The generous spirit of the Mediterranean Sea

Crete holds a dominant position in the neo-Hellenic jewellery history, mainly because this beautiful island is where the island creations of the neo-Hellenic period originate from. From the 18th century onwards, Cretan jewellery pieces began adopting traditional adornments featuring in the rest of neo-Hellenic designs. At the time, Cretan silversmithing was flourishing producing high-quality creations. typical example is the “cross with botonia”, an integral part of the Cretan costume, which symbolised man’s faith, as well as his need for protection against evil.
