Our Custom Design process lets us work with you on a one-of-a-kind design, whether you’re starting from scratch or have a specific vision, want to update an heirloom or create a new one, or are interested in personalizing a piece from our collection. If you are interested in starting the custom design process, please fill out our custom design questionnaire and a member of our sales team will get back to you shortly.
Many customers use heirloom stones as part of their custom design. When reviewing the pricing listed for these custom examples, please note we have approximated what it would cost to recreate the custom design using stones sourced by Bario Neal. Whether you choose to use heirloom stones or Bario Neal sourced stones for your custom piece, we will work together with you to price out your custom project with us based on your stones and design.
Where Our Stones Come From
To us, ethical diamonds are more than just conflict-free. We work with a fully traceable supply chain, from mine to market. Our diamonds are primarily of recycled, Canadian and Australian origin, lab-grown.
Responsibly sourced metals are the cornerstone of our commitment to minimizing our environmental footprint. Conscientious craftsmanship begins with Fairmined and Recycled metal.
Gemstone sourcing is where we have the most direct relationships with miners and suppliers and can purchase nearly directly from individuals and cooperatives in ways that support sustainable development. Some of our suppliers provide micro-financing to small-scale mining operations to help them protect and restore the biodiversity of the lands they affect and assist financially with goals that positively impact their communities. Through these relationships, we’re able to provide high-quality, traceable gems while supporting an industry that is steadily moving towards rigorous environmental, labor, and health standards.
Bario Neal was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The city is still home to our flagship store and workshop, and we’re proud to be part of a thriving art, design, and makers’ community. All of our jewelry is crafted in-house or in collaboration with American makers, which allows us to reduce our environmental footprint and create products with minimal impact.
Environmentalism isn’t a trend at Bario Neal. Material sourcing, packaging, and the longevity of a design are a part of our process — we consider how a material will hold up in daily wear and how easily it can be recycled in fifty years.
