The name Pain de Sucre, or “Sugarloaf”, evokes visions of delicious delicacies and exotic destinations. Yet the term, which here denotes a collection, refers primarily to a specific gem-cutting that underlines FRED’s gift for revealing the beauty in precious stones. Such expertise in the art of faceting and subtly shaping these stones unleashes the beauty and brilliance of their colours in a rainbow of different shades. Cultivating the natural radiance found in gems and other materials, Pain de Sucre summons up a procession of amethysts, pink quartz, topazes and numerous other stones, each outdoing the last in their allure.
Since its cabochons are interchangeable, the wearer can tailor the piece to match their mood or their desires and they will change according to the variations of sunlight and brightness, further enriching the palette of possibilities. Ample scope to reflect the wildest of whims on the spur of the moment.
The Pain de Sucre collection sparkles, much like Brazil itself at the heart of Fred Samuel’s beloved Latin America, an infinite source of extraordinary experiences.
