Bario Neal Launches Children’s Jewelry Line
In time for Mother’s Day, the Philadelphia-based brand is debuting a “Mommy and Me” collection.
Philadelphia—In time for Mother’s Day, Bario Neal is debuting a “Mommy and Me” collection.
The Philadelphia-based fine jewelry brand, designed by Anna Bario and Page Neal, says it is dedicated to using ethically sourced materials with low environmental impact—think recycled gold alternative engagement rings featuring clusters of responsibly mined stones—and had this philosophy in mind when creating for children.
“The Bario Neal Baby & Child Keepsakes reflects our desire to design objects of lasting value,” said Bario. “As parents know, from clothes to disposable toys, kids have a way of putting a dent in sustainable living. You politely request, ‘No more plastic stuff, please!’ and it keeps coming.”
Neal added, “We love the idea that these bangles for babies and kids will be a keepsake you give a child, a partner, a friend, or yourself in place of another teething toy or swaddle blanket. With matching adult sizes and a name engraving option, this custom jewelry is all about a family’s love, for each other and the environment.”
The collection is launching with bangles in sterling silver and 14-karat yellow gold. They come in four sizes—baby, toddler, child and adult—and retail from $84 to $490, plus the cost of engraving if desired.
The bracelets are made by hand in Bario Neal’s Philadelphia studio out of recycled metal.
The Bario Neal Baby & Child Keepsakes bangles are now being sold individually and as sets at BarioNeal.com and the brand’s studio/retail shop, as well as by custom order through the retailers that carry Bario Neal.
