The Candela jewelry house was founded over seventy years ago by the three Candela brothers in Valencia, Spain. The company name was originally called Candela Hermanos, and quickly grew into an immense manufacturer of karat gold jewelry known throughout the region and the world. Because of this, the Candela family has been at the forefront of European jewelry design and manufacturing for several generations. The success of the Candela brand of jewelry is credited to the expert craftsmanship and attention to detail found in the family's exquisite workmanship. The name "Candela" is synonymous with fine Spanish jewelry. With this impressive heritage, it is little surprise that daughter Andréa was inspired to create the Andréa Candela collection of fine jewelry in 2004.

The design team under Andréa Candela brings a "modern focus and highly desired perspective to the collections while carrying on the timeless traditions of early Candela creations". Andréa's passion for color radiates through every hand-picked gemstone and diamond which are chosen exclusively for their superb quality and incredible hue. Andréa, inspired by the beauty and heritage of Spain, has created a magnificent collection of jewelry incorporating sterling silver, 18kt gold, exotic genuine gemstones, and fine quality diamonds that proudly carries the Candela name.

Identifiable by the unique Armadillo finish and rope edge design trademarks, Andréa Candela brings together "old world" craftsmanship and today's fashion forward individual.
