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.

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