It’s got the Spanish passion and tropical temperament. The Carrera y Carrera Gardenias Collection reminisces about the romance between Mother Spain and its volatile, excited daughter, the island of Cuba. The rings can be flashy and a bit loud like Havana nights, following the beat and swings of salsa in a hot summer afternoon. It’s sensual, artistic, and at once reserved and liberal. The Gardenias Collection includes the medium ring, which features white gold, rock crystal, and diamonds. It has 78 diamonds and measures 0.96 x 1 x 1.12 inches. This ring is also available in a slightly bigger size, the Gardenia Maxi Ring. For a twist, you can have the ring in yellow gold, reflecting the golden sunset of Havana, when the city is just about to turn the heat.
Carrera y Carrera is available at Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto, California.
