John Hardy Jewelry: An Affair With Sustainable Luxury

The holiday season is here and most of you probably shopped your heart out this past weekend!

Today is Cyber Monday and I spent some time shopping online, of course. Jewelry has been on my radar lately (ok, when is it not?), and so I wanted to feature jewelry from John Hardy because of his concept of "sustainable luxury". It's a phrase you don't hear very often in the fashion world. Well, we do hear of companies who have become more conscious of the environment, but it's a rare thing to get it from luxury brands, especially in the jewelry department.

I love jewelry that is unique and eye-catching. I remember coming across a quote that said something like, People may not remember what you clothes you had on, but they'll remember the jewelry. 

I don't know about you, but a nice piece of jewelry always makes me feel beautiful.  A beautiful piece of jewelry can dazzle up any outfit - even if you just have on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. 

John Hardy has created a beautiful collection of  bracelets, earrings, necklaces, enhancer pendants, and rings as well as an extensive men's collection.  All of the pieces are hand-made in Bali.

One of my favorite pieces from the collection is the gold and silver band ring pictured above.  It was inspired from ancient architecture in China.

"I think you can feel the hand of the artisan in our pieces," John Hardy says. "There's a warmth of spirit that remains in the silver, in the gold."
