Well-versed aficionados of fine jewellery will be no stranger to the John Hardy brand - palatable to all aesthetic sensibilities while remaining singularly faithful to the creative voice of the man himself, John Hardy has staked an artistic claim in the industry that is like no other; his incomparable vision is one that Golden Tree Jewellers is honored to supply to the greater Langley area.
John Hardy himself hails from Ontario, and after earning a degree from the Ontario College of Art and Design started his own jewellery label after a fateful trip to Bali in Indonesia. While there, he acquired a taste for the stylistic conventions of the provincial culture and ancestral techniques used to make the traditional jewellery of the region; he started the company in 1975, choosing to begin in the country that sparked the initial conception that would later grow into a multi-million-dollar empire.
As one of our best-selling name brands, we always keep a well-stocked portfolio of all of his most popular designs; informed by his experience in the Far East, every piece he produces carries with it an air of sophistication that is both unfamiliar and simultaneously universal. Our selection of necklaces, chains, and pendants exemplify this ethos, from the uncluttered and modest Classic Chain to the unquestionably unique Legend, featuring a gorgeous, ring-like dragon hand-set with sapphire eyes. These earrings from his acclaimed Bamboo Collection bear a dual meaning - not only exquisite and beautiful in their own right, they also recall the organization's effort to offset their physical carbon footprint by planting bamboo that not only produces life-sustaining oxygen in the region but also benefits Bali financially by serving as the raw material used to mass-produce merchandise under the "Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo" movement; these sterling silver bangles echo that sentiment.
If you're lusting for a new statement piece in the form of a ring, look no further; his contributions in this category are without rival. Our assortment of John Hardy bracelets for sale, by far the type of accessory from John Hardy with the most to choose from in our store, offers something that will suit any taste. Those hailing from his mysterious and captivating Dot Collection, particularly this intriguing foxtail chain, bewitches the eye and pairs perfectly with this pearl pendant of the same category. His Naga cuff excites similar fascination.
Far from a shallow appropriator of foreign culture, John Hardy maintains an ethical commitment not only to the long-standing customs of the people who influenced the character of his work but also to the environment and world as a whole; every piece of jewellery manufactured under his name is comprised of sustainably-sourced material by local, fairly-paid employees. If you've come to Golden Tree Jewellers in search of jewellery produced by a designer that cares, John Hardy offers the most both in terms of pure artistry and moral accountability.
