ABOUT US

About

Marianna Goulandris is a London based designer of beautiful fine jewellery. Her Greek heritage is skilfully intertwined into each creation, all of which draw inspiration from her travels, exploratory nature and strong visual appreciation. All of her pieces are hand-made to order in Athens, a city with a long history of gold working and fine jewellery manufacture, renowned for it’s superior craftspeople and quality stone-setters.


Jewellery Care

Our jewellery is made to the highest standards but is delicate and requires care when wearing and handling. As with all jewellery,taking the right precautions and caring for your item correctly will prolong its life. To preserve its integrity and finish we recommend removal when showering, swimming and sleeping. It is best to avoid contact with perfumes, creams and lotions as metal reacts when exposed to some chemicals and could cause your jewellery to tarnish. Gently polish your items with a specialised jewellery cleaning cloth. Take care not to over polish gold vermeil items.

It is important you use a delivery address where you or somebody you trust can sign for it. All Marianna Goulandris jewellery is hand made to order.
