I looked on the net for the NR mark and found that it was used by Nina Ricci and on early Avon jewelry. The NR on the Avon items was apparently always used with the name Avon on the piece. It looks too good to be Avon so could it be something else? It measures 3" by 2 3/4" and has a solid clasp on the back. Any ideas on the mark? Thanks RER BOB

    Could it be Nancy & Rise (New York)?

    It is beautiful! I agree, it does look to good to be Avon. I also have quite a few pieces marked NR, but are way to nice to be Avon : ) Also, like yours... mine are not signed by Avon, but just NR. So, maybe we are on to something here. I just always assumed Avon because all research pointed that way. I will also do some further research.
