From Buenos Aires to Paris
Fred Samuel was born in 1908 in Argentina, into a family of Alsatian origin that traded in pearls and stones. In Paris, he trained as a jeweler and introduced the cultured pearl to France. A pearl of a particular creamy pink color even took his name. In 1936, he founded his own company. At the beginning of the war, he enlisted in the Foreign Legion, was taken prisoner, managed to escape and returned to Paris to take over his store. The Vichy government put the yellow star on the front of his store and forced him to remove the name "Samuel" from his sign. He then joined the resistance and took over the Maison Fred at the end of the war. Renowned artists, prestigious locations, exceptional jewels, and original creations make Fred one of the ten greatest jewelers in the world. Colored diamonds were his signature, but it was the woman he never ceased to celebrate that opened the doors of the seventh art to his boutique, now located at 14, rue de la Paix.
The nostalgia of his native country, the passion for the sea, the memory of pearls and stones underlie the creativity of the jeweler who never ceases to capture the light to make it refract in your jewelry. An infinite palette of colors with shimmering reflections and multiple prisms is born from this quest for light. An assortment of models is also emerging, with Fred choosing to be personalized and versatile. Original pieces capture the beauty in shifting associations.
Its craftsmanship of excellence, which masters traditional gestures, continues to be enriched by new techniques with ingenious mechanisms. In 2017, the House won medals and awards thanks to its digital tool "Atelier Fred", which allows the jewel to be personalized through the choice of materials and colors. Between heritage and innovation, artistic heritage and a resolutely forward-looking outlook, the prowess of a house that illustrates itself in expert know-how combined with limitless inventiveness is outlined.
