Origins of Elegance: A Family Legacy in Rhodes
Our illustrious journey in the world of exquisite Byzantine jewelry began with the establishment of our first family store back in the 1960s. Nestled in the heart of the ancient city of Rhodes on the idyllic island of Rhodes, Greece, our family, originally hailing from the seafaring haven of Symi, embarked on a remarkable odyssey.
A Fusion of Timeless Traditions and Contemporary Craftsmanship
At the outset, we dabbled in the trade of antique artifacts and precious jewelry, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the rich tapestry of history, culture, and craftsmanship that our beautiful region had to offer. However, our passion for the captivating essence of ancient Greek, Byzantine, and modern Greek traditions spurred the younger generation, namely Fotis and Anastasia, to channel their creative energies into something extraordinary.
Journeying Through Greek Art and Civilization
This passion ignited a spark, leading us on a path of creating jewelry that not only honors these venerable traditions but also weaves their timeless symbols and concepts into contemporary forms and innovative materials. Our designs serve as a bridge between the past and the present, blending the old-world charm with a modern sensibility.
