About the Brand:
Tiffany & Co. is a symbol of refined taste and superlative quality all over the world. The brand has a reputation of a leader in luxury goods and diamond jewelry.
Everything about this high-end jewelry maker, including Tiffany Blue color, is iconic. During the time Tiffany’s has collaborated with the best jewelry designers such as Jean Schlumberger, Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso.
Tiffany & Co. engagement rings are unquestionably the most popular among diamond ring brands. What makes it to stand out? The answer is Tiffany diamond cut. Each diamond by the maker comes with excellent cut grades and is graded in house. The company controls every step of the grading process. Tiffany claims their standards as being higher than GIA standards. For a stone with borderline parameters, Tiffany’s experts will go down in grade in order it to be exactly as it described.
About Estate Jewelry:
Buying jewelry online might be challenging. The quality of the making has not gotten better over the time while the design is getting more and more generic. Add ever rising prices and you could end up with not finding anything suitable. To purchase a high-quality jewelry piece for an obtainable price consider buying estate items.
- Quality vs Quantity
Estate pieces mostly belong to the times when jewels were handmade and not mass produced. There were simply less jewelry makers at that time and they cared about their reputation. Opposed to the current fast fashion approach, life pace was in general slower. That allowed makers to take more time to craft truly quality pieces.
- Fair-Priced vs Overpriced
Designer pieces aka signed pieces can cost multiple times more than their unsigned equivalents. We pay not only for an item itself but also for the brand advertising campaigns and all the buzz the name is creating. Prices for estate jewelry form differently and mostly depend on the cost paid by a seller. A pre-owned Bulgari ring and a brand-new Bulgari ring have a very appealing price difference. Ask your local jewelry store about a retail price of the desired piece and you’d be pleasantly surprised.
- True value vs Seasonal rush
Pre-owned jewelry retains its value. Over the time it gets rare and more expensive. Think purchasing a new car that loses its value right after you left your dealer versus buying a vintage vehicle.
At Nadine Krakov Collection we love beauty and high-quality. Each of our estate jewelry piece is in excellent condition. We preserve the history and the greatest styles of the past so our clients can enjoy them at the fullest.
