Gold lovers please go visit this different museum. This jewelry designer has taken historical objects and form and made jewelry with a contemporary flair. He has designed for many people to include Jackie Onassis. The displays are breathtaking. The museum shop has some interesting things to buy.

My friend like to see jewels a lot. Since we cannot buy many pieces I take her to this museum. Lalaounis is one of the most famous Greek jewellers who along with his daughters design all the jewels and are inspired mostly for the greek mythology and history.Specimen of all the lines he manufactured are displayed there.

The master Ilias Lalaounis is quiet old now, but his creations will last forever. It is not only the jewelry that are fantastic, the museum is just in front of the Acropolis.
It does'nt matter if you don't buy anything from his shops just make a point when you are in the vicinity of the new museum of Acropolis to have a visit.
