Lovely gallery with unbelievably beautiful hand-made jewelry. The owner was very friendly and explained us about the jewelry. Nice place to buy unique jewelry or photo for your loved one.

Beautiful hand-crafted jewellery and art in a quaint little gallery tucked away down a set of steps in the centre of Oia. Pieces to suit any budget, and friendly owners. Definitely worth dropping in if, like us, you serendipitously notice it as you are passing (I'd seen reviews on TA beforehand, so I was looking out for it). I bought... More

This is unlike all of the other many places in Oia to get jewelry. The earrings I got look like magical water.... unbelievable. The owners are wonderful and even helped us with a special order. They were so on top of the delivery and always communicating the status to us. Fantastic place, with very trustworthy owners. Love love love!

I popped in here by chance & was glad I did. The jewellery pieces were very unique & beautiful. We met Alexandra who was very friendly & chatty. They are currently expanding on their current displays.

However, Oia was crowded with tourists that day with more than 1cruise ship in the harbor.... More

Having read the reviews and the Mnemossyne being the number 1 attraction in Oia I had expected more, there were other galleries which I thought had a much better selection of interesting pieces.
