Our Story

Smith and Ralier Bespoke Jewellers in Chichester was established in 2004 by Rod Smith and his wife Danni.

The business has gone from strength to strength - Rod, the store's owner and goldsmith, explains why

"I have my workbench on the shop floor in full view of the customers, I think that people like the fact that jewellery is made and repaired on site and that they can talk to the jeweller directly".

Rod has over 30 years of experience and was trained by a Cartier jeweller which he feels gave him an excellent foundation in the trade.

"As the Cartier name is synonymous with incredible workmanship and quality I was taught to complete every job with the same level of care and precision as they do, be it a commission for a 2ct diamond ring or a repair to a silver chain, each piece is important to each customer.
I get a great sense of satisfaction and pride from what I do. A large part of that comes from the positive reactions we receive from our customers".

Many of the pieces in Smith and Ralier's windows were made by Rod and designed by his wife Danni who says,

"Having a background in art and design has come in very handy for some of our more unusual commissions,
it helps that I can visualise what the customer wants"

A pairing of both practical and creative personalities has been a large contributor to Smith and Ralier's continued success and goes some way to explaining their ever expanding numbers of loyal customers.

Why We Do What We Do?

It is simply because we are passionate about our business. Regardless of the enquiry, be it a simple repair or the most complex bespoke commission, every customer is valued and we strive to make every visit to Smith & Ralier enjoyable, seamless and memorable.

Hopefully in turn our customers are happy and will recommend us to their friends and family.
