Our Story

Handmade Jewellery, Since 1988

Founded by Rebecca Smith and Anton Pruden.

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

Committed to design excellence in precious metals, Pruden and Smith was founded in 1988 by Anton Pruden and Rebecca Smith.

Our team has now grown to 13 people, who work from our Ditchling Workshop in Sussex, England and is located in an airy victorian basement below our Gallery.

We offer a full range of jewellery services, specialising in creating bespoke pieces and redesigning your old jewellery. All our jewellery is handmade by our expert team who work to produce Rebecca’s unique designs to exceptional quality, by using traditional silversmithing and craft techniques combined with new technology.

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 silver silversmithing and goldsmithing. Most notably, Dustan was commissioned to create a gold chalice from the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool in 1959.

Inspired by Dunstan, Anton went on to train as a silversmith in Gloucestershire – an area of England well known for its history of traditional craftsmanship, contemporary art and design.

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.

    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.
