Rhythm and movement, rare techiques,, 925 sterlnig silver, silver and gold 18 carats. Rough diamonds, vibrant artistic sensivity. These are the materials she uses to express with simplicity her jewellery designs. The uniqueness in their construction and design constitute a new proposition that transcends greek jewellery. “Sweet or sour story, long or short, old or new, every woman can tell a story and the best way to tell it is through a jewel. A narrative with style, rhythm and grace. Constructed in gold or silver. Decorated with precius or semi precious stones but always unique and especialy designed for you.

The last 40 years Eleftheriou Jewelry Collections maintain a strong presence in the field of handmade jewelry. Kostas Eleftheriou, founder and creator, with the inspiration of the Greek art of the Byzantine period, won a place in the long history of Greek jewelry. With a page dedicated to his outstanding work in the special edition, “The Greek Jewels: 5000 Years of Tradition” published by the Ministry of Culture, and with customers like Abba, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Princess Soraya and Omar Sharif, the Eleftheriou collections acquired an international reputation quite early.
His daughter Maria Eleftheriou, graduate of Mokume and prize-winner in many jewelry design competitions, showed an early passion for the handmade jewelry. Following her father’s path for the last decade, working with unparalleled attention to detail and constant awareness of contemporary design, Maria has managed to place Eleftheriou collection in the demanding and rapidly variable, global market.
With constant references in Elle Magazine and Vogue Magazine, Eleftheriou Jewelry Collections have gained a loyal and growing clientele both in Greece and abroad. Following the tradition of using high quality materials and design, always focused on femininity, the collections are characterized by dynamic, clean and timeless forms.
Stella Deligianni was born in Thessaloniki. She studied economics at the University of Thessaloniki, but, soon, her creative aspirations drew her into the world of jewellery. In 1984, the duo «Pleiades» was formed and, at the same time, a place under the same name was created at the centre of Thessaloniki, where she began experimenting with the materials and techniques used in the «art of jewellery». Constant research of new materials and techniques, approached in a highly personal way, led very quickly to the creation of a distinct personal style.
In 1989, she attended the Mocume school of jewellery. From 1990 to 1995, she taught in a private school of jewellery. In 2000, after the duo «Pleiades» closed its circle, she set off on a new personal journey. Always faithful to handmade jewellery, she never stopped developing her own techniques and forms. Her creations can be found at selected stores around Greece and abroad.
