Increasing numbers of jewelry designers and watch manufacturers have recognized that they can score points with customers using extravagant design and the establishment of a brand name. In this context, both concepts go hand in hand, as no label will assert itself without good design. Beyond the mainstream, the inhorgenta 2007 will see numerous exhibitors with an interesting selection of discerning designer goods.

The idea is to create jewelry using high-tech materials such as stainless steel, Indian rubber and ceramics, drawing on state of the art CNC machines in connection with traditional craftsmanship TeNo calls this process emotionalized technology. The watches and the items of jewelry are characterized by clear forms such as squares, circles or rectangles and geometrically arranged elements. TeNo has always placed great importance on establishing a collection with a largely unisex appeal. The same language of forms is found in the purist and also in the diamond-encrusted jewelry and watches. In this way, TeNo appeals to men and women in equal measure.
The material stainless steel is always the basis for the models. The use of gold elements and diamonds means that the jewelry is also given a certain whisper of glamour. Indian rubber, ceramics, wood, mother of pearl and pearls are also included.
A typical feature of TeNo is the “three square design”, which has risen to become a trademark. An additional element that has become intrinsically linked with TeNo is the lead collection ShiKou. Consisting of bracelets, cufflinks and pendants, stainless steel elements are interspersed with nestling Indian rubber.
Continual development of the products and the TeNo marketing activities have transformed the leading stainless steel jewelry and watch manufacturer into a strong, globally renowned design brand.
