MANUEL SPINOSA

Manuel Spinosa


Manuel Spinosa was born in the tradition of jewellery making since his grandfather opened the first store in Cataluña in 1958. Manuel Spinosa studied jewellery design at the school of Fine Arts in Tarragona, where he learned the ways of jewellery designing. 


After eight years of experience as a designer in the boutique of his family, Manuel moved to Barcelona where he acquired extensive knowledge in setting of precious gems and settings with brilliants.  

And in 2006, Manuel opened in Marbella the first Exclusive Manuel Spinosa Jewellery Boutique, which launched his career as an entrepreneur.


An Interview with Manuel Spinosa


R: From what part of Spain are you?


M: I’m originally from Tarragona, a beautiful city with Roman origins, although most of my years in training as a jewellery designer and modeller were spent in Barcelona which is 100 kilometres away from Tarragona.

In making your jewelleries, do you think that it is in your blood or are you just continuing a family tradition? 

I think it is both. I am a descendant of both tradition and passion. I grew up in the jewellery field where my grandfather, Manuel Spinosa, also my namesake, opened the first store in Tarragona in 1958. For me, jewellery designing is not only a business but also a passion. I love everything about fashion. I love creating new things and taking on new challenges.

R: What do you like most about your profession?

M:The magic of creating something from my client’s thoughts, being able to capture their imagination and translating these into beautiful and unique jewelleries as well as earning my client’s trust is what I like the most. 

If you were given a chance to meet any famous or important people, who do you think would best wear your creation and why?

Because Marbella is such a wonderful city, it is a popular tourist spot and attracts lots of people giving me a chance to meet famous people around the world. Some of the people that I have already met include: Ana Garcia Obregon, Carmen Martinez Bordiu, Princess Maria Luisa of Prussia, Antonio Banderas and Melanie, Eva Longoria, Maria Bravo, etc,.  

For me personally, however, it was very special to design a jewellery sculpture of Marbella “Venus” in 18k gold with Australian pearls and have it worn by Maria Luisa of Prussia. She is a great humanitarian and the founder of Association of Concordia which helps everyone with AIDS. 

R: How long have you been a jewellery designer?

M: I was 5 years old when I started learning the art of jewellery making. I already made my own designs as well as Dalineanos abstract style. 

R: Do you also sell your jewelleries internationally?

M: Currently, all of my collections are available in Spain; however we have been planning for three years now to find the best company that would franchise my collections in various countries. Mexico and the U.S. are in my plans and we are hoping to make this into reality soon. You can also visit our site at www.manuelspinosa-franquicia.es for more information.

R: Can you tell me something about your collections? What do you think will be in season or in fashion today?

M:The fashion trends for jewellery today include combining elements together to create a powerful look. For women who are elegant and work in the corporate world, a large ring with unique design is a must. 

On the other hand, for active or athletic woman, jewellery for everyday use is ideal. In my latest design, both concepts and lifestyles are taken into consideration. As such, I have created designs wherein one can remove a part of the ring to make it practical for day use and bring it back together for an evening out.  Our clients can choose the size of the ring as well as the design if they want a different theme.

R: Who or what inspires you when you create the designs?

M: My inspiration mainly comes from Vostro, the woman who wants to become beautiful and who is confident of her femininity.


R: Can everybody buy Manuel Spinosa jewellery?

M: Everybody can buy Manuel Spinosa jewellery. I define affordable luxury! I try to have a wide range of prices available. This is to ensure that everybody gets their own quality and luxury jewelleries at an affordable price. We have jewellery made of sterling silver, 18k gold with semi-precious gems as well as diamonds.

R: How do you describe Manuel Spinosa as a person?

M: I would say he is a noble person who is passionate in his work, someone who enjoys creating, sensitive, charming and hardworking.

1. How was it like when you first started in jewellery designing?

M: I was lucky to be destined for the profession, through family inheritance from the jewellery sector, but I have great memories as a student at the School of Fine Arts in jewellery design, I learned new ways of designing, I opened their minds to more daring designs and classic jewellery break.

I feel as if I’m destined to be a jeweller as our family mostly leaned towards jewellery design. I have fond memories of when I was a student at the School of Fine Arts In Jewellery Design, I learned new ways of designing jewelleries and at the same time helped inspire a new way of incorporating classic designs with modern ones.


2. Do you think that having jewellery as your family’s tradition affected your entry to the jewellery world?

M: Not at all, the truth is that even if my family is composed of great and professional jewellers, I am different in a way as I want to modernize the jewellery industry by providing superior quality pieces that fit one’s budget. My philosophy is that I want jewelleries to become “affordable luxuries” without having to sacrifice the quality and originality of the products’ design.


3. Do you follow trends in making your own jewellery?

M: I follow trends and since I’m particularly close with fashion designers, models, agencies and stylist, I think it helped me to be aware of the latest in the fashion industry. I think that jewellery is a full fashion therefore it is important that one should always be up-to-date.

4. Do you favour using one type of metal finish as your signature or trademark? 

M: No. I think the secret to the success of my jewelleries is my ability to use a wide range of metal finishes as well as using other materials such as gems, colours and shapes in my jewellery making. I like to experiment and design jewelleries and since I have worked with different clients many of the designs in my boutique are suitable for all types of people.

5. The holidays are coming up. What do you recommend as gifts or presents for your client to buy?

M: I would recommend the latest in my jewellery pieces which have been infused with different metal finishes such as – silver, gold and platinum set with semi-precious gems and diamonds. Another thing that I would recommend are the latest Manuel Spinosa limited watches.

6. What are the essential jewellery pieces that every woman and man must have? 

M: I think that every woman should have a pair of earrings, a classic diamond chaton pendant that can be stylish and elegant and an exquisitely spectacular ring. For a man, one sports watch and a modern yet classic one.
