About Piaget brand
Piaget is a Swiss jeweler and watchmaker with one and a half century long history. The first jewelry collection by Piaget was introduced in 1959. That year the designer also opened a boutique in Geneva called “Salon Piaget”. The place soon became a club for the jewelry afficionados. The success of the first boutique inspired Piaget to set up other jewelry salons which brought the brand’s jewelry making to the next level. Staying in touch with the salons’ clients, Piaget jewelers responded to their requests and mastered their artistry. Today the House belongs to the world’s top jewelry makers. It handles each step of production in-house, including goldsmithing and gem-setting.
As a watchmaker, Piaget is famous for unexpected design combined with high-end quality and artistic approach. One of the Piaget’s records is the world thinnest watch ever made with the case only 2 millimeters thick.
Women’s watches by Piaget are exquisite jewelry pieces that precisely tell time. While they come in different forms, from ultra-sleek white gold cases to rose gold mesh bracelets, the Piaget’s expertise and excellence remains the same.
About vintage jewelry
Vintage jewelry is something we can talk about for days. For such a big subject with the multiple aspects to discuss, here we’d like to focus on the most important parts of it.
So, what is vintage jewelry? Why it’s so appealing? And what’s the best way 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 comprises of Art Deco, Retro 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.
