What makes Frederic Owen Fine Jewelry unique? Our passion for creating original designs.
Weather you choose from our finished jewelry or we custom design together, our team of artisans work in the heart of NYC to fabricate your jewelry with exclusivity (unlike ordering from a catalogue). We pride ourselves on our local production allowing us to make jewelry timely with exceptional prices that will make your heart, mind and soul happy.
My love for drawing as a child led me to Mason Gross School of Visual Arts where I sculpted, sketched and painted. All along the way I worked in my family jewelry business. I attended the Gemological Institute of America in Santa Monica, California to earn my Graduate Jeweler Gemologist certification. I studied diamonds, gems, and manufacturing all merged with drawing. I’m inspired by the elements of nature, texture, fashion, and color. Traveling the Italian coast and studying art history made me appreciate and grow my attention to fine stylistic detail. I furthered my education, exposure, and drawing skills at the NYC Fashion Institute of Technology. Turning your vision into a piece of jewelry that is wearable is the best part…and working with my beautiful wife!
Some of my most significant memories are growing up in the back room of my grandparent’s jewelry store while my father worked as a goldsmith and diamond setter. As soon as I was old enough, I was showing jewelry to customers with my grandmother over my shoulder. I later began expressing my artistry through my love of styling hair and applying makeup. I honed business knowledge through a bachelors from St John Fisher College. With an affinity for the beauty industry I came to Buffalo to study cosmetology at Leon’s Studio One School of Hair Design. My creativity blossomed to motivate a start of my own salon business later leading me to my partner Mark. We began collaborating and designing jewelry together bringing me back to my roots and Frederic Owen was born (also our 2 son’s)!
I am an Accredited Jewelry Professional of the Gemological Institute of America and I am working towards my Graduate Jeweler Gemologist (GIA) diploma.
