The Pruden and Smith gallery and workshop, on Ditchling Crossroads, showcases contemporary jewellery in gold, platinum and silver, incorporating diamonds and unusual gemstones from all over the world. This year’s Christmas collection features hand cut Ruby Zoisite and Tigers Eye displayed alongside old favourites like rough diamond and lapis lazuli. Pruden and Smith are jewellery designers and makers whose passion for contemporary design shows in everything they do. Over the last 30 years their complete precious metal design-to-make service, from engagement rings to chalices, has delighted customers worldwide.
As well as their well-stocked gallery of work they also redesign your existing jewellery in a process called ‘A Precious Legacy’. Designer Rebecca Smith takes inspiration and materials from your jewellery collection to generate designs for new pieces. It ensures that your jewellery is enjoyed and worn whilst maintaining the sentimental connection to past pieces. To book an hours free consultation, please follow the booking link below and select the ‘design’ option in the drop down box.
You can also take a tour of their workshops then follow it with a visit to Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft, which features the work and tools of Anton Pruden’s grandfather Dunstan, silversmith with the Guild of St Joseph and St. Dominic. Workshop tours are available at the weekends only and are bookable via our website (see the ‘appointment info’ section below).
Open every day until Christmas Eve
