Member Spotlight

Barbara OliverBarbara Oliver
Profession: Jeweler

Barbara decided she wanted to be a jeweler when she was 9 years old and all her friends were reading Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, she was reading about diamonds and gemstones. She has always been fascinated how nature formed all those different minerals and crystals. It has been a love affair ever since. At age 35, after many years spent in jewelry sales, she figured out what she wanted to be when she grew up and went back to school to become a graduate gemologist.

Barbara Oliver & Co. Jewelry offers a jewelry-buying experience like no other- they call it the "Fabulous Shopping Experience!" They have an exquisite array of jewelry for your consideration, but if you have something extra special in mind and don't see it in our shop, they'll get it for you.

Barbara joined BNC to gain enrichment from great minds of great ladies.
