Prologue was established in 1994 by Pedro de Aranda to design and create unique art objects and jewellery. It is a luxury goods designer and manufacturer, specialising in bespoke art, jewellery and accessories that are often limited to one piece.
DESIGNED AND HANDMADE IN-HOUSE
Prologue’s objets d’art and jewellery are often privately commissioned unique pieces, each made to a specific design order. Each piece is handmade using a variety of materials, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern, precision techniques. The objects can be most simple or extremely complex, using automation, light and sound to bring the piece to life. The jewellery is always unique in design and often brings together elements of nature, tradition and legend in its creation.
The aim is always to surprise with an ever-changing collection of unique art and to create bespoke pieces specific to clients’ own tastes and requirements. Pedro de Aranda, founder and creator, has worked alongside royal families from Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Throughout his life, he has designed and created truly unique pieces that are highly sought after by collectors around the world.
