Carrera y Carrera Bonadea Collection Pendant c1990
This signature piece by Carrera y Carrera, easily among the most prestigious jewelry firms in the world today, is part of the collection that catapulted the designers to international acclaim. Bonadea, also known as the "Las Manos" or "hands" collection was originally created in the late 1970s. Carrera y Carrera continued this popular, signature design for decades thereafter. This one was handcrafted around 1990 out of 18k yellow gold in their renowned workshop in Madrid. It features a stunning, fine marquis-cut sapphire of the truest blue. Seven fine full cut diamonds adorn the cuff– a charming detail we love, along with the polished fingernails that make the hand so real! Carrera y Carrera are known for their imaginative, figural designs and it is no wonder why this piece has become such a signature for them. The pendant sits on an 18 inch diamond-cut gucci-link chain and measures 1 inch in length and 1/2 inch at its widest point.
