It was early 1970s, when artist Constantinos Panagiotopoulos found his true calling in designing and hand-crafting brilliant jewelry. Many of the biggest Athens-based Jewelry Houses (Zolotas etc.) and the most famous Greek painters (G. Stathopoulos, Fasianos etc.), identified his profoundly gifted charisma creating only high-class “pieces of art” reflecting a timeless luxury even for the most demanding selected client’s needs.
As the years went by, his daughter, Eirini, grew up among thousands of precious stones, tons of flawless metals and immeasurable cultural knowledge, cultivating and nurturing unconsciously inside her a deep love for jewels.
Graduated in 2009 from University of Piraeus in Maritime Studies, fine jewellery designer Eirini Panagiotopoulou decided after many years to return to her forever burning passion and follow her “inherited” roots in Jewelry, starting up her eponymous brand “Ellina’s Treasures”. With the unquestionably vital assistance from her “artist” father and her “creative” mother, Eirini aims at offering high quality hand-crafted pieces at an affordable price.
Being truly enchanted by Greece and its beauty, the collections are inspired by Ancient Times and culture of Greece. The designs reflect a style of simplicity, ancient influences and modern aesthetics!!
“Ellina’s Treasures” House offers pieces that “mirror” the thrill for storytelling and avant-garde design, striving to crack modern luxury with a touch of raw sensuality. These understated pieces are designed to be both functional jewellery as well as art objects.
The “Ellina’s Treasures” collections confidently and elegantly express Eirini’s internal tension between voluptuousness, dreaminess and something stricter: “I try to be pure and clear,” the designer explains. “But I can’t help myself, I’m a meditator, I think of the Greek History, the magnificent Mythology and Dodekatheism and the epic poems, the tragedies…”
