30 Things You Want for Christmas ... Orquídeas Collection by Carrera y Carrera

A graceful flower with enchanting colours and splendid petals, orchids are cosmopolitan flowering plants that could be found everywhere. 

In arts, the resplendent beauty of the plant, which counts the renowned vanilla plant as part of its family, are oftentimes immortalised as paintings and even as motifs on clothing articles, such as the manila shawls.

While garlands made of fresh orchid flowers may evoke that beautiful memory of your exotic vacation somewhere far away from the hustling cityscape, rest assured it may only last for a few days as the condition of our climate, which is warm and humid, are not in favour with the fresh petals. 

But here’s a suggestion: Why don’t you invest in the Orquídeas collection by Carrera y Carrera?

What is Carrera y Carrera?
A renowned Spanish jeweller based in Madrid, Carrera y Carrera is an icon in its own right with more than 125 years of tradition. 

Its designs are oftentimes characterised by unique styling – an amalgamation of matte-shine effect with volumes and meticulous craftsmanship – and precision. To date, the brand is present in 40 countries and Malaysia is one of them.  

Why Orquídeas collection is different from other orchid-inspired jewellery collections?
That’s a good question! Orquídeas is an outstanding collection due to the way how the collection is presented: A collection of orchid bouquets. 

Here, the artisans of Carrera y Carrera carefully sculpted the pieces and add in great volumes to bring forth its delicacy.

How long does it take for the master craftsmen to conceive the collection?
To create a collection that is imbued with precision and meticulousness, it could take hundreds of man hours for the craftsman to create them, step by step. Thanks to the full attention paid on the crafting process, owning the Orquídeas collection by Carrera y Carrera is a worthy investment.

What is the best way for me to pair the exquisite pieces from the Orquídeas collection?
While plain dresses and ensembles may look pretty and stand out with the bejewelled orchid bouquets, perhaps traditional attires with rich and delicate floral prints (think Baju Kurung or kebaya) may sync with the collection. 

But of course, you don’t have to wear everything at one go. Try dividing the collection with the key pieces that you have in your wardrobe. For instance, the necklace may go well with a strapless little black dress.

Where and when can I get my hands on the bejewelled orchids?
For more information on the collection’s availability, do make your way to the Carrera y Carrera store in Malaysia at the swanky Starhill Gallery.
