About Tom Rucker
Tom Rucker is a master goldsmith who uses sophisticated technologies in conjunction with superlative goldsmithing skills to create unique pieces of jewellery and objets d’art. He works mainly in platinum and diamonds and is recognised globally as one of the most influential platinum jewellery designers working today.
Munich-born Tom is the fourth generation of a well-established goldsmithing family. He has been based in London since 2004, where he is a Freeman of the City of London, a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and winner of the Jacques Cartier Memorial Award 2020 amongst many other accolades.
Each piece Tom produces is a one-off, entirely made by hand with no computerised processes involved.
His intricate work is so fine that each piece has to be predominantly constructed using a microscope. Many of his works contain more than 10,000 single laser spot welds, some containing up to two million.
Platinum is central to Tom’s work. Recently his experimentation with producing colour in platinum has paid off. The process is, needless to say, top secret but what he can divulge is that he is now able to ‘manipulate’ the appearance of this famously white metal and create vivid colours.
