Charming Chains

Posted by Keller & George at 2:00:00 AM in John Hardy (31)

A chain is a series of connected links which are typically made of metal. The prevalent modern symbolism is oppression, due to the use for a mechanical restriction of the liberty of a human or animal. But more and more people have used it as a symbol of interconnectivity or interdependence. In fact, it symbolizes an eternal connection with an ideal or a loved one. A linked chain has been a symbol of marriage because of the immortal connection soul-mates share. In this light, the chain stands for eternal love - especially in marriage. But for John Hardy, 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. First introduced at John Hardy in the 1980s, the collection – which offers soft and amazingly comfortable to wear silver links – has already evolved to also include the carved chain motif.
