A little history: In 1885, founder Saturio Carrera came to Madrid, Spain to open his workshop. After Saturio taught his son everything he knew, José completed his jewelry studies in Paris and returned to Madrid to take on the family business. 75 years later, they received a commission to create a tiara for Queen Fabiola of Belgium for her royal wedding in 1960, today Carrera is considered one of the 30 most prestigious jewelry houses in the world.
The house is celebrated for its unique, mythical, sculptural designs, drawing inspiration from nature and mythology. Prominent themes include animal figures, such as cats, serpents, and elephants. In addition, Carrera y Carrera produced a signature collection, Las Manos, that featured women’s hands as its central element.
