Byzantino Jewelry first established business in 1987. The
two owners, Kostas and Giorgos decided it
was time to show the world their expertise and talent, but
mostly their love for these ancient pieces of jewellery
they have been admiring in books and museums. This love
for ancient Hellenic civilization and especially the way
it was represented by jewels, pushed them to start creating
reproductions of ancient Hellenic jewels. This way,
they discovered the talent and passion of ancient masters
created admirable objects of art unsurpassed until
Along with their experience and inspirations from various
sources, in their belief that Jewels are not simply to
be possessed by their admirers' but to also be worn and
enjoyed, Kosta and George started to create new pieces by
adapting to the demands of fashion but always crafted using
the traditional techniques and showing the same respect
and passion for there art.
Since 1987 "BYZANTINO" Jewelry has been located in Plaka on 120 Adrianou Street.
Plaka is the Old neighborhood in Athens just under the Parthenon.
Although inspired by Ancient works there passion for the art of Jewelry could not be l
imited to one type only and for this reason in 1995 a new showroom was established,
next to the first shop, under the name of "OLYMPICO".
It is perfectly organized to present modern contemporary pieces
according to international fashion and style.
The next thought was
to create a space where both jewellery from the past as
well as modern pieces could be presented at the same time. Something
like a modern and ancient art museum where everybody can
see the timeless progress of jewellery.
This thought became a reality in 2002.
The proper space was located and after a complete reconstruction
had been made, they began to operated with great success.
The second "Byzantino" is located in the old market, moments away from the first shop and
on the corner of Pandrossou str. 30 & Eolou str. where Kosta and George and all the staff await
your visit so that you may be guided pleasantly into the past, present and the future of Jewellery.
