Carrera y Carrera has created two alluring pieces inspired by the sinuous snake. The year 2013, which is hailed as the year of the snake brings new designs full of creativity and character. The powerful symbolism and sinuous lines of this reptile is captured beautifully in the new collection. As a tribute to the sculptural origins of the international Spanish jewelry brand Carrera y Carrera adds exceptional new pieces to its successful Bestiario Collection every year.
The Serpiente (Snake) bracelet is born of the duality symbolic of this animal and when viewed in detail, each piece tells a tale different than that at the first glance. A line of white diamonds runs along the body of one snake, while the other snake’s back is covered with brown diamonds to distinguish the two struggling bodies. Two rubies are placed at heart level and hidden inside both snakes and symbolize the animal’s strength and fortitude. This delicate piece has a great technical complexity attributed to it as it is crafted from more than thirty individual components. Each piece took six months of intensive work due to its size, which has in turn resulted in an unparalleled quality.
The life-like Serpiente (Snake) ring in yellow gold with green quartz is another example of the fine craftsmanship of the company. The snake’s position and perspective capture the instant just before attack, filling this jewel of magnificent realism with energy and power.
These two unique pieces has made the Bestiario Collection from Carrera y Carrera comes to life once. The matte-gloss finish of the gold, characteristic of the company, endows these two mini-sculptures with an exceptional realism.
