Ancient Greece in Paris

Since the trend has shifted to ancient-style jewelry, what better than to buy it from the master-jeweler Zolotas, who has just opened a shop in Paris. He creates pieces in yellow gold that’s hammered, in filigree, or engraved and features figures coming from ancient mythology.
