Sol y Sombra means "Sun and Shade" in Spanish. Though it sounds like it, Sol y Sombra is not a beach resort in Mexico. The name got its inspiration from Spain's bullfighting arenas, where the cheapest seats were directly under the heat of the sun (Sol) and the best seats were under the shade (Sombra). The Sol y Sombra seats get a fair deal of both. Now it is not just the matadors and the bullfight aficionados who can enjoy the Sol y Sombra. The biggest jewelry making name in Madrid Spain, Carrera y Carrera, has captured the intensity and revelry of the famous Spanish tradition in its Sol y Sombra golden jewelry collection. The designer earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces feature the radiant rays of the sun in gold mountings that hold expertly cut diamonds and precious stones. The pieces perfectly accent your outfit for that stunning, casual look. Let your jewels help you to a bright and sunny disposition with Carrera y Carrera's Sol y Sombra, available at Shreve & Co. in Post Street, San Francisco.
