Famous Parisian jewelry house Fred is often compared to the world’s best jewelry houses. Fred Samuel was a master of colored stones who seduced his clients with the chic lifestyle of the French Riviera at its peak. Opening his first jewelry shop in Paris in 1936, the jeweler became famous by transforming original drawings by Jean Cocteau into glowing jewels, garnering celebrity and royal clients around the world.
Inspired by the freedom of the sea, and the colors and textures of the Côte d’Azur, today the brand’s modern ingenuity remains in the spotlight with colorful and unique jewels featuring exceptional stones.
Its unique teardrop-cut diamond is the modern symbol of eternal love.
