About John Hardy
A treasured province of Indonesia, a tropical jewel of the Western Pacific, an ancient kingdom: Bali is all these things and more. In 1975, John Hardy, a Canadian designer, opened a workshop in Bali, inspired by the years of unique history on the island and its remarkable landscape. Most of the pieces of fashion jewelry handcrafted by the John Hardy atelier are made from 925 sterling silver, which gives them a moon-colored gleam that develops a fascinating patina over the decades. Here at Lewis Jewelers, we offer John Hardy’s collection of men’s and women’s fashion jewelry that’s right for adding brilliance to any look.
Popular Collections of John Hardy
John Hardy specializes in fashion jewelry, and no matter your style preference, there’s plenty to appreciate in the collections we offer at Lewis Jewelers. One of the designer’s collections that crosses across all lines of fashion jewelry is the Bamboo collection. The woody grass that decorates Bali was the inspiration for the black-buffed silver pieces that curve and intertwine into truly exotic pieces of this line—and accents of 18k yellow gold and black sapphire serve to add surprising charm. When you buy a piece from this collection, the brand plants bamboo plants on island as their way of giving back to the local community.
Additional John Hardy Collections
The Classic Chain collection is a modern interpretation of the ancient chain jewelry that decorated the monarchs of Bali. While many of these designs boast certain jewels that would have been familiar to the ancient Balinese, including baroque pearls and colored quartz, others feature modern gemstones like turquoise, blue sapphire, and emerald. The Dot collection may have a simple name, but that belies the collection’s brilliant designs. The repoussé hammering in the 18k gold and the flat circular discs that make up the jewelry are greater than the sum of their parts. For a somewhat different look, check out the Modern Chain collection too!
