Spanish entrepreneur Manuel Carrera and his cousin Juan José launched Carrera y Carrera in 1979 as an expression of their family’s jewelry-making tradition, which dates to the nineteenth century. Known for its exclusive, authentic designs and impeccably handcrafted gold settings, Carrera y Carrera has become one of the leading fine jewelry brands of Spain — designing pieces for the likes of Olivia Palermo, Lady Gaga and Gisele Bundchen. Madrid-based artisans create all of Carrera y Carrera’s earrings, brooches, bracelets, men's cufflinks and other wares, which typically feature iconic jewels and a distinctive “mini-sculpture” level of artistry. From its maxi rings in gold and diamond filigree to its gardenia-shaped, white gold and diamond watch, Carrera y Carrera’s collection reflects the company’s love of nature, music and art.
Born from a family tradition dating back to the nineteenth century, Manuel Carrera and his cousin Juan José created the Carrera y Carrera brand in the mid 1970’s. Carrera y Carrera is famous for their exclusive design and gold work created by true craftsmen. These professionals, at the firm’s central workshops in Madrid, make each piece by hand, carefully nurturing even the finest detail. Carrera y Carrera has always found inspiration for its designs in nature and art. This inspiration has constantly changed, always seeking the expression of modernity, and is reflected in the finely detailed gold work. This work, made entirely by hand, makes each jewel a small figure of absolute perfection: mini sculpture. Spanish character and its values such as passion, enthusiasm or love of life are also present in the design and inspiration of the collections. Loved by celebrities like Mariah Carey, Scarlett Johansson and Daryl Hannah, Carrera y Carrera is an exciting addition to Gilt Groupe.
