New York--Born and raised in Manhattan, Pamela Froman graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York before settling in Paris to design jewelry for top couturier salons.
She eventually decided to strike out on her own, creating a signature look for her brand that combines classic European design elements with her own unique sensibility, and combining different colors of 18-karat gold, 22-karat gold and platinum.
“I love irregular surfaces, so most of my collection is textured with a special technique I call crushed,” Froman said about her hand-hammering technique. “My mission is to create collectible works of art that will be worn--not locked away in a safe--passed down and appreciated for generations.”
Froman’s fine jewelry collection features pieces made with rare natural stones that she hand-selects, often offset with diamond pavé or other smaller gemstone accents.
