The bestiary of Carrera y Carrera




The Bestiario collection by the Spanish Carrera y Carrera: realistic-looking gold animals ♦ ︎

Flowers and animals are two inexhaustible sources of inspiration for jewelers. Since ancient times, in particular, jewelry that depict animals was fashionable. Or, better, fashion to a certain point, because necklaces with lion-shaped pendants, bull-headed rings, armlets that look like snakes wrapped around the arm were also considered as amulets, to drive away evil spirits or to take hold of some force hidden in the type of animal represented.

In this vein Carrera y Carrera, renowned Maison of Madrid, has created the Bestiario collection.

In this case the animals turned as jewels are quite lively: tigers in gold that quarrel smoky quartzes, wings of raptors eagles, spiteful monkeys with sapphires on the fur, snakes ready to bite those who approach. The jewels, all in gold, are made with a realistic appearance, with a patient sculptural workmanship, as it is in the traditions of Spanish jewelry. Federico Graglia
