Assamblage, the National Association for Contemporary Jewelry, was launched in May 2015 during Romanian Design Week, the outcome of a 6-year project supporting, developing and structuring the emerging field of contemporary jewellery. Assamblage is the main and most active platform in Romania dedicated to the craft and design of jewellery as an independent art form, in close connection with related fields such as architecture, product design and visual arts. In 2017, Assamblage's participation at JOYA consists of the "Camera Lucida" project, with the support of The Administration of the National Cultural Fund.

AGC, Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo, is a non-profit organisation that was created to develop and promote the art of contemporary jewellery meant as artistic research, the renewal of the concept of ornament, experimenting with new materials and technologies, and the protection, study and updating of historical heritage through know-how and skills. AGC was founded in Trieste in June 2004 by a group of professionals to create new opportunities for the development and qualification of contemporary jewellery, aiming to promote a constructive and synergistic dialogue with the artistic and productive scenes on an international level.
