Founded by Solomon Freirich, the French-American company Freirich existed from 1922 to 1990. Initially, the main focus was the manufacture of accessories for clothing and hats (including for Chanel and Dior). However, in the 1960s, the company launched a line of handmade jewelry, distinguished by high quality workmanship.
According to sources, son of Solomon Freirich, Arthur joined the company in 1955 and greatly expanded the manufacture of costume jewelry. Father and son immediately decided that they did not need much, they needed everything. However, keeping up with the titan volumes of the American bij-production was almost impossible. Accordingly, the Freirichs relied on the uniqueness of their jewelry, while the majority of large companies tried to reduce the cost of production, using automatic machines and conveyors. But the Freirichs continued making jewelery manually. The craftsmen carefully assembled “multi-component” necklaces and bracelets, fused the cloisonne and chamfered enamels on brooches and pendants, manually fixed jewelery-cut crystals.

In fact, it was Arthur who began to produce jewelry in the Victorian style. Moreover, costume jewelry obtained so high quality that many people confused it with products truly created in the XIX century.
