Combine French intricacies and Italian passionate designs and what do you get? The flair of Spanish artistry that is at once romantic, temperamental and seductive. Carrera Y Carrera embodies the Spanish art of Velazquez, Goya and Picasso and transforms them into a rich cultural line of luxury jewelry pieces. The result is a regal array of necklaces, earrings, rings and pendants that mirror the height of artistry in the architecture of Renaissance churches and Spanish royal courts. The details seem mini-sculptures set in baroque detail and even hints of Aztec and other New World artefacts that reminisce Spain’s past glory, when the sun never set in the empire. Well the sun shines eternally in Carrera Y Carrera’s luxury jewelry collection including its impressive Seda Imperial and Circulos De Fuego Collections.
Carrera y Carrera is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
