BEHIND THE DESIGN: GALLERIA ARMADORO FOR AROUND THE WORLD
Q: How has your home country and native culture influenced your designs?
A: Greece is a sun kissed country all year long. So, dressing up is a daily ritual for Greek women and wearing jewelry is essential. Let us not forget that the Greeks were manufacturing jewelry since 2.500 BC. So we are making jewelry that any chic woman would wear. The use of religious elements such as crosses is also essential in our collections. And let’s not forget the greek evil eye which we try to update every year.
Q: What do you love most about Greece?
A: The sun, the amazing weather, the island, the smile and the happiness of Greek people.
Q: How would you describe Greece’s signature style?
A: Laid back but at the same time bold.
Q: How would you describe your design aesthetic?
A: Fashion forward.
Q: Do your pieces feature unique materials or design processes?
A: We make high end silver jewelry, so we try to use the best materials—We only use star quality cubic zirconia stones and the best craftsmanship. So even if our jewelry is vermeil, it has the allure of an expensive diamond piece.
