We are passionate about bold design in precious metals and specialise in custom commissions for both private clients and leading organisations, boasting unmatched credentials in the world of sport and international elite sporting trophies.
Silversmithing and goldsmithing have a rich and robust history that stretches back to around 600 BC. Its history is truly global. Our home, London, has a long and distinguished heritage as the global center of learning for design and craft in precious metals. Thomas Lyte disrupt and rejuvenate this industry by pioneering the use of modern technology and innovative methods during our handcrafting process. To achieve excellence is a company-wide commitment. Our hard-earned reputation depends on it.
We have been privileged to work with royalty and governments, and some of the most esteemed companies, sporting institutions, societies and clubs. As a company dedicated to handcrafted gold and silverware, we are responsible for some of the world’s most iconic trophies including the Emirates FA Cup, the Rugby World Cup, the ATP Finals Trophies, and golf’s Ryder Cup. We are proud of the relationships we have forged with some of the largest and most prestigious partners across professional sport. We strongly recommend exploring our case studies and gallery of work.
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. With the support of our fellow Royal Warrant Holders, we actively pursue an ethical and sustainable approach that allows us to reduce our impact on the planet. Furthermore, we donate a percentage of our profits to the Thomas Lyte Foundation, our registered charity that inspires and supports skill-sharing among emerging British artists, designers, and craftspeople.
Thomas Lyte would not be where it is today, as a Royal Warrant Holder and a world-renowned luxury brand, without the dedication of its talented staff. We rely upon a growing team of creative personalities who never back down from a challenge in this fast-paced industry. As part of our commitment to preserving traditional skills, Thomas Lyte offer apprenticeships in crafting positions at our workshops. Ensuring that our team’s knowledge and experience is passed along to the next generation of silversmiths and goldsmiths.
