My first Konstantino piece was a simple, yet beautiful link bracelet with engravings on every link. I had just turned eighteen, and scraped together all my birthday money, some savings, and a large portion of my paycheck just to purchase the bracelet (give me a break, I was eighteen). It remains to this day, one of the most loved pieces in my wardrobe. Dior jeans and Margiela shirts come and go, but a Konstantino Treasures bracelet will stick with you through thick and thin.
Konstantino Treasures is a company steeped in cultural history and renowned for their quality craftsmanship. Greek and Byzantine cultures provide the inspiration for Konstantino, who utilizes ancient greek etching and engraving techniques to craft pieces that are nothing short of breathtaking.
“Greece, for me, is a land of magnificent contrasts. Blinding light and forbidding darkness. Crashing seas and arid farmland. Frenetic cosmopolitan cities amid ancient ruins and lost temples.
As a boy, my playground was the architecture of the Acropolis, the Temple of Delphi. My village, Melitea, belonged to the warrior Achilles of Troy. Knowing this... that this famous warrior from Greek history had actually lived in MY birthplace had a lifelong effect on me.
All these ancient elements are etched in my soul... so every piece I design possesses my essence, my experiences, and my passion for Greece.”
