Frederic Sage's passion for jewelry began when he was exposed to the industry as a child. His father, an importer of precious gemstones for over forty years, passed many years of expertise on to Frederic. He expanded his knowledge in the industry when he attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City where he studied Art History and Textile Design. Upon graduating, he was given the opportunity to design for a leading textile manufacturer. With a unique perspective and an eye for color, Frederic created designs that were distributed both domestically and internationally. During that time, he traveled to over 50 different countries and lived in major cities such as Milan, Paris, Barcelona and Lisbon. He also expanded his already impressive language skills and became fluent in 8 languages. He eventually left a successful career in textiles to pursue his childhood dream of designing and creating fine jewelry. His vast knowledge of the industry makes him a connoisseur in a broad spectrum of jewelry. His collections include natural shell, diamond, and precious gemstone pieces and are a refreshing departure from typical designs.
