Luxury Sustainable Jewels

john-hardy-collection

Green gems are a difficult thing to find but if you look hard enough you can.  John Hardy’s jewelry is one of those finds.  The Canadian born silversmith visited Bali in 1975 and was so impressed with what he saw that he stayed.  To make up for the land he had to clear for his environmentally sustainable design studio and production facility John Hardy turned a portion of the land into an organic farm for his employees and local villagers.   Aside from his involvement in various environmental initiatives John Hardy designs beautiful handcrafted jewelry that blend traditional methods with innovation and recycled precious metals wherever possible.  Prices range from $350 to $12,000 (you can see more about John Hardy’e environmental efforts at Luxist)
