'Whichever route you may take, remember this: all roads lead back to yourself.
In terms of national heritage, Romania is a country in the process of self-discovery. For us, it is a game of connecting the dots, since we've always been on the forefront of mastery in the making of authentic designs. Romania has a fair weather, with four splendid seasons year-round, a wonderful scenery and is rich in contemporary jewelry artists with unique skills that complement themselves beautifully.
We source our inspiration from the natural abundance of a culture firmly rooted in craftsmanship. The logistics our designers employ for creating authentic jewelry are secrets of the trade, admittedly. Yet there are also all these stories you would want to hear about everything else, right?
Just follow the road, and trace a couple lines between the landmarks. Stop anywhere you like. Take a compass, and a magnifier. Don't forget to look at the stars.' [Ioana Cristina Casapu, editor AUTOR Magazine]
