Looking for something unique and elegant? Look no further. We at Parker Jewelers are proud to carry Nicole Barr, a company that has been creating fine enamel jewelry since 1982. Featured in INSTORE magazine, Nicole Barr jewelry is handcrafted and overseen from design to enameling, to the setting of fine quality gemstones and diamonds. Like Faberge and Lalique, the line features vitreous enamel applied to Sterling Silver in several different techniques. Nicole Barr specializes in a technique called plique-à-jour, in which the enamel is suspended between delicate wires of silver or gold without a backing- giving the pieces a stained glass window type appearance, where the light can shine through. They have two other techniques: Champlevé and Basse Taille. Each piece is hand-painted and fired, with each color firing differently so each has to be applied one at a time; this level of craftsmanship means that each piece can take several weeks to complete. If you're one who values time and artistry, this line is made just for you!
