Elena Kougianou Jewels is a jewellery brand that was created by Elena Kougianou in 2011. With love for vintage jewellery, colourful minerals, and unusual adornment designs, each collection pays homage to traditional craftsmanship with an eye to experimental design.
The characteristics of all collections are the metallic lace details, precious stone earrings, and double-fingered rings. All pieces are handmade in Athens, Greece by using a thousand years old techniques such as the lost wax technique, granulation, and filigree.
Elena draws inspiration from the geometry of the Art Deco era, the softness of Art Nouveau and the history of Ancient Greek designs.
The result is bold, contemporary and feminine pieces that blend gold, amethysts, chrysoprase, tourmalines and other beautiful stones together.
The brand quickly gained positive feedback, and pieces were featured in magazines such as Wallpaper, Vogue Gioiello, Madame Figaro and InStyle.
