Jewelry by Aris

Aris is a jewelry designer from Athens, Greece. He moved to NYC a few years ago. He founded Jewelry Designs By Aris in 2014, but his jewelry career didn’t start there. He first began learning the trade and working in the jewelry industry in Athens circa 1992. After he started his own jewelry business at 2001 in Athens, he expanded his business to wholesale production and built strong relationships with hundreds of customers from all over Greece. In the span of 15 years, his collections have been sold in many more stores throughout Greece, Europe, and the United States.

Aris jewelry is made of quality and durable materials. His favorite metal is brass. Brass is a fully hypo-allergenic alloy used for decoration since antiquity. For the creation of jewelry Aris often uses fire bonding, preferring the silver bonding because of the lovely matte finish.  Aris also hand blasts each piece before plating his jewelry.

Gold plated jewelry is plated with 24-carat gold. As for crystals, our direct co-operation with the Swarovski factory guarantees crystals of exceptional quality and competitive prices for the final product.
