About us

The Ringsmiths host sell-out jewellery making workshops in Central London. Launched in January 2019 by close friends and award winning jewellers, Milena Kovanovic and Ros Millar. 

The pair currently run six different jewellery workshops in precious metals, showcasing traditional goldsmithing techniques. Each class is designed to be accessible to beginners and those with no previous jewellery making experience. Since their launch the workshops have become incredibly popular and we are now looking to expand our team of in-house jewellers and teachers.
