The Romantic Story Behind The Galina Collection
BIKO has been a staple at the shop for years now. We’ve always admired the inspirations behind the brand (nature, contemporary art, architecture and travel) and truly fall deeper in love with its hand-crafted designs each season.
We can see designer Corrine Anestopoulos’ adoration for travel across BIKO, but especially in this collection. Always on the hunt for new sources of inspiration, Corrine collected pebbles from the beaches of Greece on her wedding day. These imperfect water-smoothed pebbles became the basis for the collection, Corrine creating casts out of each unique stone.
Derived from the Greek word “Galina” meaning ‘calm’ or ‘windless,’ the collection is rooted in comfort, tranquility, and oneness. The result: ultra romantic pieces infused with oneness to our earth.
Hand-crafted in Toronto, the Galina collection features rings, necklaces, and earrings that are corrosion-resistant, lightweight, and durable. The 14K dipped-gold and rhodium-dipped pieces blend stand-out uniqueness with everyday wearability to move with you through the motions of your life.
