nOir Jewelry

POW! Ring in gold



Leeora Catalan, creator of influential and visionary accessories design house nOir, started her career at Ralph Lauren and Oscar De La Renta before making a name for herself as a fashion stylist. A void in the market challenged Catalan to create specific pieces for a fashion show she was styling, and it was these first designs that were ordered onsite by a department store and pulled in by Italian Vogue to shoot. Right then, in 1995, nOir was born in her studio apartment she shared with her business partner, and now husband.

nOir has grabbed the attention of style makers such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Madonna, Fergie, Beyonce, and Gwen Stefani, a testimony to Leeora Catalan's alluring designs.We are thrilled to bring some of that bling home to you!
