3) Designer jewelry
According to local press, Russian national doll matryoshka is supposed to be a must buy souvenir in Moscow. You can find these painted wooden dolls nearly in every store! When I ask my overseas friends what things do they connect with Russia, they all agree that Matryoshka is a top national symbol of the country. This is why it’s so popular among tourists. However many young travellers find it too trivial and look for fresh brand new ideas. And here it is! Designers from local jewelry brand have come up with a great alternative – matryoshka-shaped earrings, bracelets, charms and necklaces. That is a completely new and modern view of the world-famous symbol! Special gift for those who have a taste in fashion, arts and beauty! The collection is made of 925 sterling silver.
