What is sustainable luxury?Updated 3 months ago

Sustainable luxury means creating beauty that endures, while leaving a positive impact on the world. It's about creating those products with a deep respect for the environment and the artisans who make them. 


John Hardy is a certified member of the Responsible Jewellery Council as well as being compliant to the Kimberly Process. John Hardy is committed to codes of practice that ensure our stones, diamonds and metals are conflict-free and ethically produced every step of the way. We also work with suppliers who guarantee that the silver and gold we use in our pieces is reclaimed, reducing the need to mine for metals.


The same sense of responsibility is applied to our packaging. From our jewelry boxes to our shopping bags, all paper materials are now certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, a non-profit that manages the environmental and economic benefits of trees. We are also working towards eliminating the use of paper bags, as we strive to find more ways to be sustainable.


Our “Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo” initiative, in partnership with the Environmental Bamboo Foundation, is committed to offsetting our carbon footprint and providing local communities with training on the benefits of growing bamboo as well as sustainable farming. This means every time you shop from our Bamboo Collection, we plant bamboo seedlings in Bali on your behalf.


Our John Hardy Workshop and Kapal Bamboo boutique were also built from low-impact green materials, notably bamboo, and were constructed in such a way that the land can be returned to rice fields within three months.
