    About Trianon jewelry

    Trianon is famous for fabulously combining precious stones and natural exotic materials. The House was founded in 1979, and ever since Trianon pieces have been crafted in the brand’s New York City-based studio. Trianon design is edgy, stylish, and recognizable. The company developed their unique style based on using such materials as burled wood, natural shell, and exotic stones. All the pieces are hand-made, individually numbered and stamped. Trianon’s clientele includes royalty and highly successful entrepreneurs. They love the House’s design for wearability that is thoughtfully balanced with unusual and sometimes extravagant look. Simultaneously, Trianon cufflinks are well-known as timeless, classic pieces. And even in such formal category as cufflinks the brand continuously manages to come up with fresh, uncommon elements in design.
    In 1989 Trianon purchased the Seaman Schepps company whose eloquent style resonated with the House vision of jewelry design. Today both companies are well-known among jewelry aficionados that prefer to purchase uniquely designed, high-quality pieces.

    About vintage jewelry

    Vintage jewelry is a broad subject which contains multiple aspects to discuss. We decided to answer a few basic questions to give a general introduction to the subject.
    So, what is vintage jewelry? Why is it so appealing? And what’s the best way to buy vintage jewelry online?
    In the industry, different sellers and makers have different opinions on the time period when vintage jewels were made. Here at Nadine Krakov, we consider vintage as anything being made between 50 and 100 years ago. Therefore, all jewelry produced from 1930 to 1980 is called vintage.
    This time frame comprises Art DecoRetro and Mid-Century styles. Why do we love vintage jewelry so much? It’s all about the quality of making and, of course, the aesthetic.
    Vintage pieces were mostly made by hand or at least hand-finished while modern jewels are mainly cast. As the lifestyle back in the days was much slower, jewelry makers literally had more time in their hands. Skilled craftsmen honed their craft and reputation. They couldn’t allow a flimsy, poorly done piece to ruin that. Mass market jewelry didn’t exist at that time. Each little detail of a piece was executed thoughtfully and with the high quality in mind.
    All the above is especially important when you are looking for a vintage engagement ring. If you want to find a special, one-of-a-kind engagement ring, look no further because we’ve got you covered. Either it’s a perfect diamond ring or a stunning color gemstone ring, we have a great variety to choose from.
    How to shop your vintage jewelry online? Ask questions about the maker’s marks and hallmarks, request a video of the piece, and show it to your jeweler. The easiest way to be confident with your purchase is to find a trustworthy, reputable seller. And if you happen to be in the Beverly Hills area, just google “vintage jewelry near me”, find Nadine Krakov Collection store and stop by for a good chat with a sip of champagne.
