The "Pamela Froman Fine Jewelry Collection" features handmade pieces comprised of a mixture of colored precious metals and exquisite, rare natural stones. Originality and meticulous attention to every detail are hallmarks of Pamela's signature look; because each item is handmade, no two will ever be identical, even if they are similar in design. This one-of-a-kind, limited edition jewelry is as hip as it is timeless, transcending every generation and age, and specially crafted so that it may be treasured for years to come.
Born and raised in Manhattan by her mother, Ann Froman the well-known sculptor and designer, Pamela graduated from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology and subsequently moved to Europe, where she settled in Paris and began designing jewelry for the top couturier salons, including Courreges, Cacharel, Carita, Guy Larouche, and Valentino. As much as she enjoyed the challenge of creating for preeminent designers, Pamela needed to forge her own artistic path.
The initial "Pamela Froman Fine Jewelry Collection" was launched in 2003. The collection combines classic European design elements with Pamela's own unique sensibility. "I love irregular surfaces," the designer explains, "so most of my Collection is textured with a special hand-hammering technique I call Crushed. In fact, the cornerstone of my first line was The Mina Ring, a Crushed mélange of Platinum and 18k yellow gold with diamonds, that was designed for an actress who wanted something distinctive and elegant." Soon after launching her first collection, Pamela was selected to be the featured jeweler on Tyra Banks' highly visible reality series, "America's Next Top Model." She has since been the subject of articles and editorials in magazines such as Los Angeles Magazine, Trendz, Angeleno, InStore, and Inside Weddings. In the 2005-2006 season, her jewelry once again graced the small screen, this time adorning Vanessa Marcil, Cheryl Ladd, and Molly Sims, the sexy stars of NBC's hit drama "Las Vegas".
Pamela feels strongly that individuality is the underlying theme of beauty. "I believe that the more a piece is worn the more beautiful it is because it becomes part of the person's essence. Two people can wear the same piece and it will have a different look or give off a different aura. My mission is to create handmade jewelry of the highest quality, therefore each piece is thoughtfully designed with 22k, Platinum or an array of different colored 18k gold, so that everything from the cut, the color, and even the clarity of the stones flow seamlessly to complement the overall look of the design. I like to think that if my jewelry were someday discovered in an old buried treasure chest, it would stand the test of time, much like the antiquities of the great civilizations do today."
