    Fred: Fred Samuel founded the Parisian firm, Fred, in 1936. Pearls and large colored gemstone sales were the foundation of the business. Fred catered to A-list celebrities such as Marlene Dietrich and Douglas Fairbanks. With sons Henri and Jean joining the family business, great expansion on an international scale occurred. By 1977, Fred operated boutiques in Beverly Hills, Houston and New York. Geneva, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Cannes, Monte Carlo, and Seoul shops followed.
