means love in Indonesian. It is billed to be the rarest collection of John Hardy
. The creation of this collection started with John Hardy, the company’s founder asked Head Designer Guy Bedarida
to create a special gift for his wife in 2002. Since then, it became a regular tradition that Bedarida
designs pieces for John Hardy’s wife and others took note and began asking for their own pieces too. Each Cinta
piece is unique as it is designed around a special shell or unusual stone that Bedarida
has found during his travels. Bedarida
is even known to play matchmaker with the pieces as he pairs them with the appropriate owner. The Cinta
Collection houses pieces such as the Salatiga
– a pendant of sterling silver and 18 karat gold that features a glassfilled
Ruby clasped by a masterfully carved Naga
, the cosmic dragon bringing happiness and prosperity.
