Thomas Lyte holds a Royal Warrant as Goldsmith and Silversmith to Her Majesty the Queen. We are also proud to be ecclesiastical silversmiths and goldsmiths, creating bespoke ecclesiastical silverware and gold commissions for the church and important religious occasions.
As an audacious rising star, we are proud of how quickly we’ve established ourselves as a world-renowned company of expert craftsmen, with custom-built workshops that enable us to design and create beautiful bespoke pieces from scratch.
Read on to discover how we can deliver your bespoke ecclesiastical gold or silver commission.
We are entrusted with magnificent royal and ecclesiastical heirlooms, most recently the Platinum Jubilee Processional Cross that was unveiled at the Jubilee Service at St. Paul’s Cathedral in June. We are English to the core, but when it comes to customer service, we lose our British sense of cool and moderation and delight in being positively excessive. Our goal is to take your design, doodle or even a vague dream in your imagination and make it happen. There is nothing you can’t ask of us and almost nothing we would not do for you, whether it be creating a processional cross or a ciborium, chalice, alms dish, or candlestick.
We never fail because rather than entrusting what we do to anyone else, we’ve built our own state-of-the-art workshops in London, now among the largest and most sophisticated silversmithing and goldsmithing facilities in Europe. We have sourced the latest technology and Britain’s most talented, creative craftsmen, while breathing life back into time-honoured traditional artisan skills by nurturing our apprentices. We oversee every tiny detail and involve our customer at each stage of the process. That’s why today we are being entrusted with magnificent royal heirlooms and the world’s most important sporting trophies alongside our superb one-off ecclesiastical silverware. We can design and create to order bespoke ecclesiastical or church silverware and have it delivered in pristine condition on time anywhere in the world.
Our in-house design team comprises among the brightest minds in the industry, well-equipped to design from scratch or to translate existing artwork into exactly the bespoke gold or silver commission to suit your church or religious celebration or ceremony. Churches and ecclesiastical representatives sometimes bring their own ideas and drawings or wish us to work with their chosen artists or design agencies. As ecclesiastical and church silversmiths and goldsmiths we are entirely flexible and will work exactly the way you wish us to.
