A beautiful 18ct yellow gold triple-strand fluted bead necklace from the House of Lalaounis. Influenced by the hugely rich heritage of jewellery found in Greece, the House was founded in 1969 by llias Lalaounis. Pieces bearing his signature are known to display ancient forms that glow in polished yellow gold. The collar form of this necklace instantly brings to mind ancient figures bedecked in the intense Athenian sunshine. The three strands of richly fluted beads have been attached by two elegant slim gold bar sections, which ensure the piece sits perfectly against the neck. The classical elegance of this piece ensures that it transcends styles and periods, and is hugely wearable today. Attracting admiration world-wide, the global style icon, Jacqueline Kennedy, often wore Lalaounis pieces after her marriage to the Greek shipping magnate, Aristotle Onassis, in 1968. The couple spent much time in Greece, entertaining on Skorpios, which was a private island owned by Onassis in the Ionian Sea.
Demonstrating time honoured goldsmith techniques.
Lalaounis was a pioneering Greek designer and goldsmith who was inspired by his country's ancient history. He was an advocate of reviving age-old goldsmith techniques.
