For eighty-five years, the Maison FRED has embodied boldness and joie de vivre. True to the avant-garde spirit of its founder, Fred Samuel, the eminent Parisian jeweller has made its mark thanks to its vision of a lifestyle encompassing laid-back elegance, with collections inspired by light and the sea.
