The Cinta, which means “love” in the Indonesian language, is a collection of John Hardy’s finest haute joaillerie pieces. The Bali-based brand is a world-renowned jewelry manufacturer distinctive in its rare Asian inspired designs and affinity to the protection and preservation of the environment. The Pura Naga Sea Gold is a Cinta necklace made of 18k gold and sterling silver with a pendant elaborately fashioned into a sinuous figure of the Naga – Bali’s mythical dragon that symbolizes love, prosperity and protection. The Naga is beautifully encrusted with a myriad of yellow sapphires, brown diamonds, red spinel, on its body’s detailed engraving especially handcrafted by John Hardy artisans. Two elegant golden South Sea Pearls take central stage in the necklace – an ode to the Indonesian tale of love and sacrifice regarding the cosmic dragon and his beloved pearl. The Pura Naga, literally “the dragon’s palace”, is an extravagant expression of love both in essence and form.
