Our Mission

Deliver Excellence in Goldsmithing to Support Those Who Depend on Us, With Mutual Gratitude Among Those Who Make it Happen

This is our mission!  This is our Motto! We are here to contribute to your success by offering the highest quality workmanship in fine jewelry.  We also recognize the crucial value of each of our employees in fulfilling our function to the highest standard possible.

The History of Teneff

Teneff Jewelry began in 1944 as a small trade shop providing quality guaranteed service to local jewelry stores. In the beginning there were two men at the benches, one of whom was Steve Teneff, the owner of the company.  Steve worked on the bench doing repair work and special order manufacturing until the increase in the volume of business required full-time management. Through the years his wife, June, did wax work and casting, and served as business manager and secretary to the business.

From the beginning high quality workmanship and good service were emphasized, and these continue to be our hallmark to the present. As we have grown to a full service wholesale trade shop providing services to stores around the country, we have held to our founding principles. We believe in supplying the independent retail jeweler with top quality service and expert workmanship to help them position themselves far above the chain stores and mass merchandisers.

Located in the heart of downtown Spokane on the 2nd floor of the Paulsen Center, Teneff Jewelry is accessible, yet hidden away from the busy traffic and exposure to the public. Our premises are well secured and all contents fully insured.  Every piece of jewelry we receive is handled with the care and attention to detail that your customers’ jewelry deserves.
