“I should have been born a fish,” Fred Samuels, founder of the jewellery house Fred, once said. Inspired by this oft-uttered phrase of its founder, the jewellery brand turns to the sea for its latest collection. Titled ‘Une Île d’Or’, the phrase translates to “Gold Island” and the jewellery collection evokes the lush imagery of a submerged tropical haven; its pieces shaped after the soft curves of scales and tranquil lapping waves. Beautifully crafted in either white or yellow gold, the ‘Une Île d’Or’ line houses both simple patterned accessories for a minimalist look, and multi layered, diamond-encrusted works for an indulgent night out.
