A Mother’s Day Photo flashback

By Constance on April 25, 2016 at 3:48 pm

 

For this upcoming Mother’s Day, we take a moment to walk down memory lane with photos of us with our favorite fashion icon and superhero–  Mom.

Happy Mother’s day to all the Moms of BN! Enjoy the rest of the throwbacks our intrepid staff members managed to dig up…

 

My mom is so young and cheeky in this photo! Check out that shiny long 70’s hair and simple gold headband. Too cute. –Coco, photographer

 

Mother’s day

 

 

“Here is one of my favorites of my mom and I. She’s super 80’s at the beach, I am making a doofus face that is exactly like my uncle’s.” –Anna Bario, founder and jeweler

 

Bario Neal Mother's Day Flashback

 

 

“Okay gotta give credit for all the leading ladies in my life who have always gone above and beyond for me. Below is my Mom, the blondie with eyes closed, Aunt Mary Page in a sweet velour track suit, Grandma Mickey with some killer glasses, my bro John, cousin Ben. I am the one with really dirty sneakers and an unfortunate bowl cut.”  –Page Neal, founder and jeweler

“It seems like my mom was more keen on documenting the fam, because I found way more pictures of my brother and me with our dad, but I was able to track down one of me and mum in a kayak!” –Katie Dannenberg, Jeweler

 

Bario Neal Mother's Day Flashback

 

 

“Here is my mom, being fashionable with a multi-layered bangle and wedding bands on her left hand.  I also think she is solely responsible for the red bow on my head.” –Emily Cobb, Jeweler

“My mom the Tyler student. From left to right: Grandma, me, mom, big sister. Back row: mom’s homework, chairs in charcoal.” –Sara Reckhan, Customer Service Manager

 

Bario Neal Mother's Day Flashback

 

These fashionable, intelligent women are the breadwinners, beach babes, boaters, art students and super-human caregivers that made us who we are today. We are your biggest fans; and as many of us go on to become mothers ourselves, (a third of our staff are moms), know how much you mean to all the generations to come.

Linder Necklace

 

On the twelfth and final day of our 12 Days of Gifts Celebration, we had to send in our new star player to bring it all home: the unisex Mortar pendant necklace we made with Linder NYC. A subversion of your typical necklace design, where an inverted clasp, with a surprising pop of earthy modern colors, becomes the focal point. Pair this colorful, bolo-tie-esque necklace with a button down for the office then with your jumpsuit for the office holiday party (then on to the after-party).

12 Days of Gifts: Limited Edition Cluster Gemstone Engagement Rings

By Constance on December 12, 2015 at 2:22 pm

Cluster Rings

No Twelve Days of Christmas would be the same without the five golden rings, so for the 5th day of gifts we are very excited to celebrate our Limited Edition Cluster Rings. We love gemstone engagement rings and these are two very special– they are both the only ones out there and ready to come home for the Holidays.

 

Limited Edition Gemstone rings for the Holidays 2015. Pariaba and Opal Cluster, Garnet asymmetrical avens, Andalucite cluster rings

Limited Edition Gemstone Cluster engagement rings for a special holiday proposal.

 

First up is a rare Paraiba Cluster Ring. This ring is truly a one-of-a-kind! Sure it looks beautiful here, but believe us when we say no photograph does it justice. This gemstone is one of the most precious and valuable in the world, and with one glance, it is easy to see just why. Glowing from within, this paraiba tourmaline is an almost electric shade of aqua, set above a small emerald-cut apricot sapphire and a .1ct diamond, in 14kt gold.

 

Limited Edition Gemstone

The Paraiba gemstone is one of the most precious and rare, even moreso for its ethical origins.

 

Next up, our Opal Cluster Ring features a similar design, set with complimentary-colored gemstones to bring out the natural swirling beauty of an ethically-sourced Australian opal. Also one-of-a-kind, this 14k rose gold ring is available in size 5.75.

PROMO_LE_gemstone_rings_web-

The Opal Three Stone Cluster Ring pairs an iridescent opal with apricot and raspberry sapphires.

 

Drooling yet? Good news: these are ready to ship, so if you were hoping to gift or propose with a gorgeous gemstone engagement ring this Christmas, but missed our deadline for fine jewelry orders (bad news: as of today, we can no longer accept even rush orders for Holiday production of rings and bands), just order by 12/23 to have under the tree.  Or right now, because after these limited edition rings are gone, that’s it.

 

Fine jewelry bands and rings are not included in the Holiday sale. Please contact for details to see if this ring can be adjusted to your desired ring size.
