Greek designer Konstantina Pantelous founded Hermina Athens in 2012, naming the jewellery label after her daughter and in tribute to Olympian deity and herald, Hermes. Inspired by Greece’s rich history, Pantelous combines mythological motifs and talismanic symbols from ancient civilisations with organic materials – including freshwater pearls, turquoise and obsidian – to create an offering of meaningful personal relics to treasure and pass down. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings are made by local silversmiths in the label’s Athens-based workshop, each considered a tribute to the ease of island life and the beauty of imperfection.
