About the Brand
In 1975, the artisan collective known as John Hardy was formed by the brand’s Canadian namesake, primarily inspired by the jewelry-making traditions of Bali. Dedicated to hand-crafted artistry, sustainability, and the celebration of community and togetherness, the John Hardy Workshop & Kapal Bamboo Boutique employs over 500 multi-generational craftspeople. They specialize in everything from watercolor to metalsmithing. John Hardy offers vocational training along with financial support to Balinese artisans.
A passion and appreciation for the beauty of the natural world are evident in the nature-inspired jewelry collections and the codes of practice upheld by the brand to ensure every piece is produced ethically with conflict-free metals, gemstones, and diamonds.
The Classic Chain Collection
The collection this brand is most widely known for is the Classic Chain. One of John Hardy's jewelry's most foundational design elements is the distinctive chain, handwoven via traditional Balinese techniques. The iconic Classic Chain bracelet takes four days for one artisan to weave. You will also find woven drop earrings, bold chain necklaces, statement rings, and more from this collection.
The Dot Collection
Characterized by organically shaped and textured circle patterns, the Dot collection is inspired by the enchanting pebble beaches of Bali. Sterling silver, gold, diamonds, and mother of pearl make these pieces sparkle. Hammered finishes offer an eye-catching texture, while mixed metals create dynamism and contrast. Extraordinary and unexpected, these accessories are guaranteed to be unlike anything else in your collection.
The Bamboo Collection
Showcasing John Hardy’s commitment to the environment and admiration of the unparalleled beauty of nature, sculptural depictions of evergreen bamboo stalks distinguish the Bamboo collection. From fashion rings to hoop earrings, each piece in this collection serves as a reminder of the wonders achieved by Mother Nature. As part of the “Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo” initiative, John Hardy plants a number of bamboo seedlings for every purchase made from this collection.
The Legends Naga Collection
Legends Naga jewelry is unapologetically bold and genuinely magical, imbued with the visage of a mighty mythical dragon. Each piece features a roaring dragon’s head and a pattern of metal scales. It is said that one should wear the mythical water dragon facing outward for protection or inward for love. Stunning silver cuff bracelets, compact stud earrings, and attention-grabbing pendant necklaces are sure to inspire awe.
