NEW YORK - Jean Prounis founded her eponymous jewelry collection in homage to her ancestry. Her great-grandfather was the co-proprietor of the Versailles, a nightclub in the 1940's Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC. Inspired by the resplendent finery of the time, her hand-wrought jewelry is created from recycled 22K gold and responsibly sourced precious and semi-precious gems.
Legacy in Every Piece: The Timeless Craftsmanship of Prounis Jewelry
Prounis Jewelry, established by Jean Prounis in New York in 2017, embodies a rich family heritage and a deep admiration for historical narratives. The brand reflects the designer's aspiration to extend the Prounis family legacy with designs inspired by her Greek ancestry and her great-grandparents' New York nightclub, the Versailles. This connection is more than historical; it's a through line of the familial and cultural narrative, reflected in the visual and material language of the jewelry.
The Versailles nightclub, co-owned by Otto Prounis in the 1940s, was located opposite the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. The club was a hub for the fashionable elite. The famous night spot was renowned for its distinctive ambiance, marked by custom silver, sage green silks, embroidered linens and hand-gouache menus. This old New York elegance and attention to detail resonate in the Prounis jewelry line, offering pieces that carry a story of glamorous yesteryears.
Prounis Jewelry: A Blend of Heritage and Craft
Prounis is very selective about the materials chosen for her eponymous collection. Her jewelry is a testament to her craftsmanship, where every design is a piece of history that's destined to become an heirloom. Below are some of the elements that define Prounis jewelry:
