Robert Smit jewellery designer goldsmith artist jewellery

Robert Smit (Delft, the Netherlands, 1941) occupies a special place in the Dutch post-war jewellery scene. He didn’t submit to the tendency of using non-precious materials such as aluminium or perspex; he remained loyal to gold. Therefore his work overlaps more with eg. Italian or German designers. He also makes painting and drawings; these techniques are again used in his jewellery.
