About Us

England with the Pruden and Smith Logo where the gallery is located in Ditchling

Nestled in the heart of South Downs, Sussex, England

Our gallery and workshops are located in the charming village of Ditchling – voted one of the greatest in the country. Since 1988, we have welcomed visitors to explore our gallery and workshop, offering an intimate glimpse into our world of luxury jewellery design and craftsmanship.

Rebecca Smith draws much of her inspiration from the natural world...

Be it the unprocessed, raw beauty of gemstones, the organic contours of the Sussex landscape, or the gradual, natural erosion witnessed along the chalky cliffs of the Seven Sisters on the Sussex shore, our designs are deeply inspired by nature. Led by our designer and co-founder Rebecca Smith, a world-renowned luxury jewellery designer, you will discover unique creations crafted by some of the top goldsmiths in the UK. Expect rugged textures, distinctive patterns, and beautiful curves.

Founders Rebecca Smith and Anton Pruden seamlessly transitioned into jewellery making, gaining a notable reputation. Today, Head Goldsmith Simon Alexander collaborates with Rebecca, our Creative Director, to bring her artistic designs to life. This powerful partnership allows us to create truly unique handmade luxury jewellery.
