Gallery Byzantium recognizes the traditions of the Byzantine Empire through their historically accurate and beautiful jewelry.
Seraphima McLean is the daughter of the Russian Orthodox priest who in 1991, established the jewelry design company dedicated to designing jewelry to honor the authentic Byzantium aesthetic.
I had the pleasure of visiting with Seraphima, whose formal training and education is in art history.
After her father’s pastoral and church duties required his full attention, she grew Gallery Byzantium into the small, family owned business based in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
She is accompanied by her husband and a small team of dedicated artisans who work together to carry on the authentic designs of Byzantine art in religious and secular jewelry that is Gallery Byzantium.
