AVRA Artifacts launched its first global collection Nostalgia on June 10th, 2021. It’s Greek-Canadian co-founders: George and Victoria Theodore, Adrianna and Alex Letros, launched their jewelry company with the goal of paying homage to their Greek heritage.
While designing their first line, the Nostalgia Collection, the brother-sister teams drew inspiration from Ancient Greek heirlooms that have been passed down to them; they then created nuanced versions with a modernized twist. They believe that one of the most beautiful things about a piece of jewelry is the story it can tell, and the memories it evokes. The line was foremost created with this in mind - hence the name Nostalgia.
Each design from The Nostalgia Collection draws upon the rich history of Ancient Greece and the founders of AVRA hope to recreate the experience of receiving a treasured family heirloom which has been passed down. Much like an Ancient Artifact, these pieces are in the most literal sense, a treasure. Their aim is for you to “Discover your Artifact”, allowing you to use your jewelry as an object of self expression and a meaningful symbol of your lineage.
