Spanish Sparkles

OK, some of our Twitter friends already know about the wonderful Spanish designer
who has joined our boutique. But for those of you not on Twitter (and there are many!) here goes:

The wonderfully talented designer Carlos Madirolas joined our boutique about one month ago. As you can see from the images below, his designs are very contemporary, and so fit in perfectly with our niche. He has worked in Ibiza and Menorca taking much of his inspiration from these beautiful Spanish islands. But now his workshop (which is like an Aladdin's cave for me) is in Madrid. All pieces are made with Silver,24k Gold and semi-precious stones.

Just take a look at the images below.

It was seeing the ring on the left which resulted in me contacting Carlos re a collaboration. I just fell immediately in love with this ring.The gems used are, amtheyst,garnet, olivine, blue topaz

Gorgeous rings again using amethyst, garnet, olivine and blue topaz; you choose the stone you want when you order.

Absolutely LOVE this ring with my favorite stone

These lovely square rings really look gorgeous on the hand. It's just different to the normal round stones, and consequently these are the designs that are most popular since we have started selling them

So what do you think? Am I raving for nothing? I would love to hear your views.
As a special introductory offer (you know how I love giving discounts-I will never be rich!!) we are offering 20% discount on ALL Carlos Madirolas pieces. Offer ends on Sunday 19 June 2011. Just enter code: CM06 on your order form.


  1. I absolutely love these, seriously!!!! How does the sizing work?

    Happy Friday :)

  2. Hi Simone
    Thank you for your lovely comments.
    Re sizing, tell me your UK size and it will be made in that size. They are all made to measure. Hope that helps ;-)

  3. They are all so gorgeous, Vanessa. I have a hard time figuring out which one I like the most! I think the square red ring in the last photo is quite a stunner!

  4. P.S. I closed my Twitter account, just so you know. I really didn't "get" Twitter. I haven't seen much of you on FB lately, though. I hope you are well! xo, A

  5. Vanessa, these are really pretty. I prefer understated jewelry, and the single square stone would be pretty enough for dinner and subtle enough for daytime.

  6. Thank you Adrienne and Rebekah
    @Adrienne-I thought I hadn't seen you much on Twitter whereas I spend more time on Twitter than on FB, that's why we keep missing each other ;-)
    Hope you are well sweets?
    @Rebekah- yes, I usually wear only one piece at a time. But sometimes I like a piece to have the wow factor if that is the only ring on my fingers;-)

  7. Love ALL of the pieces, Vanessa!!! So beautiful! The first ring has all those beautiful colors and I just love necklaces, bracelets and rings that contain several beautiful colors together! Love the fourth and last rings too (love them all, of course!) ... simply stunning!
