Hermina Athens was founded in 2011 by Konstantina Pantelous. The name Hermina is inspired from her daughter’s name, but it also derives from the female equivalent of ‘Hermes’, the Ancient Greek God. Designing jewellery based on individual pieces she would wear herself, her ideas were then taken to a workshop in Athens where they came to life.
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. She loves experimenting with different textures and giving them a vintage impression by using “old fashioned” chains. Every piece in every collection is completely unique.
