Complex, soft and enduring, much like feelings. The new jewels created by Nikos Koulis take inspiration from sailor’s knots, celebrating the value of bonds between people

Yellow and white gold necklace with diamonds
Extolling the virtues of feelings via the precious sensuality of two materials - diamonds and gold, connected via the sinuous links of the snake chain. Feelings, the new collection created by Nikos Koulis, takes inspiration from a symbol as abstract as it is functional: the knot. The designer has vivid memories of the sailor’s knots found on the boats in the ports of small Greek islands, and he has used his expertise and desire for experimentation to come up with a series of jewels that evolve over time. These pieces are both soft and rigid, having found an aesthetic, conceptual compromise.
