February 2, 2021: FRED, an LVMH-owned jewelry brand, has relaunched a new Pretty Woman collection of jewelry and high jewelry, a tribute to the cult movie. This bold declaration of love features the “heart within a heart” motif in rubellites and diamonds for the high jewelry pieces, and white and pink gold for the jewelry creations.

The iconic ruby and diamond necklace by Fred, which featured in the 1990 movie ‘Pretty Woman’, has become an iconic piece of jewelry. “When our Rodeo Drive boutique in Beverly Hills received a visit in 1990 from the production team of the film Pretty Woman, who were looking for a jewelry piece for the leading actress, we had no idea that the ruby and diamond hearts necklace they chose would become such a special part of the movie, thanks to Julia Roberts’ legendary burst of laughter and Richard Gere’s elegance,” says Valérie Samuel, Vice-President and Artistic Director of FRED.

The iconic necklace was named after the movie that immortalized it and has inspired fresh reinterpretations over the years. With its “Your way, Your love” spirit, the 2021 Pretty Woman collection symbolizes freedom through creativity. It’s high jewelry that can be worn every day, mixing and matching to change looks, and endless ways to wear the pieces. 

The 22 exceptional high jewelry pieces revisit the original necklace with diamonds and rubellites – precious gemstones in the tourmaline family said to open the heart chakra. With a pink magenta hue that morphs to purple depending on the light, rubellite symbolizes the different facets of love.

The star of the collection is the Audacious necklace. With 554 diamonds and eight heart-cut rubellites, the necklace transforms into different jewels with seven detachable hearts that become earrings, a broach, a lapel pin or a sautoir. With its 659 diamonds and 11 rubellites, the Glamourous necklace takes over 340 hours of craftsmanship to complete. The original necklace from the Pretty Woman film has also been reprised in a flow of hearts paved with 992 diamonds, with 17 beating rubellite hearts set inside.
