Even if you’re not familiar with the name, you’ve likely worn a piece of jewelry produced by Barse. Every jewelry department at Dillard’s and Nordstrom carries a wide selection of the sterling silver pieces, but if you want the full-on Barse experience, you must go to one of the two storefronts. Each boutique feels more like an exhibition space than a simple boutique, with beautifully lit wood-framed cubby holes holding red coral necklaces, lime turquoise earrings, and agate cluster bracelets like precious art. And rightly so, as designer Melanie Barse Gobril is the great-niece of American painter George Randolph Barse, whose art hangs in the Library of Congress.
