Frangos was formed in 1986 in Greece by brothers Nicolas and Panayiotis Frangos. They began as a small family atelier but soon expanded to retailers throughout their native country and in twenty countries abroad. In 2003, Frangos received an award from the Institutes of Fine Arts at the international exhibit “Eclat de mode” in Pairs. Frangos has also been included in Swarovski’s Crystalized Jewelry Collection—an amalgam of the industry’s most cutting-edge international designers demonstrating the endless facets of Swarovski elements. Frangos is fiercely dedicated to quality and craftsmanship in their designs and their jewelry is all handcrafted by a small team of artisans.
