This has been a very exciting year for Huntington Beach, CA-based jewelry manufacturer Frederic Duclos. Owners Karen and Frederic Duclos have been specializing in sterling silver jewelry since the mid-80s, and 2014 marks their 30th year in business.
In March Frederic Duclos redesigned their website, www.fredericduclos.com, to be mobile friendly and also to include a new Look Book.
In April, it was announced that Frederic Duclos won first place in two separate categories of the Jewelersâ€™ Choice Awards for 2014. For his outstanding sterling silver swoosh necklace accented with blue topaz stones, he won first place in the Silver Under $500 retail category. For his creative use of sterling wire and gold plated accents, he won first place in the Fashion Under $500 retail category.
â€śIt just adds to our truly euphoric feeling. Milestones need to be marked and this one was very special,â€ť said Frederic.
Capping off their accomplishments year to date is the recent release of their most comprehensive catalog, Edition 42.
Reflecting on the companyâ€™s beginning, Karen Duclos stated: â€śAt that time, very few fine jewelry stores had developed sterling silver jewelry departments. In fact, we were selling to accessory and high end gift boutiques. Now the market has changed and the jewelry stores embrace us; so much so that we were voted among the top best-selling lines for independent jewelers in 2013.â€ť
Frederic evolves his design and updates his collection twice a year with more than 200 new designs.
Frederic Duclos will be showing at the Atlanta Jewelry Show August 9-11 in booth #PV23. To set up an appointment, for more information or to request a copy of the new catalog, call 866-898-3636 or visit www.fredericduclos.com.
