About John Hardy
For thousands of years, Bali has had an incomparably unique culture. Isolated but surrounded by some of the world’s most vibrant cultures, it was impossible for Bali to avoid becoming a real treasure of the Pacific region. The rich artistic history, natural beauty, and unique branch of Hinduism found in Bali inspired Canadian designer John Hardy, who immigrated to the island in 1975. After opening his eponymous studio, John Hardy has been the source of some of the modern era’s most unique jewelry choices. At BENARI JEWELERS, we’re pleased to offer fashion jewelry collections from this unique atelier.
Popular Collections of John Hardy
One of the most popular looks from John Hardy is a pleasantly contemporary throwback to one of their vintage looks. The Tiga line is inspired by the designer’s Classic Chain collection that was first popularized in the 80s. A triangular set of interwoven chains, Tiga pieces are designed to undulate in a graceful serpentine manner, with a gentle point facing upward. The slider clasp on these bracelets are made with some of the most colorful choices in jewelry design, ranging from graceful blue or pink sapphire to the rich green of tsavorite. You can still find Classic Chain collection pieces at BENARI JEWELERS, where we carry the fashion jewelry pieces inspired by the unique Balinese chains.
Additional John Hardy Collections
The Lahar collection is another amazing choice for fashion jewelry. The Balinese word for lava gave this collection its name, and it’s not difficult to see the inspiration. Diamonds are set in asymmetric channels, following the curves of layered 925 sterling silver. Made to look like slow-cooling lava, these bracelets, necklaces, and fashion rings add their striking, handcrafted uniqueness to any woman’s look. Alternatively, if you’re looking for another collection inspired by nature, try the Bamboo collection. Made to resemble sticks of bamboo worked into breathtaking jewelry, these silver works of art are textured and buffed to make them appear as if they grew from the moon-colored metal.
