With an audience of over 2000 visitors, the event managed to adjust to the conditions and restrictions of the pandemic context while maintaining its purpose – to create a long-awaited meeting place and dialogue context between artists and the audience.
 
Over 150 contemporary jewelry designers presented their collections at Romanian Jewelry Week 2020: designers, collectives, schools, and associations of designers from Portugal, Italy, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Canada, Israel, China, South Korea, USA, Mexico, and many more, as well as guest partners like PIN Association, Krama Institute, Milano Jewelry Week, Budapest Art Jewelry Night.
