Clio and Athena are sisters, born in Genova, Italy and raised in Leigh on Sea, Essex. Named after characters in Greek mythology, their inspirations are drawn from their heritage and names sake, given to them by their late father, cherishing the memories with him through their classic collection.
Black is being their mothers maiden name and Sigi, the nickname given to their father taken from their surname Sigismondi. Their whole ethos is interlocked in their roots and family, and continues to be a big part of the company today. BAS is about community and support, and like the supportive family they come from, the BAS human campaign is an extension of this ethos – identifying the strong and supportive characters in your life through the jewellery they wear.
