Founded in 1975 by Canadian designer of the same name, John Hardy specializes in handcrafted jewelry with an emphasis on sustainability. The brand was born in Bali when John’s interest in the island’s jewelry won him over. Trained by local artisans, he soon combined his own design ideas with traditional Balinese techniques. The company was acquired in 2007 with its headquarters moved to Hong Kong. Robert Hanson, former head of American Eagle Outfitters, is the current CEO. Utilizing reclaimed silver and gold, traditional Balinese jewelry-making techniques continue to define John Hardy’s collections. Diamonds and other precious materials are also strictly sourced following the international Ethical Sourcing Code of Conduct. Weaved and circular patterns are a hallmark of the brand’s aesthetics with accessibly priced jewelry for both men and women.
