The history of French costume jewelry marked “Barol” began in June 1985, when Fernand Barol (born on October 28, 1935) founded his limited liability company. He opened his jewelry shop Les Bijoux Barol at 21 Rue Tronchet, 75008 Paris.
Initially, he handcrafted gorgeous runaway fashion jewelry – large dangling earrings, brooches, pendants, necklaces and bracelets. Traditionally, the jeweler used high quality metal alloys of gold tone, as well as gold plating, art glass, mother-of-pearl, and rhinestones. The marking on the back side of each item includes “Barol Paris” on a rectangular cartouche.
Noteworthy, Barol created costume jewelry mostly in the 1980-90s, following the trends of Parisian fashion shows of famous couturiers. Large gold-tone jewelry complemented any dress, shoes, gloves, a hat, etc. Made for a short period in limited quantities, his statement jewelry is rare and collectible.
Wholesale jeweler, in addition to buying and selling fashion accessories, he was engaged in other business. Fernand Barol ran his businesses for about 40 years until his retirement. When Barol was 80 years old, his company ceased to exist (2015). According to sources, due to the bankruptcy.
