Horst Stichnoth passed on his craftsmanship and love for jewelry to his sons Jörg and Dirk Stichnoth, both of whom started their apprenticeship as goldsmiths in 1980 and 1983. The foundation for the continuation of the business in the second generation was laid.


After completing their apprenticeship and their studies at the Zeichenakademie Hanau, Dirk and Jörg entered the family run business 1979 and 1983. The second store of the Goldschmiede Stichnoth was opened at Georgstraße 52 in Hannover.In the following years, additional stores were opened in Berlin, Frankfurt, Bremen, and Hamburg.


In 2010, Florian Stichnoth, son of Dirk Stichnoth, began his apprenticeship as a goldsmith in the family business, thus laying the foundation for the third generation.


Another milestone followed in 2021 when Malte Stichnoth, also a son of Dirk Stichnoth, joined the company. A year later, his brother Florian followed suit.

Over the years, the company has continuously evolved and grown. The family's joy for jewelry and work, as well as their strong ambition, drive them forward.
