According to the prestigious publisher BB Publications in its latest publication, Vicente Gracia now ranks among the thirteen best jewelry designers in the world.
The publisher, responsible for the Beyond Books jewelry books and Beyond Magazine, in its latest publication entitled “BBeyond Jewellery: spectacular pieces worth collecting 2020” gave a special commendation to Vicente Gracia for his career and international recognition.
The publication considers him to be one of the thirteenth best master goldsmiths in the world. In addition, Vicente’s career has also been recognized by Vogue and by leading jewelry specialists such as Christie’s.
Vicente has important clients as well as official institutions and royal houses he has been awarded the Spanish National Design Award (1986), the Spanish National Craftsmanship Award (2014), and the International Jewellery Award of the City of Valencia (1988).
The editors of the well-known magazine describe the Valencian designer as “an artist who presents a creative force that fuses avant-garde techniques with tradition to create incredibly elaborate, colorful and conceptually idiosyncratic pieces”. The Valencian designer explains in the publication that his real challenge is to turn a piece inspired by Tradition (in capital letters) into a contemporary jewel.
The selection criteria have taken into account those designers who over the years have demonstrated an excellent track record in their work and have made it the industry benchmark. On this occasion, the book also reflects the work of outstanding emerging designers, including the North American designer Hannah Carnegie, who lives in Valencia and is a member, together with Vicente Gracia of the ShineOnCollective.net collective, a project in solidarity with Unicef USA.

Alongside Vicente Gracia are Wallace Chan, Daniel Brush, Siegelson NY, Louisa Westwood, Arte Oro (Singapore), Katie Brunini, Rose Carvalho, Valerie Jo Coulson, Intisars, Katherine Wallach and the important Japanese collector Kazumi Arikawa.
