About

Color Latino jewelry started business in 2006.

When I first arrived in Greece, friends and relatives loved the Latin American jewelry that I was wearing. I decided to start a jewelry store and so, in 2006, Color Latino was born. At first I sold jewelry on the beautiful Greek islands, Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu and Hydra. In 2009 we started to create my own handmade range using materials from Latin America. People especially love the chunky and colorful 'Tagua', a rock hard material that comes from Palm trees in the heart of the Amazonian jungle. I also use freshwater-pearls, sterling silver, alpaca, brass and a unique, gold toned metal from Latin America, called '' tumbaga'' to create adjustable pieces.

Now, Color Latino sells globally from our quaint little shop next to the Ancient Theater in Larissa where I create unique hand-crafted pieces. I love the creative process involved in each piece of jewelry, from the initial design stage until the final piece, adopting artistic details that harmonize color and shape in a human-centered design. The vivid and exotic Latin American design has certainly been influenced by the timeless grace of Ancient Greece and the result is something modern, unique and a certain wardrobe essential.

Enjoy browsing through my store.

    I'm Colombian and have always wanted to have my own business. With the support of my husband and family I started my jewelry business in Greece in 2006. Designing has been a satisfactory challenge using different materials from Latin America

Production partners

  • Bossley

    Medellín, Colombia

    Colombian artisans that combine colorful leather jewelry with mola art ( brightly colored cotton cloth originally made by Kuna indians). However both leather and mola fabric are made by Bossley owners.

  • Plataforma Joyeria: Mexican company with more than 15 years of experience that designs and produces handmade jewelry with high standards of ecological and social ethics at a fair price.

    Taxco, Mexico

    I chose plataforma to be our partner because it is an honest and responsible company to: the consumer, the employee and the environment. Plataforma has very strong skills working with metals and their quality is excellent.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Please be careful when handling tagua nut jewelry. It is made from a natural material and carved by hand.Avoid getting your item wet and spreading fragrances.
Silver jewelry: you may polish it gently with a polishing cloth. To clean away excessive tarnish, use a silver polishing dip cleaner.
Brass and alpaca jewelry: these two metals are alloys that will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen, however they can be easily cleaned:
Place some metal cream polisher on the metal part of the jewel and polish it with a cloth.
Tagua nut beads and brass wire designs might damage when exposed very often to water. Hence it is better to avoid wearing these jewels when washing your hands or when taking a shower.
