Designer of Silver and Gold Jewelry

Renowned jewelry designer John Atencio began his extraordinary career in 1968. His success led him to open his first store in Ft. Collins, Colorado in 1976, selling one-of-a-kind silver and gold creations. More than 30 years later, with two DeBeers Diamonds of Distinction awards, 7 retail boutiques, and a wholesale division that sells to more than 200 accounts worldwide, John still designs each piece. Working with a team of talented goldsmiths, each design bears the trademark stamp that signifies the quality and craftsmanship that is distinctive of John Atencio.

In 1995, John introduced his uniquely identifiable and highly collectible Elements Collection, which offers timeless elegance for customers of all ages. The combination of sterling silver and 18K gold with vibrant gemstones and a trilogy of symbols represents the lines of communication, the golden circle of family and friends, and the triangles of the connecting relationships that harmonize our lives.

As an experienced and skillful designer, John Atencio marries crisp sterling silver and bold 18-karat yellow gold into unique pieces that are inspired by the shapes around us. His creations imitate, in form, function, and symbolism, the subtle geometry found in nature. The circular shapes signify the continuous golden circle of family and friends. Triangular shapes represent the connecting relationships that harmonize our lives and the etched lines signify the lines of human communication that have existed since the beginning of time.

Mr. Atencio launched his jewelry designs in 1976 when he opened his first store in Fort Collins, Colorado, after having studied business and art at Colorado State University. His designs were immediately successful due to their unique combination of bold, geometric shapes, precious metals, distinctive and inspired design, and superb craftsmanship.

Colorado-based John Atencio has built a successful brand, yet remains true to his personal artistic vision. Showcasing vibrant specialty-cut gemstones, John's rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets have evolved into internationally recognizable works of art.

His simplistic approach to fluid designs allow John's fashion-minded customers to interchange and mingle his pieces, creating a look of timeless elegance. The John Atencio collections attract loyal customers who are dedicated to his innovation and craftsmanship. Each year marks the creation of several exceptional additions to John's already extensive and award winning collection.
