“A piece of jewelry carries a message, has a story to tell. It is jewelry with a soul”.
Ilias Lalaounis, a fourth generation jeweler, has become renowned for creating luxurious gold jewelry steeped in history. Each piece represents a synthesis of past and present, of ancient culture into a modern idiom, revealing influences as diverse as the Neolithic age, Mycenaean art, the Byzantine era, pre-Columbian architecture as well as science and nature.

  1. I’d love to own a piece from his jewellery collection! It looks stunning!

  2. Each new year they make a tiny gold pendant. My mother bought me one with Aquarius on it years ago. Lalaounis is interesting because the revival of ancient motifs and their house was brought about by tourist, apparently German, taste for souvenirs. And what followed was incredibly sumptuous and fine, as you can see.
