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. Emmet has worked in the jewellery trade since 1986 and after studying at the Sir John Cass School of Art in Whitechapel, undertook a 5 year apprenticeship with R.H. Wilkins, the company he went on to buy. 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.
Emmet Smith, Founder of Rebus said, “With a hand-engraved message or symbol, an object can be transformed from the ordinary into the extraordinary, giving it a life and meaning of its own. And in time, the item will acquire its own personality. It will become a talisman – precious and cherished that can be handed down from generation to generation.”
