Bario-Neal jewelry is handcrafted in Philadelphia with reclaimed precious metals, ethically-sourced stones, and low-impact, environmentally conscious practices. Bario-Neal is the collaborative work of designers Anna Bario and Page Neal. Bario-Neal promotes transparency, fair trade initiatives, and the development of third party certification systems for ethical jewelry.
Anna Bario and Page Neal started Bario-Neal in 2007 as a jewelry company focused on ethical materials and positive impacts, with strong designs and custom services. Page and Anna handcraft every piece to order, so they can help clients choose from the Bario-Neal collections or work directly with clients to design a custom piece of jewelry. Through sketches, photographs, and computer generated design, Anna and Page are able to work with clients from all over the world with a guarantee that the final design will reflect the clients' vision.
Bario-Neal works in silver, gold, palladium, and platinum; as well as diamonds and colored gemstones. Bario-Neal offers ready-made collections of casual necklaces, earrings and bracelets, as well as collections of commitment bands and engagement rings. All their work is customizable and available in a range of metals and dimensions. Page & Anna specialize in custom design work and also remake heirloom pieces.
Metals: Bario-Neal uses 100% reclaimed precious metals whenever possible, derived from recycled jewelry or industrial materials.
Diamonds: Bario-Neal uses conflict-free diamonds from Canada, Namibia and other sources. These diamonds are responsibly mined, cut and polished. We also work with recycled diamonds: stones initially introduced into the jewelry supply chain for sale to the consumer and then re-sold to a jeweler, refiner or other agent. The diamonds are then cleaned, graded and re-introduced into the supply chain as recycled diamonds.
Gems: Bario-Neal offers ethically sourced gemstones that are closely tracked from mine to market. This ensures that every gem has been handled according to strict environmental, labor, health, and safety protocols, and has been handled in a tight chain of custody which eliminates the possibility for treated or synthetic gems to be introduced into the supply chain.
Community: Bario-Neal works with specialized craftspeople on Philadelphia's historic Jeweler's Row to hand-make many of its pieces. Composed of nearly 300 small, family-owned businesses, Jeweler's Row is home to the oldest jewelry district in America and continues to thrive as a creative and manufacturing hub in the industry.
Studio Practices: Bario-Neal uses low-impact, environmentally conscious studio practices to lessen our footprint.
