John Hardy Bracelets
Characteristics of John Hardy BraceletsCanadian artist John Hardy began crafting his iconic jewelry line in 1975. Enraptured by the rich and ornate aesthetic of Balinese jewelry, he sought to pay tribute to the rich cultural heritage that produced it by making fine luxury jewelry in the traditional style. The classic techniques of the Balinese royal courts are a cornerstone of the eight-step production process, which takes each work from its watercolor concept to its hand-done stone inlay. John Hardy has gained wide renown for his bold, innovative, and stylish designs. With a deep commitment to sustainability and responsible business practices, all collections proudly utilize ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones, and one hundred percent reclaimed gold and silver.
Popular John Hardy Bracelet Collections at Rumanoff’s Fine JewelryThe Classic and Modern Chain collections showcase the profound beauty that results from the traditional Balinese jewelry crafting process. The painstakingly hand-interwoven links of Classic collection chains take a single artisan four days to complete for a single bracelet, producing meticulously detailed works of art that draw the eye to their chic and graceful forms. The Modern Chain collection transforms these classics, giving them a streamlined twist. With flattened silhouettes and the addition of a wrist clasp, these opulent pieces marry antique sophistication with modern refinement and practicality, while still maintaining the traditional Balinese look that sets John Hardy apart from the competition.
The Dot, Bamboo, and Naga collections evoke the naturalistic beauty of Bali. The Dot collection draws from its gorgeous pebble-strewn beaches to produce eye-catching dappled designs. The Naga collection’s form was borrowed from the bold draconic figures of Indonesian mythology. These scaled pieces project the elegant power of their legendary inspirations. Drawn from its lush forests and unique architecture, the Bamboo collection’s sleek and smooth links draw the observer into the serenity of a woodland bamboo retreat. For each purchase made from the Bamboo collection, a number of bamboo saplings are planted in Bali, to further the development of the beautiful landscape that inspired these timeless works. To date, over one million saplings have been planted as part of this initiative.
