The know-how of Maison FRED

QUALITY

Symbol of love par excellence, the diamond is one of the favorite stones of the Maison FRED. White or colored, it has always been at the heart of our most precious creations. On engagement rings or wedding rings, the diamond naturally finds a place of choice.

Each stone is rigorously selected according to the famous 4C rule: Cut for the cut, Color for its hue, Carat for its weight and Clarity for its purity. A universal jeweler’s language reinforced by techniques of embellishment and work on the stones such as setting or paving. For the brilliant cut from 0.30ct and for the other cuts from 0.50 carat, the central diamond set on FRED mounts is accompanied by a certificate issued by one of the following international reference laboratories: br />
- The GIA (Gemological Institute of America)
- The HRD (Hoge Raad Voor Diamant)

These organizations ensure that the diamonds meet the quality standards required by Maison FRED.









CUT

The cut of the stone determines its brilliance. Only a perfectly proportioned cut gives the diamond its optimum brilliance. In order to always offer stones respecting this criterion of excellence, Maison FRED makes a strict selection of its diamonds.







CLARITY

The purity of a diamond is defined by the number, type, size and position of inclusions present in the stone. Like any natural stone, almost all diamonds contain inclusions.

A diamond is considered to be “flawless” if there are no inclusions if it contains no visible flaws when magnified 10 times. Maison FRED only selects stones with a degree of purity between IF and VS2, which is the guarantee of an exceptional clarity and a lack of inclusions visible to the naked eye.










COLOR

The whiter a diamond is, the rarer and more precious it is. The colors of FRED diamonds are exclusively between D and G.

THE BLACK DIAMOND

In order to obtain a homogeneous colour and a beautiful brilliance, the black diamonds used for our FRED creations have been embellished. This treatment by irradiation, common for black diamonds used in jewellery, does not produce any risk for the person wearing them.










CARAT

The whiter a diamond is, the rarer and more precious it is. The colors of FRED diamonds are exclusively between D and G.
