“Good morning, I just received my 3 items and I must say, absolutely gorgeous... Your quality is absolutely wonderful. Your packaging beautifully done. The ring is so comfortable, I just can't say enough.I have seen several websites selling jewelry made in Greece but have not really looked at their items.I will keep you on my list and hope we will be able to do more business in the future. Sincerely, Hanneke”
“My favorite ring ever is from here. I wear it as art. So unique. And exceptional customer service from these guys to ensure I was making the right choice.”
"Hello, Joanne , Received the Damaskos ring. Superb workmanship and design, as anticipated.I had hoped that Damaskos would not take the cheaper alternative of mounting artificially created sapphires which are grown as perfect, chemically pure, clear as glass crystals, and are then cut and faceted by computer controlled robots. I was not disappointed. I inspected the sapphires with my stereoscopic microscope and found each had the traditional flaws found in natural sapphires- inclusions, crystal fractures, even microscopic gas bubbles trapped when the sapphires were still in liquid state. Further, I observed the irregular facet cuts, a sign of hand polishing by artisans, not numerically controlled machines. Of course, none of these characteristics are visible to the naked eye, and the sapphires are a delight as mounted on the ring.
One sapphire has ha sufficiently deep red color, and is clear, that it could be classified as a ruby. Finally, the ring was a fascinating blending of a silver underlying band and gold above, a novel design which I have not seen before. Another surprise was the gold cartouche applied to the silver, with Damaskos’ name, and purity information. Really stands out against the silver, and worth showing off to fellow jewelry admirers.
Then there are the 24 tiny diamonds. All of excellent white color, not the I, J color grade found in medium priced engagement rings. I am impressed with the mounting of these tiny diamonds, probably using a 4 pronged miniature punch for each to deform the adjacent metal, while using a microscope? Even with a 5x jeweler’s loupe, Damaskos would have to have an incredibly steady hand and superb vision. Much more difficult than simply bending 4 prongs on a large 1 carat diamond ring."

“Love Athena’s Treasures!!! Love all the new pieces which makes it so hard to choose from. Always prompt reliable service. Can’t wait to wear my new doublet ring. Gerochristos is my all time favourite, always receive compliments for the pieces, they are beautiful. Keep up with the emails and FB alerts. Thank you Pete and Joanne xx”
“A week ago, [my wife] stumbled onto the Athena’s Treasures web site, and we both saw jewelry that blew our minds. Incredibly artistic, and superb quality. Simply the most attractive rings we have seen, except perhaps, in museums. Then all we needed was an excuse to buy something nice from you, and I thought it would be appropriate to re-affirm our marriage vows and, in the process, replace our simple and well worn rings for two very fine rings that we found on your web site.”

"When I was planning to marry, I did not have much money, and the small New England town I lived in had one jewelry store with a very limited selection of basic American style, unimaginative type 14K rings, so I purchased two rings. We are both originally from Europe, where 18K gold is standard, and for years I have been saddened that I was unable to provide higher quality and more attractive rings for us, as well as in 18K.
