The history of Canadian jewelry trademark “FAF” began in August 1987. Based in 4710 Rue Saint-Ambroise, Montreal, Québec, jewelry company “Le Groupe Fafard-Goualt Inc”. was active for five years. According to sources, Diane Fafard worked in partnership with Alain Goualt, and their company worked until 1990. A few years later Diane Fafard (born in 1951) founded “FAF Design” in 1993. Already in 1997 she became the finalist of the 1997 Quebec Golden Designer Jewelry Award. “FAF Design” ceased to exist in 2013.
