One of A Kind Nikko Blue Sapphire Fairmined Gold Ring
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.
