Maria Apostolopoulou & Nikos Karakostas

Can jewelry design and sculpture merge into one? The answer is given in a convincing way through the fascinating pieces of jewelry created by Maria Apostolopoulou and Nikos Karakostas.

Maria, after many years of dedication, has mastered an unbelievable skill of hand engraving gemstones. She follows the legendary Faberge House’s tradition, where the gemstone becomes the canvas on which the painting is carved. Inspired by ancient myths and archetypal symbols the artist engraves the gemstone only by hand producing stunning intaglios.

Nikos elegantly handles the crafted stone. In his designs, a bold modern look walks alongside classic elements. Distinctive white topaz beautifully adorns the carved stone. Light plays a prominent role in the background, be it enamel, titanium or even mother of pearl. The result of their combined work is in fact a unique piece of jewelry just for you.
