John Hardy Dayak Jewelry Collection
Embrace your inner Shaman as you explore the tribal world of the Indonesian interior, as evoked by John Hardy’s Dayak Jewelry Collection. Inspired by the native rituals of the Dayak people, these rings, bracelets, and cufflinks honor their traditions of carving, etching, and tattooing. The intensely masculine Dayak Silver Band strikingly contrasts carved sterling silver against a dark background of gritty texture. The sleek and enigmatic Palu Dayak Silver Band inverts and softens the pattern, as a jagged dark stream courses across delicately hammered metal. Bracelets in the collection incorporate nylon cords in black, red, and bright blue—each one accented by stations intriguingly marked with tribal motifs, like a secret calligraphy. Leather bracelets in black and navy blue strips, secured by an imposing silver hook, are one of the collection’s standouts.
