Jewelry by Greek emerging designer Anastazio Kostopoulos is distinctive in its design with an architectural feel; bold pieces merging modern and classical, simplicity with details, blended with inspiration from his Greek culture heritage, folklore and symbols made with the feminine woman in mind.
Anastazio Kostopoulos’ passion for jewellery was born in the company of his brother, Agis Kostopoulos, a noted gem-setter in Greece. When he turned 19, he began studying the art of stonesetting and jewellery-making under the tutelage of his brother. The two worked together for many years and honed their skills under the watchful eyes
of the best Greek goldsmiths, diligently dedicating their time and working long hours every day.
Designer’s Vision, an Ode to Femininity
Anastazio had a vision for his jewelry; that it be wearable, handmade and an ode to femininity. Each design is replete with intricate details, yet remains stylishly simple – statement pieces with great attention to detail. His collection includes: Meander rings, Tears of Love pendant, Fish of Gold earrings – each one a reflection of his approachable and creative persona. Drawing upon geometry, textures and inspirations from Greek folklore, Anastazio’s jewellery is steeped in craft tradition and influenced by his heritage. Anastazio loves gold jewellery and this love led him to design the “Nude Love” heart pendent, “Fish of Gold” earrings, “Contrast” earrings and “Cosmos” pendent, among others in his collection.
It was his desire in crafting the direction of his career to carve a niche for himself in the world of jewellery in his native country. The designer made eight key pieces and presented them to the jewellers in Santorini; his efforts garnered him attention. He designs in order to make the wearer feel beautiful, to bring people together and inspire compliments. The power of a compliment, believes Anastazio, can make people feel more beautiful and confident than any other material possession. Each piece is accompanied by a certificate of Jewellery Identification.
