Rosemarie Bouchard is selective of which jewelry designers she chooses to showcase at her store. These designers must have a unique style and be willing to work with her directly. When making a substantial purchase from a diamond pendant to a perfect engagement ring, Frederic Sage is an excellent choice.
As with most experts, Frederic was exposed to the industry as a child gaining first hand knowledge from his father, Morris. Morris has been an expert in importing precious gemstones for over 40 years and works with the Sage brand when sourcing gemstones. I asked Rose Bouchard, owner of Tysons Watch & Jewelry Exchange, what makes Frederic stand out amongst other designers? Rose stated “Frederic is passionate about designing a mounting to showcase the beauty of his gemstones.” One of his signature designs is showcased below with the beautiful Honeycomb Pattern in this sapphire diamond ring.
The Frederic Sage brand offers clients the ability to customize their own pieces.
Frederic Sage pieces are designed in Platinum, 18K or 14K white, rose and yellow gold. In the case of wedding bands, if your engagement ring does not have a matching wedding band, you can custom create a band that would perfectly pair with your ring. Possibilities are endless in the hands of this prestigious group of designers.
Frederic’s flawless attention to detail is due to the fact he is a true artisan. Frederic studied Art History & Textile Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. He then went on to design internationally and domestically for a textile manufacturer. His successful textile designs have given him inspiration to create his exquisite jewelry line.
Frederic went on to travel throughout Europe studying multiple languages and broadening his artistic eye. He saw first-hand how his sources of inspiration could lend itself a window for us to see through his artistic eye. When asked, “do only family members run the business? ” I was told, “Frederic Sage consists of myself, my brother Brian along with my mother Guitty in collaboration with non-family members.” I asked Brian why he enjoyed working with the brand and he replied, “I like being a part of a versatile brand and a company that retailers themselves love so much that they often purchase our items for themselves or come to us to design their engagement rings. It is truly an honor.”
As distributors of the Sage Brand, we can attest to the fact that others within the industry are drawn to the quintessential substance of the Frederic Sage line! Early on Frederic was keen in offering mountings in various color combinations while incorporating rubies and sapphires into his line. It’s this forward-thinking eye that has transcended this line into an elite collection.
Tysons Watch & Jewelry Exchange has happily carried the Frederic Sage line for five years and has a substantial knowledge of the scope of this prestigious brand. Stop by our Leesburg Pike store to see first hand these stunning pieces.
