'Big Secret's' jewels brilliantly capture diva's love for life
Jun '09
Carrera Y Carrera, the world renowned Spanish jewellery house offers its 'Big Secret' - a selection of the most bewitching pieces from its 2007 collection comprising the Ava, Sol Y Sombra and Te Quiero collections designed in tribute of Ava Gardner, the legendary Hollywood actress.

Blending 18k gold with 10c diamonds, these painstakingly handmade jewels are the outcome of Spanish passion, daring imagination and flawless workmanship, presenting style conscious women a powerful and stunning array of jewels.

Nathalie Guedj, Carrera Y Carrera CEO, said: “This trio of collections - Sol y Sombra, Te Quiero and Ava draw inspiration from Hollywood film legend Ava Gardner, who is even today regarded as the quintessence of feminine beauty and of her love affair with Spain. They also capture the artistic mood that prevailed in Spain in the mid 1950s when she was its most famous visitor who lived in Madrid for several years. The 'Big Secret's' jewels brilliantly capture the diva's love for life and are sure to resonate with the aspirations of all proud, independent and individualistic women.”

A tantalising trio
Each of the Big Secret's' lines brilliantly reflect Gardner's life and times in Spain. The Ava collection is a tribute to her sculpted beauty and ivory skin that conjures up the sparkling nights she spent in Madrid clad in gold lace, silk and diamonds. Its pieces are sensual, opulent, proud, yet delicate and full of life. It includes a show-stopping necklace in yellow and white gold with diamonds designed in crescent shape that suspends a circular pendant. While pave diamonds neatly line the white gold arch, delicate floral patterns adorn the yellow gold.

It's fittingly matched by reversible hoop earrings, one in white gold and the other in yellow gold as also a bracelet in the same design. Ava's one-off rings in white gold feature its well known sun motif studded with rose and brilliant cut diamonds as well as reversible sun motif pendants strung on double chains, in white gold.

Sol Y Sombre on the other hand captures the beauty of the afternoon sun in the bullfight ring as a symbol of passion and colour depicting it with its signature sun motif appearing on rings and pendants in yellow and white gold studded with diamonds that are perfect as casual accessories.

While the Te Quiero collection features the brand's famous giraffe motif epitomising Gardner's sweetness, dedication and love for life, as displayed in rings combining yellow gold and white gold, with smoked quartz and diamonds and in necklaces and bracelets blending yellow gold with diamonds. Exuding fun and sophistication, Te Quiero is a collection for the young and young at heart.

Unravel Carerra Y Carrera's 'Big Secret' now available at its first Monobrand boutique in Mall of the Emirates and in select Damas Les Exclusives Boutiques in Dubai.
