(PRESS RELEASE) GLASTONBURY, CT– When Christina Baribault-Ortiz and Raeann Baribault-Schwartz of Baribault Jewelers decided to design an empowering jewelry line based on their collective struggles with infertility, they hoped that they might inspire others to remain strong and courageous while going through any life challenge. Now, their wearable words of encouragement and positive impact have elevated to a global level. Specifically, the female entrepreneurial duo recently earned a Globee Award in the Women in Business Category for their innovative and successful The Power to B collection. This is the second international award that the family-owned jewelry company has clinched this season.

“We were ecstatic when we learned that Baribault Jewelers was the recipient of the Global Recognition Award last month for our company’s achievements in entrepreneurship and corporate responsibility,” said Raeann Baribault-Schwartz, co-owner of Baribault Jewelers. “This Globee Award is extra special for my sister and I because it is recognizing our particular contributions as female business owners and reinforcing the fact that women are indeed shaping the future of the world.”

According to the Globee Awards website, the term “Globee” is a combination of the words “global” and “business” and presents recognition in nine distinct programs and competitions. The awards not only celebrate individual accomplishments, but also inspire others to strive for excellence and set new benchmarks.

The GlobeeSM Awards follows a rigorous and comprehensive judging process with a panel of experienced professionals from diverse industries and backgrounds, who evaluate entries based on innovation, impact, and measurable results.

  • Launching the line at the 2022 Academy Awards, as part of a premiere pre-Oscar gift show with top celebrities embracing the collection.
  • Being featured in a permanent display case at an exclusive gift shop in West Hollywood.
  • Birthing a sisterhood of thousands of customers, who wear the bracelets to bolster their inner strength and resilience and post their stories on the company’s social media sites.
  • Using the line as a fundraising vehicle for numerous local, statewide and national non-profit organizations, including the UCONN Foundation, Glastonbury Education Foundation, Bristol Police Heroes Fund, HOPE for Fertility Foundation, The Robb School Memorial Fund, the CT Breast Health Initiative,
  • Breast Friends Fund, among many others. Thus far, more than $15,000 has been donated to various charities.
