Designer jewelry at Elsa Vanier's gallery

The Gallery showcases works by silversmiths, jewellers, gemstone-sculptors (or lapidaries) and glypticians. Most of the artists follow their own independent path, without heeding fashion or trends. In parallel, alongside the permanent “in-house” designers, the Gallery welcomes guest designers for temporary exhibitions.
Every year, the Gallery organizes 4 to 5 exhibitions. Some focus on one single designer, others are theme-based exhibitions presenting several artists.


Designers are selected by a committee according to several criteria: the emotional charge produced by their work, originality and meaning. We also assess the quality of workmanship, the materials used, artistic qualities and how the works fit in with the style of the Gallery.
