    Zolotas: Founded in 1895, the Greek firm Zolotas is recognized for its meticulous reproductions of ancient and Byzantine jewelry as well as its own designs. In the 1960s, Zolotas’s richly textured 18k yellow gold designs brought to life fantastic lions, snakes and rams taken from sculptures, embroidery and architectural patterns of ancient times. The style was purely Greek. This grand display of the love of country and Hellenic culture attracted International recognition as celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, and Grace Kelly along with the social and political elite, including the Kennedys, and shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis sought Zolotas creations. The ever-evolving company began crafting spectacular jewels in 22k gold as of the 1970s. Their contemporary designs, in both 18k and 22k gold, showcase interesting textures and finishes in combination with colorful gem accents. The company continues to preserve the sense of history that has been the cornerstone of the Zolotas business with boutiques, both in Greece and abroad.
