The Culture of Jewelry

 

Infinity Bracelet

“The market for fine quality craft jewelry has always been well served by shows like the Philadelphia Art Museum Craft Show, Baltimoreπs American Craft Councilπs show and otherπs in and around the area. The artist’s who show there are available in fine galleries across the country. But, they have always been under represented in the Philadelphia area and especially within the city limits.

Enter, Marchi-The Culture of Jewelry. Celebrating ten years at it’s current location on the edge of Jewelers Row. Owner John Marchiafava, after a life time in the traditional jewelry business decided to represent American artist’s such as Todd Reed, with his innovative raw diamond collection, Megan Patrice Riley,  Sarah Graham, Emanuela Duca, Dahlia Kanner and other’s including many local artists. “I find it much more rewarding than the current trend in popular jewelry of duplication, discounting and the like. Also the quality and originality is a pleasure to sell, as well as developing relationships both across the counter with customers and with the artists who create the work.”
