Co-Founder + Designer | Bario Neal
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. Anna serves on the board of Ethical Metalsmiths and the Marlboro Studio School.
