Located in the center of Athens, at the most visited pedestrian’s street of the old city, “ADONIS” is a shopping destination for premium jewelry & luxury watches.
Our original primary objective is the design and production of authentic museum replicas of countless exhibits as well as the design of unique jewelry, all inspired by the ancient Greek history and mythology. All our jewelry products are handcrafted inhouse, thanks to the expertise of our craftsmen.
MUSEUM COPY OR MODERN DESIGN
The passion for our work has proven to be a success. Throughout the years, ADONIS has evolved into a high-end jewelry shop, housing both traditional historical designs as well as modern jewelry collections. All our creations are entirely handmade with the greatest attention to detail and selection of gems.
