came across this amazing brand and i automatically thought their designs were so pretty but when i read about the designers and the brand's philosophy and that's when i fell in love. their brand statement is simple: "bario-neal is handcrafted in philadelphia with reclaimed precious metal, ethically-sourced stones, and low-impact, environmentally conscious practices."
all of the jewelry hand made and uses 100% reclaimed metals where possible, the diamonds come from canada where they are ethically sourced and they work with a local, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization called the tanzania women miner's association (tawoma) to source coloured gemstones.
anyways, so many good things they do besides producing really lovely pieces of jewelry, read about all their efforts here.
i just really love the fluidity and organic feel of all the pieces and the knot ring is so simple and cute!
