    About Tubogas Design

    The Tubogas style draws its inspiration from gas pipes, a design concept that Bulgari embraced in the 1940s with the help of designer Carlo Weingrill. As the name suggests, Tubogas is flexible and can be adapted to various jewelry pieces, from rings to watches. The technique, originally a 19th-century plumbing process, involves wrapping metal in tight coils around a rod, then removing the rod to create a hollow chain. This technique gained traction among French jewelers in the 1940s and became a signature element for Bulgari, thanks to its collaboration with Weingrill. One of the most notable applications of Tubogas was in Bulgari’s Serpenti watch collection, where the coiled design mimicked a snake, a powerful symbol in ancient Roman culture.

    About vintage jewelry

    Vintage jewelry is a broad topic with multiple aspects to discuss. We decided to answer a few basic questions to provide a broad introduction to this captivating subject. So, what defines vintage jewelry? Why is it so appealing? And how does one navigate the optimal way to buy vintage jewelry online?

    In the industry, different sellers and makers have different opinions regarding the specific timeframes characterizing the creation of vintage jewels. Here at Nadine Krakov, our definition places vintage within the bracket of anything produced between 50 and 100 years ago. Consequently, we label all jewelry crafted from 1930 to 1980 as 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.
