~ABOUT VASSIAS~ Vassia means gift of God, it comes from the name Agios Vasilis. The story of St Basil is quite similar to the one of St Nicholas (the Western Santa Claus). St Basil (Agios Vasileios) was a kind-hearted and helpful man, who was aiding the poor and needy ones while he was a bishop in Caesarea. We (Nathalie & Jiannis) are fascinated by this story, which is one of the reasons we called our shop Vassias. We look for loving accessories, a gift of love.
We strongly recommend removing your jewelry before engaging in any activities that can lead to contact with moisture or friction (ie: washing your hands, sleeping and showering) to maintain luster and prolong life.
