Greece-Inspired Jewels to Celebrate My Vacation

Ileana Makri Glimmering Sun earrings

Naxos, Greece. June 20, 2019. Greetings from Greece! I’m on the island of Naxos this week with friends, so Greek-inspired jewelry seems like a natural fit. While I’m seeing evil eye motifs and the color royal blue, synonymous with the stunning Agean Sea, at every turn, ruins and mythologic tales abound, which are often reinterpreted in fine jewelry. Here are five Greece-inspired jewels–right after some vaca shots–that fit right into my current surroundings.

All island photos are my own.

Not surprisingly, the flowers in Naxos are as stunning as the rest of the scenery.

  • I love cute motifs in jewelry because they keep pieces lighthearted and fun. @morganpatricialove has a good sense of humor in her creations. Loving the sweet little pineapples here, and the pearl bum pendants on the next screen. What maker with a sense of wit and whimsy do you like and why?

  • This beauty is from my favorite Brazilian brand, @hueb. I handled this aquamarine and diamond number at Couture and haven’t stopped thinking about it. I think it’s time to revisit it at their Manhattan showroom. What do you think?
