Bario Neal Fuses Organic Style with Environmental Impact

TODAY’S JEWELRY CUSTOMER cares about gem and metal sourcing and how those things affect the land and the people they come from – but they also care about style. When a jewelry collection is beautiful and edgy while also using 100% reclaimed precious metals, Fairmined gold, and ethically sourced gemstones, you have a hit on your hands.

Such is the case with Bario Neal, a line created by designers Anna Bario and Page Neal in 2007. The two joined forces after discovering a common interest in the sculptural possibilities of jewelry and its potential for cultural resonance. The company promotes traceability, transparency and marriage equality, even donating a percentage of the profits to many environmental and social justice organizations, both local and global, including Delaware Riverkeeper, Ethical Metalsmiths, EarthWorks, Freedom to Marry, Human Rights Campaign, and Planned Parenthood.

It’s the type of story that resonates with consumers. But the story alone won’t do it – the look of the jewelry has to be fashionable as well, and it is. Most of the pieces included some asymmetrical element and have a rough, organic look, yet there’s also a precious, feminine quality in each one.

Bario Neal manufactures its pieces in Philadelphia and also has a showroom on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
