CT Jeweler Opens Corporate Gift Department for Companies, Non-Profits

According to Indeed, both employees and employers benefit when rewards and incentives are offered in the workplace. Many managers use rewards and incentives to boost morale, motivate their staff and develop a sense of teamwork.  In return, a company can experience an increase in sales, employee loyalty and positivity within the office. Baribault Jewelers, a family-owned fine jewelry and diamond gemstone company in Connecticut, is helping to improve both sides of the work equation by opening a new Corporate Gift department dedicated to recognizing and rewarding an organization’s stellar employees, donors or supporters.  The new division is impeccable in its timing with the resurgence of American workers being mandated to return to the office, as well as the popular fall fundraising event calendar and upcoming company holiday parties.


“Incentives are important tools for driving employee engagement and performance,” said Christina Baribault-Ortiz, co-owner of Baribault Jewelers.  “Our variety of custom-designed, company-branded gift items from engraved watches to inspirational bracelets are top-quality, motivational tools that encourage your employees to produce their absolute best and help ensure long-term company success.”

A recent Fortune article notes that 2023 is the year that corporate offices will achieve 2019, pre-pandemic occupancy levels as 1 million American workers will face orders to return to in-person work full time.  A tight labor market means that employees are in the driver’s seat and aren’t afraid to quit if their needs aren’t being met.  The article also states that companies with a strong culture of employee appreciation will have the smoothest transition.  Gifts that publicly show an employee their personal worth and value to the company can certainly assist in this goal.

Several companies currently partnering with Baribault Jewelers include The Hartford, The Osterman Corporation, Somberg & Gottfried Financial, Dealerships Monaco Ford, Tommy Car Auto Group,  Town of Glastonbury, Town of Glastonbury, Smith Brothers Insurance, The Hills Country Club, Board of Education Glastonbury and other Connecticut-based organizations.

“One of our most powerful employee recognition gifts is our popular and nationally renowned bracelet line called The Power to B,” said Raeann Baribault-Schwartz.  “Each bracelet’s simple design and inspiring words have given thousands of people the courage to face any challenge and prevail.  In fact, the universal collection has been embraced by all genders and ages in various stages of their professional lives.”

Specifically, the bracelet displays silver and gold power words, including B Strong, B Fierce, B Badass, B Limitless, B Fearless, B Grateful, Be Blessed, B Brave, B Present, B Kind and B You set to a variety of colored cords that can be customized with a company’s logo colors.  They also feature a black gemstone known for positive energy. 

Besides employees, Baribault-Ortiz notes that corporate gifts can also be used by non-profit organizations in their fundraising efforts either as incentives to attract event attendees, to use as gifts for speakers and top donors or even as an original fundraiser itself. 

In fact, Baribault Jewelers has custom-designed bracelets for a variety of local and national charities and donated proceeds to the particular cause. More than $10,000 has been raised for such charities as the UCONN Foundation, Glastonbury Education Foundation, Bristol Police Heroes Fund, HOPE for Fertility Foundation, The Robb School Memorial Fund and the Breast Friends Fund, among many others. 

Lastly, Baribault-Schwartz emphasizes that branded jewelry makes a memorable and stunning holiday gift for company parties and office gatherings.  

“All of the offerings in our new Corporate Gift department are affordable options for the employer that make a high-impact for the employee,” adds Baribault-Shwartz. “What’s more, depending on the total number needed, we are more than happy to extend volume discounts.”

About The Power to B

The Power to B collection was created by sisters Christina Baribault-Ortiz and Raeann Baribault-Schwartz in 2019 after both struggled with infertility issues.  Visual messages of positivity placed around their homes got them through this dark time and inspired the third-generation jewelry owners to create stunning bracelets featuring powerful phrases to remind people of all ages that they are never alone. Today, the empowering line encourages its wearer to B Strong, B Fierce, B Badass, B Limitless, B Fearless, B Grateful, Be Blessed, B Present, B Brave, B Kind and B You.  Learn more at thepowertob.com.


The Power to B jewelry collection is just one of the many options available to for-profit companies and non-profit organizations to use as incentives and rewards in recognizing top employees, donors, supporters and others.  Each bracelet can be customized to a company’s colors and preferred power word.
