Do you know which country makes the most jewelry? You probably guessed it right, China. The United States is second and followed by Australia. Surprisingly, Russia is on fourth place. But even more surprisingly, Italy, Spain, and France are off the list in the top ten jewelry-producing countries. These three countries produce one of the most elegant signature collections in the world. So why are they not in the list? One reason is that the jewelers in these countries — for instance, Roberto Coin in Italy — take a lot of time to perfect their skills and craftsmanship. It’s one of the best tips to remember when buying jewelry: if you want the best in artistry and workmanship go for any of these three countries and you’ll be buying rarer kinds of jewelry collection.
Roberto Coin is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco, Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, and SW Broadway in Portland.
