Posh Totty Designs

Beautiful, personalised gold and silver jewellery designed by Alice Rivers-Cripps, and handmade by a small team of silversmiths in the Brighton workshop at Posh Totty Designs.

All pieces can be made to size and customised with personalisations, making each piece unique and special. Each piece is handstamped using a specially developed technique and completely UK made and designed. All pieces are unique and made to order.

Visitors to Brighton (and residents too, of course) can pop into one of Posh Totty Designs's two shops: its flagship store in Brighton's bustling North Laine, or in the summer months, its seasonal beach shop underneath the arches of the seafront promenade. .

Alice realised what she wanted to do after travelling across North and South America ending up in Mexico with only $60 in her pocket. She had no way of paying for her flight home so she worked for some local Mayan jewellers who taught her how to make traditional silver jewellery. Two years later when she had made and sold enough to pay for a flight home to England, Alice chose to continue to use the skills she was taught to develop her own personal style. Posh Totty Designs was born. She decided early on that she wanted to make meaningful keepsakes / jewellery that the wearer will cherish and love rather than fashion jewellery that is in one moment and out the next. She was one of the first jewellers to realise there was a market for Personalised jewellery.

Alice says "People really wanted something unique and British and there were lots of shops on the High Street trying to copy the handmade look but they were mostly importing it from China, whereas we were making it all in our Brighton workshops. Due to the fact we were hand making each piece anyway, it wasn't much more work to then personalise to the individual. After having children myself I then realised how special it was, as I wanted to wear my children's names on my wrist or around my neck as I was so proud of them."
