Next year Maria Pascual will be almost 10 years old. Since then, we’ve seen thousands of people wearing our jewelry on the street, at events or on social networks as part of their lives. What’s more, one of the things that makes us most excited is to see one of our pieces on someone and, sometimes, we act a little foolish and ask them if the jewel is from Maria Pascual to check their reaction (who knows, maybe one day you’ll be talking to us and you won’t know!).
Being with you in the moments that make you shine is what motivates us to keep on designing jewelry that complements your most intrepid adventures. We wouldn’t be where we are without you, so this month we have decided to give voice to some of your stories along with our jewelry. Your stories have always been our greatest inspiration, so we wanted to dedicate a space to display the precious moments you have shared with Maria Pascual.
The stories you are about to read are real testimonials from Maria Pascual’s clients and customers, which they sent us with much love and gratitude. We would like to acknowledge and thank them for their collaboration and honesty; it is this kind of details that motivate us to continue creating pieces that will accompany you for a lifetime.
Bold Stories inspired by Maria Pascual
I met my boyfriend 9 years ago in a Rocío, to which quite honestly we went a little forced by our respective friends because we were both going through a bad period of our personal lives.
We were introduced by our friends and… there, in our beloved Rocío, it all began. Almost a year ago, in December last year, we returned with the excuse of going back to that house for a weekend to check it out and clean it up a bit (it had been a long time since we had been there). But the real reason was that my boyfriend took the opportunity and… asked me to marry him! On the way back, we stopped in Seville (we are from Cadiz) at the church of El Salvador to see the Virgin.
In front of the church is the store you have in Seville, Sweet Pea, where they sell all your jewelry. I spotted the Virgen del Rocio necklace and, as if it was a matter of destiny, I fell in love at first sight. I obviously bought it and, since then, there is not a day that I take it off! In fact, now that I’m preparing for the wedding and I’m searching for the perfect dresses, I’m trying to figure out how we can insert the medal in the dress to wear it with me on the wedding day.
I have many of your jewels and many stories linked to each of them, but I think the one I am about to tell you is the one that best represents the bond I have with Maria Pascual.
In the past few months I have been intervened 4 times… and unfortunately there are many more to come. In one particular surgery, I had just been fitted with a catheter for the supply of medication, I lost three organs and they put a morphine patch to accompany me on this journey. And after that, when I was discharged from the hospital, the first thing I did was to put on my two Maria Pascual chains, the Virgen del Rocío Necklace and the Multicross Necklace. When I wear them, I feel protected. For me, these two accessories have become my amulet. You have no idea of the meaning they hold in my life. Thank you, truly.

I still remember the first present I gave to my girlfriend. One night when we just came back from a party, she fell asleep with the computer on. I just happened to notice that she was looking at your website. Her birthday was a few weeks away and I took that clue I saw by pure chance to buy her a couple of things from Maria Pascual. I really won her over with that special detail!
On my first birthday when we were together, my boyfriend got me the Drops Necklace and it was a total surprise for me, we had been together for such a short time, really! That little gesture marked a turning point in our relationship, as it showed me how much he cared about me. We have been together since then and I still think that gift brought us together and signaled the beginning of a beautiful love story that continues to this day.
In Spring 2018 I bought my little chain of the Virgin of Guadalupe. It still accompanies me to this day! In fact, it’ s been present in two of the most important milestones of my whole life: my wedding day preparation and the birth of my son.
For years I have been a devotee of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and finding the medal with the chain in Maria Pascual, just the year of my wedding, was such a wonderful thing because I knew I could wear it that day and that it would be with me from then forward.
Coming back to your store for new pieces is always a joy, because I love everything you create and the warm and customized service you offer.

I have so many stories with your jewelry! Since I met you in 2015 with the Moon Necklace, which Dulceida always wore at the time, I have been in love with all your pieces.
The most recent story is actually from just a few months ago. We had two of my friend’s birthdays and we decided that the best gift for them was a jewel for a lifetime. One of them is a Horoscope maniac, so we gave her the Constellations Necklace and, the other one is truly a ring freak, so your new Vintage Heart ring stole her heart. Such a beautiful piece!
Thank you so much for designing with such passion. I hope you continue to do so for a long time!
I remember a very special moment with your jewelry. A very good friend of mine and I got upset over a truly stupid thing, but you know the drill: when you get pissed off with your best friend, there’s always drama involved in the end!
Unintentionally, we both got each other a gift from Maria Pascual. I gave her the World Necklace and she bought me the Moon Necklace. Withouteven expecting it, those necklaces became our amulets and the token of our reconciliation.
