The Naga pendant is a 2 mm wide Sterling Silver chain linking to a black onyx stone, measuring 15 mm by 10.5mm, that is embedded with the silver image of a Naga. This beautifully and masterfully crafted piece is one of three items in the John Hardy Legends Collection. It is represented alongside the Cobra, the serpent of reincarnation and renewal, and the Macan, the tiger of strength and passion.
Myths of the Naga range all over Southeastern Asia from India to Japan, but this piece is inspired by Chinese mythology. The water dragon is a protector who guards the pearl of the ocean. The ancient believed the pearl to be the jewel that grants all desires. All dragons carried pearls, and to the Chinese, pearls also represented the Moon. To the ancients, the Moon was a symbol of the goddess of life, love and elixirs.
John Hardy was established in Bali in 1975 due to the artist's fascination with the Southeast Asian island. He gathered a group of local artists to help him start the John Hardy jewelry company. All products are crafted from the materials of the earth along with handmade materials. Each piece is inspired by symbolism of Asian mythology, of the culture that surrounds him. He wants there to be jewelry that represents every heart, every desire. Every storyteller can find a piece that speaks to them.
So wear this Naga Pendant, of the water dragon guarding the pearl, the Moon against the black onyx night sky. Feel the power of protection and also the love of the goddess. Know that abundance is all around you.
Trying to find a befitting gift for a woman you love (mother, wife, girlfriend or a female relative) may be a bit of a problem especially if they are taste-specific. One thing is for sure though: jewelry sets a good mood for appreciation any day, any time. To achieve this, one needs to find a suitable jeweler who is original and has a unique product. Mikimoto has received numerous praises globally for having adorable and unique products that a woman can find hard to resist.
The company was founded by Kokichi Mikimoto who nurtured world’s first cultured beads and later went ahead and established his first Black South Sea pearl in 1914, which gave the pearl industry a new dimension. He ensures that each pearl harvested is so unique that it is termed as its own ‘fingerprint.' Certain qualities are considered when assessing superiority of the beads:
1. Luster, quantity of brightness a jewel replicates from both its exterior luminosity and the profound replication of its inner brightness. Only a bright spark bares the Mikimoto name.
2. Outward perfection (fewer exterior imperfections denote a higher quality, more valuable pearl) is incredibly important.
3. Shape (most pearls are rounded, but with Mikimoto, unique shapes like buttons, teardrop, oval and baroque are also familiar) is also a factor in choosing superior pearls.
4. Color (this mostly depends on color of oyster that produces them). High quality pearls have awe-inspiring colors.
5. Size (pearls are measured in millimeters, therefore size has absolutely nothing to do with its quality).
