John Hardy Sustainable Design

John Hardy Fans! Show your love with modern style and exceptional craftsmanship with classic gifts for Him and Her from John Hardy's Classic Chain Collection!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and John Hardy offers unique hand made design that speaks sustainable quality, appreciation for history and responsible caring.

The stunningly complex classic chain technique is a tribute to the ancient chain weaving practiced in Bali since the 19th century when the country was still divided into eight kingdoms, each king competing for status with the beauty of his castles, queens and jewelry.

The first of John Hardy jewelry makers was the grandson of a king's jewelry maker, bringing with him the knowledge of the chain, as had been passed down to him. 

The sterling silver links on the classic chain are hand-woven, annealed for a smooth, supple drape and often plated with rhodium to lend a sheen to the metal! 

The handcrafting yields a chain that is soft and amazingly comfortable to wear. 

First introduced at John Hardy in the 1980s, the motif has evolved to also include the carved chain motif. 

Watch this great video on the Classic Chain Collection and how it is made:
