All the Romanian jewellery designers in the Top Romanian Jewellery Designers impress with creativity and a sense of remarkable style and elegance, emphasizing beauty.
The specificity of Romanian jewellery designers is that they highlight the beauty of the face of the women who wear their jewellery pieces. So, it’s not only about the beauty of the collection pieces they create, but it’s more about the woman who wears that jewellery.
The methodology we used to compile the Top Romanian Jewellery Designers
For collecting this top, we analyzed the following criteria:
- we reviewed the quality of the products by checking the comments and the reviews on their social media accounts; some brands have made it to please their customers, even though they are not so famous, while others still have to improve their products
- we compared the brand’s popularity on social media; it’s not only about the number of followers, but it’s about the quality of the engagement they get
- we checked the variety of products and designs; again, it’s not only about the volume but about offering the customers what they’d usually search for
- we reviewed and compared the prices shown with the international market average;
- we measured the presence of the reviewed designers and their brands online in the last six months; some designers are more present than others, so it was a strong point for the designers and brands whose names showed more while searching for them on Google Romania;
- we analyzed the reviewed designers and brands by their international presence – are they present in markets other than Romania? Have they announced their intention to go internationally? Have they got international fame? In our opinion, any local designer needs to try and expand to other markets and this is what we encourage by mentioning these designers in our tops.
