Modestly tucked away in a quiet alley of the Borne neighborhood, Moska sidles up to Barcelona’s narrowest street, Carrer de les Mosques, after which it is named. This jewelry shop is an exquisite trove of precious gemstones, antique tribal adornments and 22 carat gold necklaces encrusted with rubies and fit for a maharajah. The store is a fusion of rare antique pieces and contemporary designs by Barcelona-based jewelers which often combine ancient and modern features. Each and every item tells a tale of age-old tradition and ritual, whether they are Sumerian inspired earrings, genuine Phoenician glass bracelets, Afghan turquoise or intricately designed Indian rings. With degrees in both History and Anthropology, the owner Maka Abraham is a magpie of jewelry, her findings stretching through the ages tand across the world. She travels to India twice a year to work with local stonecutters and goldsmiths in Jaipur – “the best in their craft”, drawing inspiration from the country’s vibrant culture. Abraham also frequently visits auctions in Paris to source Roman coins (which are made into rings and necklaces) and other curiosities to incorporate into new pieces. New designs depend on the jewels available, and each collection is limited to ten pieces as a way to constantly inspire and refresh. The prices range from 10€ to 30,000€, with an average price of around €350. “It’s a small shop, so it’s important to have what nobody else does,” she says. Moska is a rare jewel in Barcelona like the treasures in the store itself, which are truly original pieces of world history.Show lessRead more
