With all the talk in the news about the economic woes and uncertainties of Greece, many would-be tourists have weighed the advantages of traveling in a recession-racked country on the one hand, with the risks of spending time in a place with marked civil unrest. But while the world’s attention is focused on Greece, more savvy travelers are booking the vacation of a lifetime on Cyprus, Greece’s smaller island neighbor.
A week spent in Cyprus is likely to be one of the most memorable and romantic of your life. From the incredibly blue water of the sun-drenched beaches, to the incredibly array of seafood and fresh Mediterranean food, to the fun and festivity of the local culture, there is something here for everyone. Cyprus is especially well suited for a private romantic getaway with that special person in your life. A private bungalow perched on a hillside above a crystalline beach is less pricey and impossible to access than you might believe, and once you get there, you won’t want to leave!
In fact, the romance and majesty of Cyprus have led to an interesting phenomenon. A surprising number of couples who come to vacation in Cyprus end up driving or even walking down off the mountains into a local town to seek out a Cyprus jewelry store seeking a made-in-Cyprus engagement ring or another incredible piece of jewelry from a local shop with which to celebrate the most incredible trip of their lives.
If you are looking for your own Cyprus diamond or another piece of jewelry from the island, your choices are not limited to the touristy selection in an airport gift shop. There are dozens of incredibly Cyprus jewelry stores that have been designing and manufacturing jewelry in Cyprus for generations, so taking home a piece of Cyprus jewelry (especially if its a Cyprus engagement ring!) can be like taking home a piece of local history.
Here are just a few of the best Cyprus jewelry stores the island has to offer:
Located in sunny, beautiful Dhrenyia, Merekkis has been producing gorgeous made-in-Cyprus rings, bracelets, and necklaces for over 40 years. Although the husband and wife team that started this sleek, elegant shop initially produced every piece in the store by hand, today Merekkis imports over a dozen top brands in jewelry and watches, including Tissot, Longines and Hamilton.
It has been over 100 years since G. Stephanides opened his shop and began producing and selling his own line of jewelry. Since then, Stephanides’ made-in-Cyprus jewelry has found its way into the jewelry boxes of kings, presidents and dignitaries from all over the world. The Cypriot heritage comes through strongly in every single Stephanides design, from the local Cyprus pearls used in the elegant rings, to the pendant necklaces that are modeled after ancient Greek artifacts found right here on the island.
Whether you are looking for a ring designed in the style of an ancient Cyprus ring or a more contemporary style modeled after the latest here styles of today, or if you are even looking for a Cyprus engagement ring, you can find it all right here on this sunny island.
