The right jewellery can make or break an outfit, whether it’s an understated band ring or an in-your-face statement necklace. These Spanish jewellery brands are mostly the work of young, independent designers who, thanks to social media and online shops, have been featured in the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair and in Fashion Weeks across Europe.

Suma Cruz

Until recently Suma Cruz was best known for her stunning bridal headdresses and hair accessories, but has recently branched out with a pret-à-porter collection of nature-inspired designs guaranteed to draw attention. Chunky beetle-shaped rings, solid metal dragon-fly bracelets and flowing leaf earrings are just some of the pieces to find in this collection, which also includes versatile headdresses that will make an immediate impact with any outfit.

Small Affaire

Founder Nuria Blázquez and her partner Manuel have carried on a tradition which goes back three generations in the Blázquez family, but this brand is one of the first in Spain to be entirely online. The pieces are somewhere in the line of tradition but with a fresher, more modern appearance which make them very versatile and easy to wear.

Gaviria Jewelry

Founded by Barcelona-based Colombian-born jewellery artist Paula Gaviria, this brand designs and manufactures all of its pieces in the Catalan capital. ‘Colourful, chunky and bold’ is how Gaviria Jewelry describes its pieces which are inspired by contemporary culture both trend-setting and trend-watching. Check out their Instagram for a hyper-visual lookbook that feels like a living story.


If you like your jewellery to make a statement and prefer bold colours to precious metals then you’ll love the creative world of Papiroga. Working mostly with plexiglass, Papiroga’s hand-crafted imaginative designs favour geometric patterns, intense colours and quirky cuts, yet you could just as easily wear them with a casual work outfit as you could a statement outfit.

At first glance Sansoeurs‘ pieces could seem rather classic, but look again and you’ll see unusual designs and unconventional shapes. Founded by two sisters in 2010, Sansoeurs specialises in sophisticated minimalist pieces which manage to be simultaneously understated and eye-catching. Working nearly exclusively with gold, silver and diamonds, their engagement rings are as remarkable as their nose piercings.

Patricia Nicolás

Born to a family of jewellery makers – her parents run Nicol’s jewellers based in Madrid – Patricia Nicolás studied at Central Saint Martin’s in London before deciding to launch her own brand. Her contemporary, creative designs have been featured in Vanity Fair, sold in Harvey Nichols and Harrods and she’s collaborated with the likes of Vogue. Her collections are often inspired by notable characters such as Frida Kahlo and Pablo Picasso and she’s not afraid to use colour and bold shapes to create stand-out designs.

Urban Fawn

Inspired by nature, from its organic shapes to the way the natural world moves, Urban Fawn design simple yet elegant feminine jewellery made with eco-friendly materials. Think understated designs such as single band rings and slim bracelets but made with beautiful 18K gold which looks and feels great on. Urban Fawn’s designs can be worn with everyday casual outfits just as easily as they can enhance an evening dress.
