Byzantine Jewelry 

Byzantine jewelry is a corner-stone period in the art history of jewelry, yet little is known about it in the modern world and it is comparatively undiscovered my art historians. The Greek jewelry shop collection of Byzantine crosses and Byzantium jewelry in general is extremely rare and one of the only surviving collections of its kind. The survival of this incredible collection of Byzantine jewels is due to the heritage of the founders - the Vaphiadis family who originated from Byzantium (Asia-Minor) and fled to Greece in the 1920's for safety from the Turkish ethnic cleansing of Greeks. The art of Byzantium was abundantly handed down to us and even though this type of jewelry is very particular and has an untrained audience, it is usually appreciated by avid jewelry lovers for its unique un-compromising detail and disciplined character.
