“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sending my silver bead bracelet so promptly.  It has arrived, and I’m delighted with it. Someone bought me the same bracelet from your shop in Ditchling six years ago.  I literally never took it off, so for six years it went through life on my wrist, until I lost it a week ago, and was very sad about it. I have looked everywhere without success, and decided I had to replace it.  It wasn’t the clasp that came undone, I imagine the link finally gave out.  I will look after this one carefully. I’m a really satisfied customer.  There is something about the bracelet that I just love. Thank you again for the excellent service, and easy to access website.” – Sue – Stroud, Gloucestershire, August 2021

I contacted the company for advice on the best way to clean them . It was suggested I return them to the shop for specialised cleaning by their machine . I have received them back today less than a week since I sent them . They are like new . The butterfly backs have also been replaced . I couldn’t be more delighted. There was even a cleaning cloth inside the package . All this completely free of charge ! Thank you so much Pruden and Smith for fabulous jewellery and amazing customer care !

“I worked with Rebecca on the design of a ring for my 50th birthday. I am British currently living in California and initially was a little uncertain about the feasibility of discussing the design over a Zoom call but Rebecca was great and made it really easy. She listened to what I wanted, made some great suggestions and gave me a short but helpful education in diamond selection. I have had my ring for a week and I absolutely love it. I have a very active lifestyle and the ring is robust enough to stand up to that whilst still looking delicate. The quality of the ring is outstanding as was the service from Rebecca and her team.” – Toni – California, USA, April 2021

“The experience and level of service is second to none. I had the pleasure of having 3 rings made and tailored to my specification. Rebecca is a lovely lady and listens very carefully as to what the customer wants and gives advice accordingly. Sebastian was too very helpful in producing an image from my poor hand drawn image! My own jewellery was then transformed into something that is now to be worn. Having owned several pieces of work prior to using the redesign service, I would recommend Pruden Smith anytime. Fantastic team to deal with and all so talented. Thankyou” – Lynn – Worthing, West Sussex, April 2021

“I recently had a bespoke ring made from multiple rings that I had inherited. The service, design and guidance was great from Rebecca and I absolutely love the finished product. The ring is exactly how I imagined it.” – Katja – Brighton, Sussex, March 2021

“Years ago I was at a Fair and saw someone wearing a fabulous watch on a wide silver bangle. Admiring it, I asked where she had found her watch. In Ditchling, she said, at the silversmiths called Pruden and Smith. Seeing it in their window I dropped rather unsubtle hints and 3 years later, my husband gave it to me. I love it. Since then, I have had old family jewellery made into more up to date items, using the value of some of the jewellery to make the new things. I love their designs. Unique and bit quirky. Rebecca listened and made wonderful suggestions. More recently my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and I was very lucky that he gave me a beautiful ring from Prudens. What a special place. Friendly, efficient, helpful and creative people. What a gem in Ditchling!” – Fiona – Ditchling, East Sussex, February 2021

It is simply breathtaking. The fit could not be more perfect. It’s familiar but more spectacular. I had worried that it might be kind of gaudy. But IT”S JUST FABULOUS!!!” – Topaz – London, December 2020

“I just wanted to email to say my sister was absolutely blown away by her ring and it really was such a joy to give a gift that I knew was considered and handmade by a very talented trustworthy team. It was more than I wanted to spend but well worth it after such a difficult year – you only live once. I shall be back! Thank you so much” – Bella – Ditchling, East Sussex, December 2020

“With Pruden and Smith I had the most amazing and positive experience ever!
My husband bought a beautiful Lapis necklace at the British museum. Unfortunately the Lapis “pins” stood straight up when I moved. Therefore I asked for an advice to Pruden and Smith. They mailed me that they could put a second “string” in the necklace, that would keep the pins flat in their appropriate place. AND they asked if it fitted well. I preferred to have the necklace a bit longer. I sent the necklace from the Netherlands to the UK, and within a week I think, I got the necklace back: exactly the right length, a double string so the pins keep their right place now! AND…..instead of an expected bill, I got beautiful Lapis earrings “because of the inconvenience”!!! I never had such a positive experience with a shop before!” – Liesbeth – The Netherlands, August 2020

“I had a custom ring made using the stones from my existing wedding ring. Rebecca helped us choose a style and a beautiful sapphire to be set in the ring. She suggested the best way to showcase my treasured stones. I couldn’t be more pleased with the final result, I still admire it every day six months on from taking delivery. Pruden & Smith have made several pieces for me using existing jewellery, each piece is beautiful. I never hesitate to recommend them to friends who ask where they should go for jewellery. The service is always top notch and professional.” – Sandra – Hove, Sussex, July 2020

Would recommend Pruden and Smith to absolutely anyone wanting beautiful hand made jewellery that is so unique and full of character – thank you so much to your wonderful team!” – Flo – Brighton, Sussex, June 2020

“My grandma left me her 22ct gold wedding ring in her will, the gold/ring had been in our family for several generations and her wish was for it to remain that way.
My partner wanted a platinum concave wedding band so I decided to have the gold I had been gifted melted down and recast, also in a concave band to match hers.
I contacted several jewellers and was told either it couldn’t be done or the price of my wedding band would be the same whether I used my grandmas gold or not even though the gold I supplied made up 3/4 of the final weight of the ring.
I then contacted Pruden and Smith who stated that this wouldn’t be a problem and quoted a very competitive price along with a quick turnaround for both rings.
The wedding bands were fantastic and the service from start to finish was excellent, I really cannot recommend them enough. Thank you!”- Adam
