Awarded through our grantee Kevin Baker, Thomas Lyte’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, our Royal Warrant recognises our company’s status as a direct supplier and restorer of gold and silverware to the Royal Household since 2010 and for our commitment to exceptional service and quality. Thomas Lyte design, make and restore silver and gold décor for Her Majesty the Queen’s military and private residences. We take enormous pride in the quality of our work. Everything that leaves our workshops must meet or exceed our company-wide expectations. Only with these underlying values and this level of dedication will Thomas Lyte retain our position as the best goldsmiths and silversmiths in the world.
Founded as an ethical luxury brand, we want our customers to invest in our pieces safe in the knowledge that as a company, we have done everything possible to create unique handcrafted silver and gold pieces while reducing our impact on the planet. We ethically and responsibly source raw materials and packaging; choose sustainable shipping options where possible; use renewable energy resources in our workshops; and reduce our waste by reusing and recycling packaging materials. Metals are naturally recyclable, and all by-products from our manufacturing processes are reused or repurposed. Thomas Lyte is a member of the Planet Mark sustainability certification program, a commitment to measure and cut carbon emissions consistently year-on-year to achieve the ultimate goal of net-zero.
We actively shape the future of the British silversmith and goldsmith industry. We do this by pioneering the latest technologies, preserving centuries of knowledge and traditional skills while investing in world-class manufacturing facilities right here in London. Through apprenticeships and further training opportunities, we wish to inspire the next generation of craftsmen and -women. Furthermore, we donate a percentage of our profits to the Thomas Lyte Foundation, a registered charity that inspires and supports emerging British artists, designers, and craftspeople. Most recently the charity sponsored and judged two categories at the annual Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards, a brilliant initiative that recognises the brightest talents in our industry.
A distinct English luxury brand, we are the world-renowned designers and makers of many of the world’s most prestigious silver and gold trophies, awards and medals.
