FRED is celebrating love and dedicating to it a major collection of both jewelry and high jewelry: ‘Pretty Woman’. A name which evokes a vivid memory for the House: “When our Rodeo Drive boutique in Beverley Hills received a visit in 1990 from the production team of the film ‘Pretty Woman’, at the time seeking a jewelry piece for its leading actress, we had no idea that the necklace of hearts set with diamonds and rubies they chose would become a special part of the movie, thanks to Julia Roberts’ legendary burst of laughter and Richard Gere’s elegance. So naturally, we named it Pretty Woman. Since then, the Pretty Woman collection has remained part of the Maison, a symbol of love reinterpreted over the years”, explains Valérie Samuel, Vice-President and Artistic Director of FRED.
Today, at a time when love has acquired such personal significance for each of us, FRED draws inspiration from this iconic necklace to make its new Pretty Woman collection a modern expression of love’s many different facets under the precept ‘your way your love’.
This vision is captured in a distinctive aesthetic, ‘the heart within a heart’, as well as by a mindset imbued with the FRED’s typical joie de vivre and sense of freedom: the freedom that comes from a style of high jewelry you can wear every day, the freedom to change your jewelry as your mood dictates, to vary your look by mixing and matching, or from the endlessly different ways the pieces can be worn. And, ultimately, the freedom to be and to love, with a love that is joyful, unconditional, daring, secret, dazzling and eternal: your way your love…

If you prefer not to print, measure the internal diameter of your ring and use the chart below to determine your size. For example if the internal diameter of your ring is 16.24 mm, it is a ring of size 51.

Symbol of love par excellence, the diamond is one of the favourite stones of the Maison FRED. White or coloured, 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 jeweller'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:
- The GIA (Gemological Institute of America)
- The HRD (Hoge Raad Voor Diamond)
These organizations ensure that the diamonds meet the quality standards required by Maison FRED.
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.
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 âflawlessâ 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.
The whiter a diamond is, the rarer and more precious it is. The colors of FRED diamonds are exclusively between D and G.
The unit of measurement for diamonds is the carat. One carat corresponds to 0.2 grams. The weight of the diamond combined with its size, colour and clarity determines its value.
