Hermina Athens was founded in 2011 by Konstantina Pantelous. The name Hermina is inspired from her daughter's name, but this also derives from the female equivalent of 'Hermes', the Ancient Greek God. Ever since she was a child she was enticed and absorbed by jewellery. She began designing jewellery based on individual pieces she would wear herself. These ideas were then taken to a workshop in Athens and came to life. She now works with experienced silversmiths and artisans in Athens. Konstantina creates jewellery with the idea that every piece is timeless and can be passed down through generations. Her designs illustrate her passion for history and culture, taking inspiration from Antiquity and Greek mythology.
