Yannis Sergakis is the descendant of a well-established family of Greek diamond traders. He was drawn into the alluring world of precious stones while still a child, when he spent hours observing his uncles in their showroom.
Soon, Yannis began collecting and trading jewels. Much later, he realized that his true passion was not collecting but creating jewellery. Not a conventional route, but one that indicates his deep love and appreciation for the fine art of jewellery.
After studying gemology and design at the Gemological Institute of America, Yannis Sergakis worked as a trader alongside his family until 2004, when he set up his own business.
More interested in creating exquisite jewels than signing them, he started collaborating with renowned jewellery houses in Greece and abroad. Over thirty collections later, with the maturity of a designer who has spent a decade honing his craft and the assertiveness of someone whose sought after pieces sell at the world’s most exclusive boutiques, Yannis Sergakis has taken the most important step yet – creating his own signature line.
