Gift Guide #8: Quadrum Gallery-modern artist expression for our 12 days of gifts for the holidays series

From Quandrum Gallery’s gift guide- a stack of bracelets

This season we are lucky enough to have enlisted 12 expert modern designer retailers, antique dealers and shops for our holiday gift guide. For each installment, we have asked for suggestions from their brick and mortar or online stores. We have also asked what gift they would choose for themselves this holiday season.

Modernity, creative expression and the boundless imaginations of a well-rounded selection of contemporary jewelry artists define Quadrum Gallery’s sensibility. A treasure trove of talent in a streamlined, elegant space at the Mall at Chestnut hill, Quadrum is the go-to jewelers in Boston for those who live there as well as international tourists. It has also evolved into an online destination which showcases the passion, energy and daring materials, combinations, new arrivals and one-of-a-kind pieces of its featured artists.

Director of the Gallery Sia Maravelias offers these holiday gift suggestions:

“It’s always the perfect time to give this signature 18K yellow gold snake bangle by Gabriella Kiss! This bracelet is a Quadrum classic, a piece that women who desires snake symbolism of eternal love and/or rebirth and transformations and natural inspired beauty in clean pared down lines rather than ornate antique inspired styling would be thrilled to receive for the holidays. Meticulously crafted, this gorgeous piece of wearable art features diamond eyes, and makes for an edgy addition to any bracelet stack. A true heirloom in the making, this piece represents Gabriella’s appreciation for traditional motifs yet re-invented with out-of-the-box  thinking. It also represents a passion for local, handcrafted beauty. For the sparkle obsessed and Gabriella Kiss collectors alike, this bracelet is also available with a pave diamond head!”


“From bold vivid colors to styles like these with subdued grey diamonds that pop in 18K gold, Amali earrings should be on the top of your holiday gifts this year. We chose these due to their elegant shape and the look of woven textures which designer Sara Freedenfeld spins into gold by hand. The earrings have a truly tactile feeling and although are large enough to make a statement, they are lightweight and easy on the lobes. The grey diamond beads glow with subtle shimmer—the perfect way to shine for the holidays and year-round”


“What better color to pop the holiday season than with a fine burgundy such as the deep rich red tourmaline cabochon in this Annette Ferdinandsen branch ring. We love the smooth and minimal beauty of this wear-anywhere and with-any-piece-in-your wardrobe colored bezel set gemstone juxtaposed against the 18K yellow gold more naturalistic branch for the band. And the touch of the scattered black diamonds which adorn the bezel adds a surprise element that finishes off the ring with perfection.”


And what does Sia want for her holiday gift this year?

“The piece of jewelry that has climbed to the top of my wish list this year is this Maria Beaulieu enhydro quartz pendant. Encased in a simple 18K yellow gold bezel, each of these pendants is undeniably unique and honors the beauty of the natural world. The word enhydrous has Greek origins meaning “having water within”. A piece of Enhydro contains water purified by hundreds of thousands of years of geological time contains a soothing, grounding energy that will unite you with the power of each stone. To own one of these pendants is to feel the mesmerizing, meditative energy of the earth. All I can say to this as a holiday gift is Yes! Please!
