Amazing, Amazing Place for Jewelry in Barcelona!

As I was winding my way through the narrow cobbled streets of old Barcelona I stumbled on what may now be my favourite jewelry shop in the world!

La Basilica Galeria (C/ Sant Sever 7, 08002 Barcelona, Spain (Eixample)) is an art gallery and jewelry shop rolled into one. From the moment you walk in the door, greeted by a crimson mannequin spewing rose petals across the threshold, you’re captivated by all there is to see inside.

The shop is 2 large rooms crammed full with display cases. So many different artists are featured in here, it’s quite overwhelming! The jewelry is gorgeous, and it has something for every kind of taste, from whimsical and playful to baroque, gothic, blingy or minimalist. I decided I wanted to get something as a birthday treat, but it took me an hour to choose! The staff were very helpful, and opened cabinet after cabinet to let me try some things, while setting aside the pieces I was narrowing down.

The prices are a good range, everything from affordable to expensive, but not out of reach.

I highly recommend this as a stop if you’re in Barcelona, and if you love jewelry.

My purchases? A gorgeous oxidized silver necklace, and a beautiful scrollwork ring.
