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).
This silver stunner proves that jewelry doesn’t have to sparkle to make a statement.

Introducing the Bario Neal x Linder NYC Men’s Jewelry Collaboration
Let’s face it, really great man-gifts are hard to find.
Good thing that just in time for the holiday season, the Bario Neal x Linder NYC Jewelry collaboration launches today. This high-concept line, “Mortar” re-imagines men’s jewelry, drawing inspiration from the Linder NYC look, while maintaining the design and craftsmanship of a Bario Neal piece.
Linder NYC is comprised of designers Kirk and Sam, who renovated their Thompson Street store themselves, creating a beautifully minimal and intimate space that frames both the brands they carry and their own line.
When the collection’s main designer, Anna Bario, first sat down with Kirk and Sam of Linder, they talked a lot about “pieces that felt powerful without just being big, and about incorporating color into men’s jewelry, which is pretty uncommon.”
This ethos: a synergy of masculinity + femininity, and innovative use of materials, creates a wholly new picture of men’s jewelry. Earthy and rough-hewn, yet sleek and modern, it can go in any direction, so tomboys and gamine-girls, don’t be shy to drop a piece or two into your current menswear-inspired looks.
How did the Bario Neal x Linder teams get from concept to a final product? Here’s a little insight into how a vision becomes reality: Continue reading Bario Neal x Linder NYC: A Colorful Collaboration
