Konstantino fled the music scene of Athens in search of an oasis, he took a weekend trip to the island of Hydra where he ended up living for the next 15 years. It was on this magical island that he fell in love with jewelry, collecting and curating collections of his own, whereby in 1988 the first Konstantino store opened. Hydra is not only the birthplace of Konstantino’s love for Jewelry but is also where Konstantino met his soon to be wife and creative partner, Annette. Together, from the ground up, Konstantino Jewelry soon established its presence in the United States and global market.
Konstantino and Annette’s children, Julian and Phaedra joined the team in 2016, further continuing the legacy of passion and risk for the craft of gold smithery and design. This new generation leads with knowledge, humility and a natural instinct for the dynamic of the Konstantino brand. Preserving the brand’s core philosophies and expanding on its already established style, is a challenge that’s been taken on with confidence.
By fusing age-old techniques with new approaches to the art form, the Konstantino style stands unique in its re-approach to these traditions, indisputably Grecian and nothing like you’ve seen before.
