About estate jewelry
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 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 all the things 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 it at the fullest.
About Boucheron brand
From serving the Royal families all over the world in 19th century to making the sought-after jewelry pieces nowadays, Boucheron house did it all. Today the brand keeps its leading position in the luxury jewelry strong.
A balanced mixture of traditions and creativity has been making Boucheron jewelry highly desirable throughout the time. For instance, one of the most recent pieces, a necklace from Goutte de Ciel (Drop of Sky) collection. It’s a white gold and diamond necklace that features an exquisite ice-blue pendant made of Aerogel. It’s a material that was previously only used by NASA. The idea behind the piece was to capture the purity of the sky and translate it into a jewelry piece.
As to vintage Boucheron jewelry, it definitely carries the influence of French Classicism era.
Being raised by the family of drapers, Frédéric Boucheron, the Maison’s founder, brought the pliancy of silk and laces into the goldsmith process. That concept is easy to see in the airy looking Boucheron Bombé ring or famous Boucheron bird brooches.
At Nadine Krakov Collection we carry both modern and vintage Boucheron pieces that you can shop here.
