Frederic Duclos is an award winning French jewelry designer who has been working from his California studio since 1984.
Surrounded and nurtured by the beautiful French countryside, Frederic Duclos developed an early admiration for art and sculpture. For several generations, his family has been designing couture accessories, so it was natural for him to continue the tradition.
After completing graduate studies in Paris, he was immediately drawn by the allure of jewelry design to become a designer himself. Soon after, he moved to California where he met his wife and business partner.
"As I design a piece of jewelry, I envision a woman wearing it. Her face, silhouette, and personality reflect the statement I am trying to achieve. My jewelry is meant to be worn and enjoyed everyday and to become an integral part of the wearer", says Duclos.
Quality designs and effortless care define Duclos' talents. His jewelry is rhodium plated and maintenance free. It is appropriate with casual wear and in sophisticated, formal environments. Women see this jewelry and purchase it for themselves because they desire it.
