About Tiina Smith
Tiina Smith, based in Boston and New York, is a curator and collector of exceptional fine jewelry. Through her industry connections and relationships with the top auctioneers, the finest jewelry houses and private sources worldwide, she can locate and acquire that one perfect piece or fill out a lifetime’s collection of exquisite jewelry. Always looking for the rare and unique, she chooses each piece for its beauty, craftsmanship and design.
Tiina’s love of jewelry grew from her own early collecting experience. With a background in finance and strategic consulting, she has merged her passion for exquisite jewels with her business acumen to assemble a well-considered collection of exceptional jewelry for discerning buyers. In moving from the world of finance to fine jewelry, Tiina brings with her a rigorous transparency, attention to detail and a solid understanding of value as the bottom line.
Tiina, who honed her competitive nature early as an elite tennis player, is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Business School and has received her Applied Jewelry Professional degree from the Gemological Institute of America.
Launched in December 2018, Tiina Smith Contemporary is a collection of everyday fine jewelry, featuring makers destined for stardom but still broadly undiscovered, as well as prominent sought-after brands. Tiina has selected pieces that represent the best of each, including custom designs of her own – perfect for layering, wearing and giving. From daily staples to statement-making stunners, these are the pieces you’ll reach for time and again.
