One thing that impresses me about John Hardy necklaces is their versatility. You can go simple with single linear thread, or complex with multi-layered designs. You can have a solitary precious metal or dual precious metal running across your neckline. You can go traditional like the Classic Chain, which features a small cross pendant, a reflection of conservatism. Or, you can go pagan or tribal-inspired, like the Bamboo Necklace featuring black obsidian and black sapphire strung in bamboo-like beads. Likewise, there’s an evident quiet in the Bedeg Collection, a slim necklace that features a simple chain pattern. Contrast this to the Woven Braided Necklace, a lavish rendition of sterling silver that loops in different sizes and widths, creating a glitzy feel that suits an evening dinner.
John Hardy is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
