Nicole Barr At Andre Noir

Nicole Barr is committed to high-quality craftsmanship by combining the skill-set from artisans, professional jewellers and master enamellers.

The team oversees each piece of jewellery from design, enamelling, to the setting of the finest gemstones and diamonds.

In the tradition of artists like Fabergé and Lalique. Nicole Barr’s master enamellers only use true vitreous enamel (hard fired glass) which is painstakingly applied by hand to 18ct gold and silver, complemented with diamonds and gemstones.

To achieve this task, the master enamellers use 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.
