Emmet Smith

Emmet has worked in the jewellery trade since 1986 and after studying at the Sir John Cass School of Art in Whitechapel, undertaking a 5 year apprenticeship with R.H. Wilkins - the company he went on to buy.

Rebus was founded by Emmet Smith in 2005 as a department within R. H. Wilkins, the renowned engravers to Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, The Wimbledon Championships, based in London’s Hatton Garden. The word ‘Rebus’ means a device that uses pictures and symbols to represent a word or phrase, so it seemed a natural choice for the signet ring brand.
