Nicole Barr jewelry is a rare example of the Art of Enameling. What is enamel? True vitreous enamel as used in each jewelry piece is the beautiful fusion of fired glass with sterling silver, resulting in a lustrous color that will never change. Enamel is our passion! A passion that has required real commitment from the day we started as a small jewelry company in 1982. Nicole Barr is known for our quality of workmanship -- which we patiently oversee from design, to enameling, to the setting of the finest gemstones and diamonds. In the tradition of artists like Faberge and Lalique, Nicole Barr uses true vitreous enamel (hard fired glass) painstakingly applied by hand to 18 K gold and silver – complemented with diamonds and gemstones. We specialize in a difficult technique called plique-á-jour, where the enamel is suspended between delicate wires of silver or gold without a backing, allowing the light to shine through.
