The founders also focus on improving transparency and accountability in gemstone mining and sourcing throughout the jewelry industry. From the beginning, Bario Neal has supported LGBTQIA rights and worldwide marriage equality, working to eliminate the presumption of heterosexuality in the wedding and jewelry industry.
The company’s striking freeform creations have been featured in Vogue, Bazaar, Sight Unseen, National Geographic, and more. In 2016, Bario Neal appeared alongside two other companies in Vogue’s ‘Diamonds in the Rough: 3 Sources for Sustainable, Responsibly Made Jewelry.’ Discussing the company’s work, Emily Farra wrote: “By making everything by hand, their impact on the environment is minimal, but their aesthetic isn’t compromised as a result.”
