Earthly force meets elegant form and unsurpassed beauty in a collection of ravishing masterpieces: a one-of-a-kind display of high craft and bold creativity for the luxurious Cinta Collection.
For over forty years, John Hardy artisans have committed to making handcrafted jewelry with techniques passed down for generations, using vetted suppliers to ensure that both diamonds and gemstones conform to high ethical standards, and by using reclaimed silver and gold. The brand’s passion for creating distinctive and meaningful jewelry is echoed by their dedication to building a sustainable future for their artisans and clients worldwide. Named after the Balinese word for love, Cinta is an exceptionally unique collection that starts with the gem. Its elemental beauty and mythic properties, celebrated with the contours of nature, will inspire a story – the Cinta Legends Naga Trilogy – brought to life by highly skilled artisans and serendipitous discovery. Under the helm of Hollie Bonneville Barden, John Hardy’s first female creative director, the concept of high jewelry reaches new heights when looking at the mesmerizing Volcano necklace. The production of this one-of-a-kind necklace took 110 days of meticulous handcrafting by a team of master artisans. First rendered in gouache, the exact model in gold was hand-carved over fifteen days before lost-wax casting and assembly. The final stage was the hand-setting of the 650 gemstones followed by polishing. Inspired by Balinese folklore depicting the protective Naga as an embodiment of different natural spirits, the necklace features pave-set brown diamonds, brown and orange sapphires and brown zircons. An 18K rose gold and tiger iron Naga pendant is suspended from a string of tiger iron, Madeira citrine, and black tourmaline beads: a breathtaking homage to nature’s force and beauty.
