Frederic Duclos is an award winning French designer of
contemporary sterling andsterling
and 14 karat combinations of jewelry and gifts. The
Company was created under the guidance of Karen andFrederic
Duclos in 1984.
Frederic Duclos is originally from Southeastern France,
where for several generations, his family has been
designing accessories. His upbringing cultivated an
admiration for art and sculpture. In his mind, sculpture
was limitless, but controlling size and balance to
create individual jewelry pieces became his passion.
After completing studies in Paris, he was immediately
drawn into the allure of jewelry design. His last year
of college brought him to California, where he was
introduced to Karen by a mutual friend.
Karen, at eighteen and a junior at the University of
California, had started a wholesale jewelry and
accessories business. She soon discovered a niche for
designer sterling jewelry.
After meeting Frederic, they decided that there was a
market demand for high quality, creative sterling
jewelry. For 25 years, Frederic has presented
collections that reflect sensuality and femininity with
a twist of reality. The numerous awards he has received
throughout the years always encourages him to create
fresh, new concepts.
