ROMANANIAN JEWELRY WEEK aims to be the largest event in Romania dedicated to contemporary jewelry and a landmark on the map of international profile events.

We've selected the designers with the most spectacular ideas, concepts, forms, colors, techniques and means of expression, in order to disclose them to an international audience." David Sandu – curator and founder of Romanian Jewelry Week.
