Curiosity, Creativity, Expression

YSSO is derived from the word gold in Greek, chrysso, and is meant to be a blank canvas for you to create your own stories for whatever you imagine yourself to be.

 YSSO is a designer jewellery brand that celebrates the imperfect uniqueness of handcrafted design, created by mother and daughter, one based in Athens and the other in London.

YSSO pieces are daring and individually unique. All jewellery are exclusively created at workshops in Athens, Greece, using ancient Greek jewellery making techniques with recycled bronze, gold and sterling silver. 

 YSSO brings forgotten motifs of the past together with modern design that make them timeless and modern. The variety of designs within the collections evoke emotions that tell meaningful stories of myths, design and creation.

Alexia Karides, after working as a lawyer in London, founded YSSO in 2019 bringing decades of jewellery making and design of her mother, an archeologist. YSSO has an archive of design spanning three decades, which are recreated to contemporary collections. YSSO is rooted in four thematic collections, which are developed periodically throughout the year. The founder and her mother, both co-design jewellery to this day. They use their History of Art and Archeology background to create designs educated by the past, and made for the present.

 Expressiveness comes in many forms - it is your past, your future, and your present. When you wear YSSO you feel confident, powerful, and independent, you are supporting a community and carrying with you a history.
