About the designer, Frederic Duclos Frederic Duclos Frederic Duclos is an award winning French designer of contemporary sterling and sterling and 14 karat combinations of jewelry and gifts. The Company was created under the guidance of Karen and Frederic 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 30 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. Writes Frederic - 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 goal is to capture the fundamental qualities of a woman's features, and complement them with refined embellishments. The best tribute I receive is when I meet a woman who is wearing one of my creations. I constantly strive to create beautiful objects for individual enjoyment.

THEHOPE DIAMOND


Mysterious, infamous, magnificent, cursed, exciting,

the most famous diamond ever.  

As legend goes it was plucked from the eye of an idol

in India in the 17th Century by a thief that was later murdered for it.

Held by Tavernier until sold to the King of France, Louis the XV for an enormous amount of gold. Passed to King Louis XVI and Marie Antoniette, we all know that outcome.   To King George IV, who lost it to pay off tremendous debt.  To Henry Phillip Hope, it's namesake

who had no heirs.  Passed to his eldest nephew

Henry Thomas Hope who sold it pay off gambling debts.

Then to Evalyn Walsh McClean by way of Cartier who had

now fashioned it into the incredible necklace it is today.

She never took it off and the curse continued, with the death of her eldest son, in a car accident, her daughter committed suicide at 25, and her dear husband declared insane.  Sold in 1949 to Harry Winston, again to pay off debt, it was donated to the Smithsonian Institute where it is now displayed.  I personally photographed it and it appeared as a flash of light, from every angle I shot. I do believe it has magical power.
