Featured in Inside Weddings Jewelry Box - New & Notable Engagement Rings!

Pamela's unique yellow diamond "Ellie" engagement ring was featured in Inside Weddings magazine's Fall 2013 Jewelry Box section which focused on New & Notable Engagement Rings!  What makes this 18kw ring special is the non-traditional 2.06ct icy yellow diamond center, framed by a halo of sparkling gvs diamonds; the curvy "crushed" shank gives the ring a distinctly feminine feel.

Idazzle's conversation with Pamela Froman

idazzle.com - an insider's guide to jewelryJewelry Designer Spotlight: A Conversation with Pamela Froman Fine Jewelry

Pamela Froman is a jewelry designer with her own unapologetically distinctive style. Besides the astonishing gemstones Pamela features, her jewelry is instantly recognizable for its textured finish, which she brands as “Crushed”. The surface is so lush, it begs to be touched.

Pamela has been winning design awards almost since she began designing. Her design aesthetic manages to straddle an old-world-master classic and hip edge, which sounds contradictory, until you see it. Scrolls, definitive and feminine at the same time, repeat and connect in her work. She has developed particular alloys for her gold, which is available in a rainbow of colors: yellow, rose, browns, even black. The gemstones–jaw-dropping–she has cut for her from larger rough that she chooses with deliberation.

The surface of the gold, or the occasional piece in platinum or palladium, employs a hand-hammering that goes beyond a purely surface treatment. When I touch it, I can almost FEEL the goldsmith and the labor and tools. With the satin finish, it makes a distinctive impression that reflects the effort and time to produce it.

Remember when I wore this Pamela Froman Boulder opal, Paraiba and diamond ring in 18kt gold to the Women’s Jewelry Association Gala? Still my favorite piece of Pamela’s!
I caught up with Pamela at a trunk show at Fox’s Gem Shop in Seattle, and had a chance to speak to her about what is new and fascinating in her fine jewelry world.

What are you most excited about lately with Pamela Froman Fine Jewelry?

I’ve been very excited about my new Boulder Opal pieces that debuted recently at the Couture Jewelry Show. I am planning to expand the Boulder Opal, Tanzanite, and Paraiba combinations. These “Caribbean Crush” earrings have been great, and I’m looking to expand the color spectrum on these, into different color stories. Of course, I need to find the gems first, but that’s always fun.

All of your jewelry is made in the U.S., correct?

Yes, it’s all manufactured in Los Angeles, where I’m based.

Tell me about the Platinum Rutile collection, it’s kind of an incredible stone.

I buy all the clean rough my gemstone supplier has, then I have them cut for me. This is how I source a lot of my stones.

I like the one with some brown in it.
Yes, I usually buy the really clean stones, but this one has the soft, beautiful brown in it that I thought worked for the finished piece.

Yes, I love stones with an internal dialogue! What’s next for you?

I need to figure out my entries into the AGTA Spectrum Awards and the [WJA] Diva Design Competition! Probably a Boulder Opal piece!
Pamela is as warm and approachable as the jewelry she eloquently designs. If you have the opportunity to meet her, make sure you do! You can see more of Pamela’s designs at the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group’s website at cjdgjewelers.org, or Like her Facebook page here.

Today's WWD Jewelry Article Features Convertible Pamela Froman Necklace!

Today's issue of WWD includes a fabulous article by Marcy Medina, titled "New Jewelry Design Focus: Versatility" which hi-lights innovative jewels that have been designed to be worn in a variety of ways, enhancing their wearability.  
Screen-shot of August 12, 2013 WWD article

Marcy interviewed Pamela for this article and included a bit of the history behind Pamela's "Mommy Earrings", which she designed when her son Hudson was a baby and needed earrings that he couldn't pull on (unlike the Headlight Hoops that are her go-to style.)  "Mommy Earrings" are essentially beautiful studs (either diamond-studded scrolls or bezel-set gemstones) with enhancers that can dress up the earring for a night out with Daddy.  In the article, Pamela explains the evolution of her versatile designs: "From there, I started doing necklaces with reversible, detachable pendants and offering a range of stones that women could collect." 

I've attached images of a few "Mommy Earring" styles and some of Pamela's versatile Leather Cord Necklaces with interchangeable gemstone or all-gold pendants.

If you have a subscription to WWD, you can read the full article here.  If not, I've at least included a screen shot (at the top of this post) with a few highlights.  The necklace shown in the article is Pamela's 18ky "Hera's Crush" Boulder Opal & Paraiba Pendant on a convertible triple-strand necklace of faceted Apatite beads; this necklace has an 18ky and diamond center element with a hidden loop that folds down to hold a pendant/enhancer but can also be worn alone as a simpler style.  I've attached a larger image below, so you can get a better look at this gorgeous necklace.

Las Vegas--Pamela Froman expanded her signature crushed-gold pieces this year with the new Boulder Crush collection, which features Australian boulder opals paired with vibrant gemstones: tanzanite and Paraiba tourmaline.

Opals, especially boulder opals, still play a major role in her designs, framed in 18-karat crushed yellow, white and pink gold, and accented with tanzanite and Paraiba. Froman’s pieces offer a bold and distinguished look, easily carried over from day to night.
From the new Boulder Crush line, the one-of-a-kind Hera’s Crush pendant in 18-karat yellow crushed gold with an 18.03-carat Australian boulder opal framed by two rows of pavé-set paraiba tourmaline ($20,900) and an 18-karat pink and yellow crushed-gold ring with an Australian boulder opal and diamond pavé ($7,480)

Froman also showcased some of her new bridal pieces at Couture, including the Warm Wedding bridal suite, the Pastel Wedding set and the Rustic Wedding pieces.

The Warm Wedding bridal suite (left) has outer eternity bands in 18-karat pink and yellow crushed gold set with diamonds ($3,190 each) while the solitaire ring features a 1.72-carat fancy brownish-yellow cushion-cut modified brilliant diamond surrounded by pavé diamonds and diamonds on the band (price upon request). The outer bands of the Rustic Wedding stack are 18-karat yellow crushed gold with chocolate rhodium and 18-karat white crushed gold with charcoal rhodium with diamonds ($2,090 each), while the 18-karat crushed-white gold solitaire ring has a 1.03-carat gray diamond surrounded by diamond pavé ($5,280).
