    About Cartier Brand

    Since 1847, Timeless Excellence has been Cartier’s second name. The brand’s story begins when Louis-François Cartier took over the workshop of his master, Adolphe Picard, in Paris. Initially, Cartier focused on creating high-quality jewelry and watches. His dedication to excellence and attention to detail quickly earned him a reputation among the elite clientele of Paris.

    Even higher quality standards of the Cartier jewelry were set in 1902 by King George VII. That year Cartier made 27 tiaras for the coronation and was officially announced as the crown’s jewels seller. Since then, Cartier was proclaimed as “king of jewelry, the jeweler of kings.” The maker still lives up to this statement.

    The Cartier legacy endured through the generations, with each family member contributing to the brand’s global success. However, in 1964, the Cartier family decided to sell the business. The company changed hands several times but continued to maintain its commitment to quality and innovation. Today, Cartier is part of the Richemont Group, a leading luxury goods conglomerate.

    Compared to other famous luxury jewelry brands, such as Van Cleef & Arpels or Tiffany & Co. who are working with precious stones a lot, Cartier is strictly focusing on diamonds and pieces made of different hues of gold.

    Over the time Cartier created a great number of the truly iconic pieces. From a classic Cartier Love bracelet to the famous Cartier Panther collection and Cartier Trinity, without mentioning a wide variety of Cartier watches — you name it. But our hearts belong to the vintage Cartier jewelry. We appreciate the uniqueness and craftsmanship of our estate pieces. Each of them has a timeless character and tells the most fascinating stories.

    The exquisite quality of the Cartier pieces is unquestionable. The Maison continuously keeps creativity, innovative spirit and loyalty to traditions running on the highest level possible. Either you are purchasing a Cartier diamond ring or any other jewelry by Cartier, you are becoming an owner of a symbol of Timeless Excellence.

    About Estate Jewelry 

    Purchasing estate jewelry is an excellent way to buy high-quality pieces at a fair price. Those who appreciate classic or one-of-a-kind pieces prefer purchasing estate jewelry for a wide range of styles and historical influences. 

    Buying jewelry online can be challenging. The quality of the making has not got 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 era 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 a truly quality piece. 

    Fair price 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 piece have a significant price difference. Ask your local jewelry store about the retail price of the desired piece and you’d be pleasantly surprised. 

    True value vs Seasonal rush

    Pre-owned jewelry retains its value as over time it gets unique and sought-after. Think purchasing a new car that loses its value right after you left your dealer versus buying a vintage vehicle. 

    At the Nadine Krakov Collection we are in love with all things beautiful. Each of our estate jewelry pieces is in excellent condition. We preserve the history and the greatest styles of the past so our clients can enjoy it at the fullest.
