“gem of a shop - Moira and Tom”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

If you want some fabulous exclusive jewellery Unique is the place to go. I've known Maria and Vangelis, the owners and designers, for many years and they've become very dear friends. Every year when we come to Elounda we go to their shop on the first day to see them and they've always got lots of beautiful handcrafted jewellery. I've bought lots of lovely things over the years and I cherish them all and hope to buy more when I go back to Elounda in September. Maria and Vangelis are a fantastic couple and their shop definitely is worth visiting.

“Amazing jewellery shop”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

If you are visiting Elounda please do go to this shop. The jewellery is amazing - all designed by the couple who run the shop, and made by them. There are some beautiful pieces - completely different. Maria will give a good old opinion on whether a piece suits you or how to wear it. I love it there - been three years running.

“Absolutely Fabulous!”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

I know Maria and Vangelis quite well...they are interesting, funny, and immensely talented.
Their jewellery IS unique and beautiful, and I have several pieces that have been bought for me as birthday and christmas gifts.

They also make some of the most amazing wall art which is displayed in their shop, which is light and airy. If you are particularly lucky, you may walk in as Vangelis is playing his guitar - the man is a talented musician and raconteur extraordinaire!

all the items have a quality and allure that it is hard to find elsewhere, and they do not 'mass produce' anything!

If you are in Elounda/Ag Nik, area, I would definitely recommend a visit!
