    Yanes: Claudio Yanes founded the prestigious Spanish firm, based in Madrid, in 1881. It is now in the hands of fifth-generation Yanes descendants. It is the favored brand of high jewelry worn by Spanish Royalty, the elite in Spanish society circles, and European Royal Houses. Cristina Yanes presents a high jewelry collection once a year and is very much part of Madrid’s social life. Bespoke jewelry services are offered and many young couples turn to Yanes before their big day for advice on rings, earrings, cufflinks and even tiaras. To unleash the creativity of their designs, and to get closer to a clientele with a smaller budget, Yanes has launched a second line: Yanes Young, an entry-level line of jewelry at very attractive prices. Their collections are conservative and innovative at the same time, neither too modern nor too classic, with seldom-used elements and new, almost unknown stones that are still very noble materials. “This line was born as an alternative to the usual client, although they are gems that don’t go out of fashion”.
