Whim­si­cal and Grandil­o­quent Art

Focus of SWFL - - News -

Char­ac­ter­ized by a unique style and pre­cise de­signs where the com­bi­na­tion of a matte- shine ef­fect on gold, and metic­u­lous crafts­man­ship make for ex­cep­tional jew­elry pieces where gold and pre­cious stones come to life. This collection is in­spired by the em­broi­dery, fabrics, and col­ors of Spain's Golden Age. This touch of color and these bro­cades can be seen in pieces crafted in yel­low or white gold with amethyst pre­sented as grandil­o­quent and whim­si­cal art. Jew­elry with gen­er­ous vol­umes and rich dec­o­ra­tion where the char­ac­ter­is­tic and sig­na­ture Car­rera y Car­rera matte- gloss ef­fect can be ap­pre­ci­ated. Re­fined and or­nate pieces re­flect the im­age- pre­oc­cu­pied cul­ture that ex­isted dur­ing this pe­riod. For Car­rera y Car­rera, its link to Spain is es­sen­tial as a source of in­spi­ra­tion for the de­vel­op­ment of its col­lec­tions. The en­tire cre­ative and de­vel­op­ment process of each jew­elry piece takes place wholly in the Madrid work­shop. Each step in the cre­ation of a piece is in­flu­enced by the Span­ish char­ac­ter that has be­come one of the fun­da­men­tal pil­lars in the evo­lu­tion of the com­pany's ex­cel­lent tra­jec­tory through­out its his­tory. Car­rera y Car­rera en­dures thanks to a stan­dard of in­cal­cu­la­ble value – the savoir faire of the nearly 60 jewel­ers who work in its Madrid work­shop, where tra­di­tion and the ex­per­tise of mas­ter gold­smiths are joined to­gether. It is here that each jew­elry piece is crafted en­tirely by hand, giv­ing each one a flaw­less grandeur.
