Smith Jewellery is a family run jewellery workshop headed by Lucy Smith. Lucy has completed a 6-year apprenticeship in diamond mounting in London’s West End, and in Hatton Garden, London’s jewellery quarter. After a spell of a few years working for some of the high-end names in the jewellery industry, she has now begun producing her own jewellery. Now, her aim is simply to produce high quality jewellery using her own ideas. The manufacturing techniques of the jewellery trade have advanced increasingly in recent years, but she tries to combine new and old skills, and remain as creative as possible.
We run a small workshop away from the expense and trappings of London so we are able to offer handmade, and often one-off pieces of jewellery at a more reasonable price. Because we are a workshop selling directly to the public we have cut out the ‘workshop to shop charge’. In addition, because we still source our materials directly from source or via London based suppliers, we have not compromised on our quality or service.
The workshop offers clients a unique insight into how the production process takes place. We can help the client in choosing a design and guide them through to the best choice of precious metals, the right quality of diamonds and the best colour from the vast choice of gemstones available. We will also help the client to maximise on their budget to the full. Because we actually make the jewellery and do not just sell it, we know a designs pros and cons and can advise them from a practical point of view. We want our clients to be completely satisfied with their item of jewellery, we are producing it, and it is therefore our reputation on the line- so unequivocally yes, we want them to feel happy.
