From the beginning, Manuel Carrera was clear on what he wanted – that Carrera y Carrera become an internationally-recognized brand. It was May 1968 when Manuel traveled to Paris to exhibit his work in the exhibition palace at an event organized by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce. He couldn’t have imagined that one of his first international trips would coincide with such a historic moment for the neighboring country, France. That liberal vision that surged in May ‘68 in Paris increased Manuel Carrera’s need to express his own personal vision and make it manifest within the classic jewelry industry of the period.
