FootnoteThe Greek jewellery house of Zolotas was founded in 1895 by Efthimios Zolotas, at Aiolou Street, in Athens, a family run business that has continued through the decades of the 20th century, opening a new showroom in Paris in the 1970s and still maintaining its family tradition today.
The 1950s and 60s saw inspiration drawn directly from the Greek cultural heritage, reviving mythological themes from Ancient Greece. Customers in the early 60s included included Aristotle Onassis, the Kennedys, Elizabeth Taylor and Maria Callas.
