IrisGold story began in 1973 in Thessaloniki, as a small family jewellery studio. Our collections were presented in every corner of Greece and quickly gained the trust of people thanks to their innovative design.
IrisGold is founded by Christos Papaziakas in Thessaloniki as a family atelier, making high quality handmade gold jewellery.
The small family atelier is now a proper jewel factory and IrisGold products can be found in every corner of Greece, providing jewel shops with exceptional creations.
The year that is set to become the landmark of IrisGold recent history, as Christos Papaziakas decides to relocate his company's production unit from Thessaloniki to the beautiful island of Thassos, looking for a better quality of life for his family.
IrisGold changes course and decides to distribute its jewellery directly to the consumer, creating a showroom into the factory's main building.
The factory and showroom of IrisGold has now become one of the main tourist attractrions of the island, with more than 30.000 visitors every year.
IrisGold expands with the very first branch in the heart of the capital of Thassos. "IrisGold Limenas Branch" showcases a selected collection of IrisGold finest silver and gold jewellery.
Georgios Papaziakas, son of the founder Christos Papaziakas, continues the legacy of his father by taking over the management of IrisGold and creates JewelStories, the first official online retailer of IrisGold jewellery and other famous brands.
