    Chopard was initially established in 1860 as a watchmaking brand. Along with the high-end watches, the Swiss company is famous for its luxury jewelry pieces. Meaningful heart-shaped design, floating diamonds and red-carpet fame — those are all the parts of Chopard’s authentic concept.

    The core of Chopard philosophy is joie de vivre and freedom of creativity. In 1976 this philosophy led the Maison to create the first watch with free-moving diamonds between crystal glass. “Diamonds are happier when they are free” — this motto goes along the lines with Chopard spirit. The concept of Happy Diamonds works for jewelry as well. Chopard Happy Diamond Heart necklace is emblematic, stylish and very desirable.

    Each brand’s piece is made in one of its three production sites. The culture of craftsmanship and quality standards are exemplary high here. For instance, Chopard only uses diamonds with fluorescence between “none” and “faint”.

    Recently the brand has been following the strict rules of sustainable and ethical jewelry production. Responsibly sourcing diamonds and gold has become a necessity for the brand’s values. The latest update on this matter was Chopard’s promise to make all the gold used to craft their jewelry 100% ethical.

    Vintage jewelry is something we can talk about for days. Since the subject is that big and has multiple aspects to discuss, we’d like to focus on the most important parts of it. Let’s define what the vintage jewelry is, why it’s so appealing and how to buy your 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 called vintage.

    This time frame is comprised of  Art Deco , Retro and styles Mid-Century

    Why do we love vintage jewelry so much? It’s all about the quality of making and – of course – the look.

    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.

    How to shop your vintage jewelry online? Ask questions about 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 are happened to be in 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.
