About Roberto Coin brand
Before establishing the eponymous brand, Roberto Coin learned the craft of jewelry making from the Italian manufacturers.
He started a company that supplied other jewelers with 18k gold items. Twenty year later, in 1996 Roberto Coin introduced his first collection Appassionata under his name in the US.
Coin’s sources of inspiration are his travels, nature, and Italian heritage. Roberto Coin jewelry is considered the modern Italian standards of quality and elegance. His hand-hammered pieces always have been at the highest level of making.
Roberto design is based on maximum wearability of his pieces. Coin’s jewelry gives a wearer freedom to create bracelet stacks and necklace layering. Roberto Coin pieces from different collections can be easily mixed with each other — just like the designer mixes different colors of gold in the great looking combinations.
About snake jewelry
Snake jewelry has been around since ancient times. Snake is one of the most diverse mythological symbols. Depending on the culture, snake jewelry meaning varies from a symbol of rebirth and transformation to immortality, healing, and fertility.
Serpent jewelry was extremely popular during Art Nouveau period. Being a part of the nature, snake motif was just right for jewelry design of that time. Many of the diamond or colored gemstone eyed snake rings, wrapped around gold snake bracelets and Art Nouveau necklaces came from that era.
For the next fifty years snake, as a motif in jewelry making, was gradually losing its popularity. It started thriving again in 1960s, when such designers as Cartier, Bulgari and Boucheron started to implement the reptile shape in their collections. Those collections were approved by many celebrities and jewelry aficionados. Since then, snake jewelry has never gone out of style. Today wearing a snake piece means to wear something cool, powerful and edgy.

About estate jewelry
Buying jewelry online can 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 significant 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.
