftsmanship. Now semi-retired, he helps out where needed as we move into our next phase.


35 years of design excellence

Our journey from silversmith to fine jewellery has been truly unforgettable, filled with moments we will always cherish. Learn more about how Pruden and Smith has evolved over the years below.


Founding Year

Pruden and Smith Designer Jewellers Goldsmiths and Silversmiths founded by Anton Pruden and Rebecca Smith.



Throughout the 1990s, we caught the attention of the silversmithing trade making silverware from the Turner Dumbrell Workshops, Ditchling.


Jewellery Design

As we moved into the new millennium, our focus turned towards jewellery – as silversmiths, hammering is one of our primary skills and we carried this through into our jewellery designs.


Shows Around The World

As our iconic jewellery collections evolved, we started adding more unique designs – sharing them at shows around the world.


Ditchling Crossroads

We moved our Gallery and Workshop to the Ditchling crossroads, in the building that once housed St Dominic’s Press (of the Guild of St Joseph and Dominic).


First Website

We launched our first website, showcasing our jewellery designs.


Best Business Award
