John Hardy Men's Jewelry
Characteristics of John Hardy
In 1975, John Hardy brought together a group of artisans with a mission to continue Balinese jewelry-making traditions. Central to the brand’s identity, John Hardy jewelry remains hand-crafted, using ethically sourced gemstones, one-hundred percent reclaimed gold and silver, and techniques passed down from the Balinese royal courts. This dedication and attention to detail serve as a hallmark not only of their incredibly intricate and inspiring designs but in their commitment to sustainability. To date, their “Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo” initiative has planted over one million bamboo seedlings as part of their ongoing work to preserve Bali’s natural landscape.
Popular John Hardy Men’s Jewelry Collections
The Classic Chain collection has been an iconic staple of John Hardy from its very inception. These pieces are emblematic of the traditional process, as each one takes an artisan four days to weave using authentic Balinese methods. Whether fashioned into a necklace or a wristlet, the Classic Chain represents power, boldness, and the strength of a community bound together through the connections of its people. In an updated take on the Classic Chain, the Modern Chain features a streamlined design, representative of finding a balance between old and new, and of making changes for the better, without sacrificing tradition.

Few things, however, offer a more traditional, stable image than that of the dragon, and Balinese tradition is no exception. In Bali, the Naga is a water dragon that serves as a symbol of power and prosperity. This mythic creature lends some of that strong will and fierce pride to every piece in the Legends Naga collection, as each one uses the dragon’s likeness to evoke strength and might. Whether biting its own tail, defending the ocean’s pearl, or simply staring out in vast relief, these Legends are striking creatures whether worn as symbols of protection or given as tokens of love.
