The festivities surrounding Chinese New Year may be over, but 2012 is definitely the Year of the Dragon (as evidenced by the dramatic increase in weddings and baby bumps lately). If you'd like to have a little luck rubbed off on yourself, check out the dragon-inspired Naga collection by luxury jewellery brand John Hardy.
Men in jewellery is always a tricky subject, but the dragon motif from the Naga collection will definitely keep your masculinity in check. We like the silver black or white woven leather dragon bracelet (HK$3,800 each) for a casual everyday look, while the dragon head bracelet on an extra-large rectangular chain from the Spring 2012 collection clearly says "don't mess."
From the women's Spring 2012 John Hardy collection, the dragon slim kick cuff is a delicate way to wear the scaly creature, while the dragon head rings in silver and gold or gold with white sapphire, both with red rubies as the fiery eyes, will be bound to get everyone's with every hand gesture you make.
John Hardy has also created two exclusive Naga bracelets just for the Hong Kong market, including one made of black onyx and black sapphire, and the other of reconstructed coral and red sapphire.
All John Hardy pieces are individually handcrafted and if you don't believe it, see the intricate craftsmanship for yourself at Lane Crawford or the John Hardy store at The Landmark.
