In the first two bracelets of the german action “YuKon – show us Your creation” you can see amongst other things beautiful elemts in yellow- and roségold.

Every golden accentuation at TeNo – whether it’s in the collection YuKoN, TeNo de luxx, in the rings for couples or in one of the many other jewelry pieces – is made of high-quality gold with 18 carat.

If a dental impression stays on the coin it’s the proof that it’s a real gold coin.
