Apart from the obvious draw of the extraordinary jewelry itself, there is an added incentive to explore the wonder of Greek jewelry. Greek Jewels’ designers participating in LUXURY and JCK offer all retailers who place orders during the show a discount up to 15% on total orders placed at the show and confirmed within 15 business days. This generous discount applies to orders over $5000 at LUXURY and $2000 at JCK.

Among the rich pool of talent exhibiting at LUXURY and JCK, three outstanding designers to watch for are Dimitrios Exclusive, Orofasma and Frangos Jewelry.

Showcasing at LUXURY, Dimitrios Exclusive offers an extraordinary collection of jewelry inspired by the rich tradition of Greek and Byzantine art. Founded in 1990, Dimitrios Kapsaskis had the aim of creating jewelry inspired by the rich tradition of Greek and Byzantine art. In 2008, Vasilis, the son of Dimitrios Kapsaskis, drew upon the inspirations of his father and further enhanced their collections by creating extraordinary jewelry collections made of precious and semi-precious stones set in 22K gold. The company’s design philosophy is included in its motto: Giving Timeless Beauty A Modern Twist. Dimitrios Exclusive won JCK’s Jewelers Choice Award Best Bracelet Design in 2019. Dimitrios Exclusive can be found at jewelry retailers in Europe and in the United States.

Also, in the spotlight at LUXURY is Orofasma, a fine jewelry company established in Athens by Kevork Kolanian. Known internationally for his design talent, Kolanian was awarded “Design Talent of the Year” in 2013 in Basel for his innovative ‘Orofasma Setting:’ a unique setting allowing the central diamond of each piece of jewelry to safely and arrestingly turn around its axis. Launching at LUXURY will be the brand new “Eternal Love Diamond” collection of 18k gold and diamond rings featuring this unique setting.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
