“Byzantine art has been a great inspiration for us over the years. This ring is inspired the architecture of the period. It’s quite a statement ring. It’s particularly comfortable for me as a middle finger ring: you have to try it on to see where you would like to wear it.”
– Demetra Lalaounis
Contemporary designs meet ancient inspiration in the rich yellow gold of Lalaounis. Founded by fourth-generation jeweler Ilias Lalaounis in the 1960s, the company revived ancient Greek goldsmithing techniques, creating modern jewelry inspired by the country's rich archeological heritage. Following in the footsteps of their father, today the four Lalaounis sisters – Aikaterini, Demetra, Maria and Ioanna – are transforming five generations of tradition into wearable jewelry for modern women. Worn by style icons from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor yesterday to Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron today, the company’s designs are also exhibited in the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum in Athens.
Seriously, this ring is drop-dead-gorgeous. With the diamonds and texture and dramatic scale it really makes a regal statement.
