Bario Neal began as the collaborative work of designers Anna Bario and Page Neal. Anna and Page began working together with the shared idea that our most precious things come with a story. Drawn to the imaginative possibilities of jewelry, yet disillusioned by industry standards that turned a blind eye to metal and gemstone mining’s environmental and human tolls, the designers began to envision how to make jewelry of lasting value and ethical origins.
In 2008, Anna and Page launched Bario Neal as a design-forward, women-owned and feminist company. Today, Bario Neal is an industry leader in ethical sourcing and progressive manufacturing, known for its design sensibility and high-quality, handcrafted work. A belief in the right to love and marry whoever and however you choose is one of the core principles of Bario Neal’s jewelry.
Whether it is a custom diamond ring or a pendant from the collections, each piece is designed in-house and handcrafted with reclaimed precious metals, Fairmined gold, and ethically sourced stones. The Bario Neal team works extensively with a local community of craftspeople on Philadelphia’s historic Jeweler’s Row — the oldest jewelry district in the United States — to apply specialized techniques such as hand engraving or glass enameling.
When visiting Bario Neal Philadelphia or the New York showroom, you will find an atmosphere unlike any other jewelry shop. The Philadelphia flagship doubles as both a production workshop and retail space, where a diverse group of skilled jewelers work next to the collection displays. The knowledgeable sales and design crew are thoughtful, approachable and trained to help customers realize their vision, whether through a custom design or an item from one of Bario Neal’s acclaimed collections.
Bario Neal is designing an ethical way forward for the jewelry industry, one handmade piece at a time. Explore our online shop, New York showroom or Philadelphia workshop and become part of the story.
