The brand was established by a brilliant sculptor named Manuel Carrera in 1885, in Madrid, the capital of Spain. The stylish and sophisticated brand Carrera y Carrera bears the tradition of jewelry making initiated over a century ago that captured the beauty of life in exquisite miniatures, with every tiny nuance conveying vivid, ardent emotions and feelings.
With a great desire to present something special for customers, the company designed decorations with pictures of animals, which became the style of the company in its beginning period. The favored themes—flowers, mysterious panthers and butterflies—were admired by ladies of high society.
Looking at the pieces of Carrera y Carrera, one can easily notice that they possess a unique style, unusual romantic images, mythological plots and miniature pictures of beautiful animals. The jewelry of Carrera y Carrera features discrete attributes such as a uniquely exclusive matte finish, an inherited family secret and intricate detail that requires the talent of highly skilled artisans who are dedicated to maintaining the integrity of their art.
These distinctive characteristics passed from generation to generation. Each of the items Carrera y Carrera produces is carefully crafted with special attention to every single detail. Thus, a piece becomes more than jewelry, but a work of art.
Collections that Symbolize Creativity
At present, more than eight thousand designs are in the Carrera y Carrera collection, although many are one-of-a-kind pieces and others are part of the company's private collection. The jewelry collections Carrera y Carrera offers are bracelets, chains, cufflinks, earrings, necklaces, pendants and rings.
In July 2005, Carrera y Carrera unveiled a new bamboo-inspired jewelry collection of gold combined with colored stones— sapphires, diamonds, rubies, garnets, agates and carnelians—which became very popular with clients. Most recently, Carrera y Carrera has launched its Avalon watch with mink straps found in four colors: white, green, purple, and pink.
A Royal Name in Jewelry
Being a renowned Spanish jewelry house, Carrera y Carrera received the attention of the Spanish Royal Family and became the only brand commissioned to create pieces for them. The company sometimes received special orders from the president of De Beers and produced pieces for the Spanish government, as well. Carrera y Carrera manufactured the famous “Saber of Victory” that was decorated with the symbols of all the Spanish provinces. In addition to creating imperial items, the house is also distinguished for a fabulous “tiara” made of rubies, emeralds, sapphires and gem diamonds, which was offered as a gift by the Spanish Royal Family to Queen Fabiola of Belgium.
