About our Atelier TI SENTO – Milano

We are Goldsmiths, goldsmiths with a deviated taste: we don’t love gold. It is silver that makes our hearts tick. Silver! Its raw radiance that makes us want to draft and craft. No, it is certainly not what is expected of goldsmith, but yes, we do it regardless. As crafting silver is what we do best. TI SENTO was born when the centuries turned. Our smiths were the first to bring gold standard to silver jewellery, the first to give silver the love and quality it deserved. Together we stopped listening to judgements and flew out of our jewellery pigeonholes. Today, we still love to get our hands dirty to make yours shine. Contradictions are our inspiration. Off the beaten track is our way to go. Sometimes we love, sometimes we fight; we do whatever feels right. We add a hint of suspense to sophisticated styles. TI SENTO has fans in more than 37 countries worldwide with a strong offline and online presence.

Furthermore we are expanding in the US and building our momentum in China and the rest of Asia Pacific.
