During a 1975 trip to Bali, Canadian jeweler John Hardy fell in love with the island’s rich culture and artistry. Transfixed by the local Balinese jewelry, Hardy designed his own line of handmade, Asian-inspired pieces. Four decades later, John Hardy is celebrating its inspired inception with the release of the limited-edition John Hardy 40th Anniversary Collection of women’s and men’s bracelets.
The offerings for women will include four Classic Chain 18-Karat Gold Diamond Pavé Large Chain Bracelets with 634 hand-cut diamonds on the chain and clasp; 40 Classic Chain 18-Karat Gold Diamond Pavé Large Chain Bracelets with pavé diamonds on the clasp; 400 Classic Chain Silver Large Chain Bracelets with clasps set with black, blue, pink, and red sapphires; and 4,000 Classic Chain Silver Lava Mini Chain Bracelets with tsavorite and amethyst, and black, blue, red, and pink sapphire stones set on a lobster-style clasp. The solitary men’s bracelet is part of the Classic Chain Collection, and it features braided leather (available in black, brown, and orange) and a distinctive silver clasp. The collection (from $340 to $29,000) will be available online and in select retail stores starting in November. (johnhardy.com)
