Michalis jewelry is handmade.   Inspired, designed, handcrafted.

A handmade  jewelry creation  is a synthesis of diverse arts. A drawing is created and contours are revealed little by little. Gold is sculpted, adjusted. Gems are set with precision.  All visible and invisible parts are perfected to the minute detail. The final touch of polish reveals  all the beauty of the new jewel.

At Michalis , exquisite designs are brought in life by the hands of aspiring jewelers . The creation of a piece of fine jewelry requires deliberation, research and long hours of manual work. For more than 55 years, at our workshops in Athens, master artisans with diverse skills, designers, model makers, goldsmiths, gemologists, gem-setters and polishers, work in perfect harmony to transform original sketches to exceptional jewels.

The Fine Art Of Creating Jewelry

Jewelry Design

Inspirations are turned into designs.

Designers  grasp an original idea and give it a shape on paper, layering  the foundation of the jewelry-making process that involves skilled craftsmanship at its highest level.


In Search of the Finest.

By focusing on the diamond’s natural beauty and brilliance, Michalis  diamond experts  individually hand select by eye  the world’s most beautiful diamonds from Antwerp. Our gemologists travel around the world, seek out and select natural colored stones.

Gemologists and designers work together.

Designers develop multiple sketches . Working alongside with gemologists, they finalize their options on the perfect design that will enhance the natural beauty of each natural gem.

The goldsmith’s art

Giving shape to precious metals.

Master jewelry  modelers and goldsmiths working in close collaboration bring the designer’s sketch to life. Discussing  shapes, curves and  volumes  under the guidance of the designers, they saw, bend, solder, drill, sand the nascent jewel. All visible and invisible parts are refined  assuring perfection to the minute detail.

Gem Setting

The artistry of setting  precious stones.

Gemstones must be set in position with surgical precision. Experienced setters sculpt and refine the metal around the adjustments, to house the stones perfectly.


The true Beauty of the New Jewel Emerges.

The refinement of polishing is performed several times during the creation of the nascent jewel . After setting  expert cleaning and polishing gives to the new jewel its expert luster and perfect finish.


No compromise is made when it comes to seeking perfection.

Each Michalis jewel is made with the most exacting craftsmanship using only the finest materials. With a technical expertise fully focused on excellence, we monitor and supervise the entire creation process of the new jewel on a daily basis.
