About John Hardy:
Inspired by the island of Bali, John Hardy incorporated traditional Balinese jewelry-making techniques into his striking designs. The John Hardy collection, which is today under the guidance of Guy Bedarida, features earth-inspired handmade jewelry for men, women, and children. A company-wide focus on sustainability underscores its design motifs found in nature.
The stunningly complex Classic Chain technique dates back to the 19th century when Bali was divided between eight kingdoms, each king competing for status with the beauty of his castles, queens, and jewelry. The first of John Hardy's jewelry makers was the grandson of a king's jewelry maker, bringing with him the knowledge of the chain, as had been passed down to him. The sterling silver links of the Classic Chain collection are hand-woven, annealed for a smooth, supple drape, and often plated with rhodium to lend a sheen to the metal.
