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.
