Carrera y Carrera is Spain’s most international jewellery brand with boutiques in 40 countries dotted around the globe.
Celebrating its 130th anniversary this year, Carrera y Carrera still produces each and every last piece of jewellery in its workshops just outside Madrid, staffed by a team of artisans and goldsmiths who carry out the elaborate and highly sculptural designs conceived entirely in Spain.
The spirit of the brand is absolutely unique, and the exceptional work of the Spanish goldsmiths brings the gold to life with miniature sculpted figures and detailed textures. Each piece issuing from the workshop is numbered and allows for the tracking of every person involved in the different stages of the jewellery’s creation.
Nature, animals and Spanish culture are recurrent themes in Carrera y Carrera’s magical, artistic universe, and the founder’s predilection for sinuous leopards and delicate hands still influences designs today. If the idea of a genuine piece of Spanish jewellery is on your list, then the stunning Palacios del Sur collection, inspired by the Alhambra Palace in Granada and the Mosque in Cordoba, and the Seda Imperial collection, taking motifs found on a traditional Spanish silk shawl, are bound to inspire.
The flagship boutique of the brand is located on Madrid’s luxury shopping street and is decorated in Carrera y Carrera’s hallmark style, with red carpets and dark furniture.
International in scope, but thoroughly Spanish in identity, Carrera y Carrera perpetuates Spain’s historical jewellery traditions with artistry and a unique identity.
All Carrera y Carrera’s highly imaginative jewellery is made in Spain, in workshops located just outside Madrid by a team of professional artisans. Once the design has been created on paper, artisans cast a wax model, which is then used for the traditional lost-wax melting technique. Gemsetters see to the next stage to bring colour and soul to the gold pieces Carrera y Carrera is so famous for. Every single piece is hand-polished and comes with a reference number to ensure the unique provenance of your jewel.
Carrera y Carrera has a limited, but absolutely original and romantic, line of wedding bands in yellow and white gold in its Promesa collection. The wedding bands are sculpted by hand and depict two bodies merging in a kiss using contrasts of satin brushed and highly polished gold to create a wonderful sensation of motion.
