Internationally renowned designer, Emmet Smith, meets one-on-one with clients, creating couture hand-crafted signet rings, which express individuality and appreciation of tradition.

Rich in tradition, and matchless in luxury, Rebus is the preeminent atelier for one-of-a-kind signet rings and hand-engraved jewelry design. Headquartered in Hatton Garden, where drafting and craftsmanship are pillars of quality construction, every piece is forged by master goldsmiths.

Known for solid, timeless signet rings carved in reverse, each can be used as a wax seal—an elegant touch to a handwritten letter. Whether a self-purchase gift to celebrate a landmark occasion, the anticipated surprise for a loved one, or one’s signature touch on dapper style—the signet is as distinct as its wearer. Equivalently, the rendezvous to compose one is a marked journey—a dance between past and future self, where Rebus manifests the client’s style and vision. Formed in precious metal, substance and interpretation emerges… a tour de force of design, each ring wholly unique.

Emmet Smith says, “It is a great pleasure to meet customers in person to explore design ideas and work with them so we can create and achieve their style aspirations. We believe we share a refined design aesthetic with customers based in these urbane West Coast locations and I am very much
looking forward to collaborating and supporting customers old and new at these events.”

During West Coast appointments, clients will be able to peruse the full collection of Rebus ring styles in a private, elegant setting. With sophisticated heraldry and design books for reference, Emmet Smith, Rachel Constantine, and Nicole Maskrey will advise on custom design, partnering to actualize concepts ranging from family crests, coats of arms, meaningful symbolism, artful initials, and more. Clients will peruse shapes, gemstone options, metal types, and sizes. Customers with an interest in heritage and craftsmanship will be introduced to the die-stamp and hand-engraving process, beginning the blueprint towards their modern heirloom.

If you’re looking for a night filled with laughs and misbehavior, look no further! Dirty Rotten Scoundrels opened on Broadway in 2005 and received an astounding ten Tony nominations. A bright, catchy score accompanies the story of two con men, Lawrence and Freddy, competing for the same territory. In an attempt to decide who gets the lucrative and coveted Monte Carlo scene, they make a bet involving Christine Colgate, the wide-eyed “American Soap Queen.” The men decide to see who can be the first to get $50,000 from the naïve heiress – and the loser has to leave the country! The hijinks that ensue get wilder and funnier as they try to win over their target while ensuring they do everything to foil one another! (Recommended ages 16+)

Taproot Theatre Company presents

Babette’s Feast
Conceived and Developed by Abigail Killeen, Written by Rose Courtney
Adapted from the short story by Isak Dinesen

Playing on the Jewell Mainstage
March 18 – April 25

Crossing thousands of miles in search of asylum, Babette finds safety across the fjords in a tiny mountain village. But petty squabbles and personal slights render the pious villagers as frigid and unforgiving as their surroundings. In one radical act of generosity, Babette prepares a feast so lavish it awakens grace and transforms brittle hearts.

Playing Wednesdays/Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays/Saturdays at 8pm, and Saturday Matinees at 2pm.
