    Ilias Lalaounis: Ilias Lalaounis got his start in Athens, Greece in 1940 working for his family's business, the Zolotas firm. He formed his own name-bearing company designing heavy 18k and 22k gold chains. In the 1950s, Lalaounis revived ancient Greek jewelry, creating gem set jewels with an Etruscan flair. His primary themes included nature, science, mosaics, astronomy and medicine. It truly is his sense of artistry combined with the richness of gold for which Lalaounis is known best. LaLaounis is the most well recognized Greek jewelry designer. Outside of the Greek Islands, the company and museum expanded to New York, Paris, Geneva, Zurich, Tokyo, Hong Kong and London under the guidance of his daughters. Ilias Lalaounis passed away December 30, 2013 at the age of 93.
