Bamboo with Stunning Sapphires

Posted by Schwarzschild at 7:42:40 PM in John Hardy (29)

Since the 1970's John Hardy has been designing jewelry that's both modern and classic. The Bamboo Collection, inspired by the exotic plant, showcases the unique structural rings that tall stalks of bamboo have, giving a sleek aesthetic look to the pieces.

Collectively the pieces would create a cohesive look, either with an elegant blue or white gown or even a beach-ready black maxi dress, indicating a multi-purposeful accessory, a smart addition to any jewelry box.

Oh, those Simple Days

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:00:00 AM in John Hardy (29)

Remember the times when you were carefree in your twenties, and your style leaned on the mystical, natural, and folkloric influences? You’d go backpacking around the world with the simplest means, and you fell in love with anything organic. The leather bracelet with some bamboo accents was all that you like as accessory. But as you grew older and your career started to take off, you began to indulge in the more luxurious parts of life. You learned to appreciate precious metals, finer wines, fine dining, and the like. Now in your mid-thirties or early forties, you’ve all forgotten about how cheap life was. Deep inside you still crave for the simple life, the natural, organic, cheap stuff. As far as your accessories go, you can still do that without compromising luxury. Signatures like John Hardy brings you back to your backpacking days, the bamboo accents, without you having to leave the luxurious comfort of life.

Different kind of celebrity endorsement

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:00:55 AM in John Hardy (29)

Celebrities are natural endorsers of jewelry signatures, but one celebrity takes the endorsement to a higher level. Where most stars only wear the piece for a special occasion once, Nina Dobrev of the drama series DeGrassi has worn the same John Hardy two-tone bracelet almost daily as shown in her series of photographs. She was first seen with the John Hardy at the DirectTV Super Saturday party in San Francisco, CA. The next day, she’s seen donning the same bracelet at the Super Bowl game, supporting the Packers. A few more days, she’s spotted again wearing the same bracelet in Toronto, this time the photo was candid, proving she’s really wearing the John Hardy. Lastly, she’s again wearing it at an Oscars party on February 27. She does like the John Hardy bracelet, right? It proves the jewelry’s versatility.

First date flops

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:19:51 PM in John Hardy (29)

Who said it’s going to be smooth and easy. First dates can be as tricky as the most complex math problem. Or as easy as silk if you keep tab of these first date mistakes to avoid. Never ever talk about the ex, or if she asks, just keep a casual short answer. It didn’t work out should be the quick answer. Likewise, don’t flirt with anyone except with the girl in front of you. If you’ve get that habit of giving the waitress the extra smile, drop it on the first date. It also still pays to foot the bill, or at least the coffee. Women will never admit it, but they feel more valued when men go for that extra mile or cash in this case. As for your outfit, don’t underdress or overdress. Just keep a neat casual suit, nicely polished pair of loafers and simple but elegant accessories like a John Hardy coiled bracelet.

The difference is in the human touch

Posted by Schwarzschild at 9:59:37 AM in John Hardy (29)

In this age of 3D printers, high-definition laser cutters, and a myriad of mind-boggling gadgets — most of which ensure unparalleled accuracy and ultra-fast results, it’s always a comforting thought that some people still cling to age-old traditional methods in creating products that demonstrate human creativity and artistry. The Bali, Indonesia-based jewelry designer John Hardy is one such organization, well-known for its strict adherence to employing traditional jewelry-making techniques and earth-friendly production processes. Take for instance its Palu collection, a line of purely hand-hammered elegant pieces to achieve unparalleled rich texture and engaging design. Inspired by the moon’s magnificently mottled façade, each Palu piece is pummelled by the skilled hands of husband-and-wife teams of artisans to achieve the distinct battered Palu surface. The intricate dynamics in the artisans’ everyday relationships pave way for nuances in the resulting designs which is a key component of this profound creative procedure.

Lovestruck with Palu

Posted by Schwarzschild at 8:43:25 AM in John Hardy (29)

Nestled on the alluring k-shaped island of Sulawesi, Palu is the portal to some of Indonesia’s exotic getaways like Bada Valley and the Lore Lindu National Park. As a city naturally-endowed with beautiful white sand beaches and virgin tropical forests, Palu is simply one of the places to be when visiting the Far East. No wonder, Bali-based jewelry designer John Hardy did not only fell in love with Palu’s natural wonders — he even designed one jewelry collection to express his deep admiration for the place. To capture the picturesque vignette of rippling sails of boats of Balinese fisherfolks and the refraction of light on the water, John Hardy created the Palu collection, which includes expertly hand-hammered silver sterling jewelry pieces to arrive at a unique battered texture that gently mirrors light.

Love awaits you

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:00:28 PM in John Hardy (29)

It’s not really the value of the precious stone set in the jewelry that makes it special. Nor is it the price of the material used such as platinum, gold and sterling that reflects the piece like a ring, bracelet or necklace. It’s the rarity that counts most that sets the jewelry a cut above the rest. Like John Hardy’s Cinta, Indonesian for “love.” It’s truly a work of love expressed in detailed design from 18k gold, set with pink sapphires and diamonds and framed by two Nagas set. Each piece is uniquely made, an obra of a master jewelry craftsman. The Cinta collection is an offshoot of John Hardy’s quest to gift his wife with a piece that is one-of-its-kind. Soon, that gift would spawn a whole line of handcrafted designs with no two pieces alike. Each Cinta  awaits to find its lover. Will that be you?

Facial Recognition

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:16:27 PM in John Hardy (29)

Wearing the best pair of earrings doesn’t stop at buying a luxurious brand like John Hardy. The earrings should match your facial shape. An oval-shaped face looks stunning with a teardrop earring. It adds a point to counter the otherwise slender lines of the oval. The same style (and reason) also works for a round face. She can also use a dangle type to add length to her face. Meantime, earrings with elongated curves and line work okay for a heart-shaped face. It draws attention to the cheekbones and jaw line. If your face is square, hoop earrings can soften it. On the other hand, a narrow face can use dangle earrings to minimize the facial length. Consider your facial shape first before buying a glamorous earring like a John Hardy to get the best value out of luxury.

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:07:55 PM in John Hardy (29)

Rivers are fascinating bodies of water; the calmness of their waters can soothe the harried soul and drown away all worries. To many people, rivers also provide much needed sustenance, being a source of food and clean water to drink.

Resilient bamboo

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:54:37 AM in John Hardy (29)

In Asia, the bamboo has always served as a source of inspiration for different cultures. This species of overgrown grass is viewed by many as a symbol of both resilience and versatility. Unlike trees, the bamboo’s strength comes not from the hardness of its body but from its ability to bow before the strongest of winds and still be able to stay in one piece. In Bali, Indonesia, the bamboo is regarded as a most versatile source of materials. It can be used to create wondrous things and also be a good source of nourishment for the Balinese. Noted jewelry designer John Hardy pays tribute to this gift from nature in its Bamboo Collection. This line of finely jewelry is of pure sterling silver and lavished with a variety of precious gems.

Love you can wear

Love, that human emotion that some say makes the world go round, and for others still, a mighty entity that conquers the coldest of hearts, often evokes images of beauty, tranquility and overwhelming joy.

Taking its name from the Indonesian word for love, the collection started out with a single piece designed by Guy Bedarida as a gift for John Hardy’s wife.
