NIKOS KOULIS ETERNAL ELEGANCE

2020-06-30

Graphic black and ethereal translucence, enamel and diamonds, Art Deco chic and a sense of timelessness – Nikos Koulis’ jewellery is a beautiful study in contrasts.

Among the Greek designer’s most striking pieces at Auverture are creations from his Oui collection, in which white diamonds and emeralds shine in glossy black enamel settings, as seen in this elegant Oui Emerald Bracelet and the Oui Diamond Necklace. And Nikos’ Universe Line spotlights diamonds set into clear enamel captured in 18k white gold, so the diamonds appear as if they’re magically suspended within the translucent material, as seen in these Universe Trillion White Diamond Earrings and the Universe Triple Diamond Ring Small.

Nikos Koulis’ Eternal Elegance Graphic black and ethereal translucence, enamel and diamonds, Art Deco chic and a sense of timelessness – Nikos Koulis’ jewellery is a beautiful study in contrasts. Among the Greek designer’s most striking pieces at Auverture are creations from his Oui collection, in which white diamonds and emeralds shine in glossy black enamel settings, as seen in this elegant Oui Emerald Bracelet and the Oui Diamond Necklace. And Nikos’ Universe Line spotlights diamonds set into clear enamel captured in 18k white gold, so the diamonds appear as if they’re magically suspended within the translucent material, as seen in these Universe Trillion White Diamond Earrings and the Universe Triple Diamond Ring Small.“[While] the black enamel pieces are my most recognisable…the clear enamel pieces are even more special to me because we have applied a patented technique, setting the diamonds within layers of enamel, creating a floating effect,” says Nikos.

Based in Athens, Nikos says that he’s drawn on his country’s heritage for inspiration in honing his aesthetic. “Enamel is a core element in Greek jewellery craftsmanship,” says Nikos. “The way I work with it is based on a traditional Greek technique of heating the enamel at a very high temperature, and making it very resistant.

 And while many of Nikos’ designs may be unapologetically high octane – these Oui Rhombus Earrings are sure to turn heads – the designer says his pieces are ultimately intended to please the person who wears them as much as make an impression. “Jewellery has no season, and it isn’t associated only with social life,” says Nikos. “A woman can wear her favourite ring, bangle, or bracelet every single day. Jewellery has symbolicand sentimental aspects, and this creates a bond with the wearer. It’s all about the feelings, moments, and joy from wearing something special, with authenticity and long-term value.” 

TAs to what is inspiring the designer now, Nikos says that he’s driven to “create beautiful things, as an antidote to the bitter times we live in.” And addressing the effects of the current “challenging reality” on his design process, he adds: “My aim is to spread beauty and long-lasting value. In a way, a more challenging reality leads me to challenge myself, to experiment and evolve.” Explore even more of Nikos’ beautifully timeless designs here, within our curated selection at Auverture.com.
