Care and Maintenance

FRED carefully selects and creates each piece in our collection with the hope you will enjoy it for years to come. In order to keep your piece in good shape, please remember:

- Jewels are delicate and can not stand up to too much impact. Avoid dropping them, or wearing them while you play sports.
- Stones and pearls are sensitive to chemicals, cosmetic products and perfumes.
- Stones can be cleaned with some soapy hot water and a small soft brush or a wet cloth.
- When cleaning your piece, take care to clean each jewel individually to prevent build up between the jewels.

All about diamonds

The central diamond used in FRED settings is certified by one of the four world-renowned jewelry laboratories : The GIA (Gemological Institute of America), the HRD (Hoge Raad Voor Diamont), Antwerp, the CCIP (also known as the French Gemological Laboratory), the IGI (International Gemological Institute). These organizations ensure that the diamonds strictly adhere to the quality standards required by FRED, according to the four diamond criteria, the “4C” : Cut, Clarity, Color and Carat).

CUT
The cut of the stone determines its brilliance and only a perfectly proportioned cut will intensify the diamond’s brilliance. In order to only offer stones which meet this criteria for excellence, FRED only works with master diamond cutters.
CLARITY
The number and size of inclusions present in stone defines the diamond’s purity. Like most natural stones, nearly all diamonds contain some inclusions. A diamond is considered to be «flawless» if it contains no visible flaws when magnified 10 times. FRED only accepts stones of exceptionally high quality, those with a minimum clarity between IF and VS2.
COLOR
The more white the diamond is, the more valuable it becomes. Diamonds selected by FRED have a color classified only between D and H.
CARAT
A diamond’s unit of mesure is the carat. A carat corresponds to 0,2 g. The weight, cut, color and purity together determine the diamond’s value. FRED proposes diamonds from 0,2 carat.
