MARIA’S was established in 1978 in Pafos, Cyprus.
Although Maria has always been planning to open a shop a few years earlier the Turkish invasion in 1974 delayed her dream.
However in 1978 she finally managed to accomplish her dream and since then she tried very hard to build up a respectable name within her small town in the field of jewellery.
In 1998 her son Panayiotis has joined the family business after his studies in Diamond Grading, Gemology and Jewellery Design in GIA (Gemological Institute of America) the world’s foremost authority in Gemology.
Today experience, new ideas, knowledge and professionalism help MARIA’S to create very beautiful and unique jewels.
“There is one thing that I am proud of my parents. The fact that they started from nothing and managed to be successful in their life by being honest.”
Panayiotis Tsanakas, G.G.
