My family story
my name is Petros Tezapsidis a greek jewellery designer, a fourth-generation jewel craftsman, carrying almost a century family tradition.
My love for designing and creating was born when I first saw my grandfather using his tools with so much care transforming a hard piece of metal into a beautiful piece of art.
There were so much to learn though, so I started studying Gemology at HRD in Antwerp, specialized in grading diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies.
In combination with some correspondence courses at GIA, I ended up being a trained gemologist which actually is like having an international passport that takes you anywhere gems and jewellery shine.
Wanted constantly to learn new techniques, I put my self into the world of micro-sculpture in wax, a brand new place for me where all of my ideas can become unique jewels.
From high-end jewellery, using top-quality diamonds mounted on K18 Gold, to contemporary jewellery using all gems mounted on Sterling Silver.
Everything is possible when I get into my studio.
For some collectors gemstones are very important and everyone is familiar with the big five.
Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and Pearl.
There are three key qualities to look out for in a gemstone, beauty-rarity-durability.If a gemstone possesses these three it is automatically precious in my point of view.
Buying Jewellery is one of life's pleasures, but people often think you have to be wealthy in order to collect it.
This is certainly not the case - you can spend as little or as much as you like, depending on your budget - but there are three main things to keep in mind.Jewellery should be appreciated for its originality, its craftmanship and its wearability.
Wearing jewellery is a form of self expression and should make you feel good, so choose a jewel that reflects your personality and whatever style you prefer, always buy te best you can afford, do not be scared to mix styles - antique pieces can be worn with modern ones - just ensure that the quality of craftmanship is consistent.
Jewellery comes to life when it is worn, and if it looks fantastic so will you!
I looked for rings for months and this was the one that stood out. I'm soooo happy with it. The engraving was beautiful. He was awesome to work with. Helped me out and costume made it the way I wanted. Super helpful, answered the 20 ?'s I had for him. Thank you so much again.
Gorgeous wedding band. Exceeded my expectations!
The thing I notice first is the design. Stunning. I love the number 3, so that also appealed to me. A ring that has this kind of simple yet elegant style is timeless, seems like something out of the medieval days-yet it is completely inkeeping with today. I am proud to say I wear this ring every day and I plan to keep it for a lifetime. Thank you so much Petros for all your talent and big heart.
