Boho Jewelry and Goods at ARO

In the South Lamar space that was formerly Sunroom (which is relocating to South Congress Hotel), a bright, boho, and creative new boutique has opened up shop. ARO stocks jewelry and great gifts made by independent designers and artisans. Everything sold at ARO is special because of its quality design and craftsmanship. Austinites know well how important it is to support local artists, and ARO is all about championing the little guy in that same spirit.

ARO storefront

ARO is named after the Aro River in Venezuela, where the shop owners are from. While the shop sells a ton of jewelry, you'll find a great selection of artisan lifestyle goods, as well. That makes this little shop a great place to find gifts or unique steals for your own home. On our recent visit, we found some gorgeously branded beauty products, as well as handmade ceramics and cards.

Handmade ceramics, cards, and artisan beauty prooducts


Many of ARO's products are multi-purpose. We found a few dishes and bowls (above) that would work well for appetizers, plants, or catch-alls. The open hand ceramics are perfect for keeping track of loose earrings and rings, but could also be the perfect spot for a tea candle. We also found some great bags and clutches (below).

But we were most enamored with ARO's jewelry. So much beautiful gold, so many great layering and stacking pieces, and all of it made by a variety of artisans! The Gillian Steinhardt pearl collection below walks a fine line between sophisticated and edgy. We love that you can dress these pieces up or down. These jewels take you from East 6th right to the country club.
