Every piece of jewelry has a story to tell. At least, at John Hardy they do. The Classic Chain is among the most popular collections by the Bali-based designer jewelry manufacturer; one with a rich history behind it. Back in the 19th
Century, the country’s eight kingdoms vied for status with elegant castles, beautiful queens and exquisite jewelry. The technique for creating the elaborate design of the Classic Chain is inspired by Bali’s ancient chain weaving practice that made a name for its ancient kingdom in jewelry-making. John Hardy learned the unique craft from its first jewelry maker, the grandson of the previous king’s jewelry maker himself. The braided bracelets are handcrafted using annealed sterling silver chains plated with rhodium for a supply draped metal sheen. The remarkably comfortable chains are decked with precious stones such as blue sapphire and amethyst; a perfect gift for the woman who reigns your heart.
