Story

Inspired by Bali and its time-honored jewelry-making traditions, Canadian artist John Hardy established an artisan collective in 1975 dedicated to creating one-of-a-kind jewelry and preserving the rich heritage of Bali. For over 40 years John Hardy's artisans have committed to making handcrafted jewelry with techniques passed down for generations, using vetted suppliers to ensure both diamonds and gemstones conform to John Hardy's high ethical standards, as well as reclaimed silver and gold. John Hardy's passion for creating distinctive and meaningful jewelry is echoed by its dedication to building a sustainable future for its artisan community. 

Craftmanship

John Hardy's craft jewelry by hand, one piece at a time, through a unique 8-step process starting with a hand-sketched and watercolor design, followed by a wax carving and master casting of the piece, and ending with the hand-setting of each gemstone. John Hardy is known for bold designs and meticulous attention to details, seen in its iconic Classic Chain bracelet, which takes one artisan four days to weave by hand. Over the years, John Hardy has stayed true to the authentic jewelry-making techniques of the Balinese royal courts— chain-weaving, hand-hammering precious metals, carving intricate back-grille scenes inspired by nature, and the textured jawan motif, traditionally found in the decoration of sacred objects. Each one-of-a-kind piece is imbued with meaning through powerful design and dramatic details.
