The Fanourakis company was founded in 1860 in Heraklion, Crete. For the past thirty years, Lina Fanourakis has been designing the collection. Lina oversees the production process to its finest detail and works with a small and very specialized team of goldsmiths in her workshop in Athens. Lina designs jewelry that transcends the logic of vanity and speaks to the heart. Using high karat gold, diamonds, pearls, and precious gemstones, Lina demonstrates her un-matched technical ability. Fanourakis pieces are gaining recognition as original pieces of art. Awakening our capacity to dream with an organic elegance and sophistication that is distinct in the fine jewelry industry. Her sculptural designs embrace a sense of whimsy and humor. For Lina, “a real jewelry piece is the one that makes you dream, the one that conveys joie de vivre”.
