The Story behind Petra Star
When Passion, Creativity and Ethics Meet
Meet Dimitria Koumarnetos, the visionary behind Petra Star, a New York-based, Greek American-founded venture. Our brand draws inspiration from the Greek word for rock, "PETRA," seamlessly combined with the emblematic STAR. This fusion symbolizes Purity, Good Luck, and Ambitions.
As a woman-owned enterprise, Petra Star is dedicated to empowering women to embrace their inner ROCK STAR. We believe in the transformative power of choice, enabling individuals to shape their own destinies and craft a future that aligns with their aspirations for themselves and their children. Join us on this empowering journey as we celebrate the strength and potential within each woman to shine as brightly as a star.
Originating as a means to fund the founders college education, this venture quickly transformed into a passion for fashion and jewelry. Now, after three decades, it has blossomed into a reputable business renowned for its exquisite jewelry catering to diverse occasions. Our core values revolve around sustainability and the use of ethically sourced materials, all while upholding the highest standards of quality for our metals and gemstones. We take pride in repurposing gemstones extracted from vintage pieces, ensuring their reuse and minimizing waste. Additionally, our alloys are crafted from recycled materials that undergo a refining process before being transformed into new, beautiful pieces once again.
