Who are we?

Since 1902

The beauty of the silversmith's craft

The first workshop was founded in 1902, in the city of Porto. Always a family business, focused on the creation of decorative pieces in sterling silver. Nowadays with three physical stores in the center of Porto, in addition to the decorative pieces that identify us, we also create our own collections of jewelry.
Alcino’s journey is distinguished by the transition from a purely industrial business to a business focused on the end customer. During the 1990s, the challenge was the conquest of new international markets. For this we are present in the largest fairs in the home and decoration sector and reinvent our offer. With the opening of Alcino stores, we have opened our catalog and today we develop and create internally collections of jewelry and house to differentiate ourselves from other market players, combining the creative process with production. What distinguishes Alcino is precisely the ability to transpose an idea or concept proposed by the customer into a final product that exceeds the expectations of those who designed it.
