Our History

Discover our roots.


Teneff Jewelry began in 1944 as a small trade shop providing quality, guaranteed service to local jewelry stores. When we first started, owner Steve Teneff managed the repair work and special order manufacturing, while his wife, June, handled the waxwork, casting, and business affairs.

As we have grown to a full-service wholesale trade shop providing services to retail stores around the country, we have remained true to our founding principles of high-quality workmanship and exceptional service.

We are recognized for supplying independent retail jewelers with first-class service and expert craftsmanship. This has enabled many of them to provide products and services superior to those offered by chain stores and mass merchandisers.

 We are excited to extend this same level of service and expertise to the public. After years of designing jewelry for retail stores, we now offer custom jewelry services to everyone. We proudly utilize responsibly sourced, 100% recycled precious metals and lab-grown diamonds and gems.
