The Naga Slim cuff by John Hardy is a symbol of love, prosperity and protection. This piece is from John Hardy’s Naga Collection which is a part of the Fall ’14 campaign. A campaign featuring Cara Delevigne, who FYI looks flawless with the Naga Slim cuffs.
The Naga collection brings to life the Balinese legend of the dragon, a revered mythological creature symbolizing prosperity and good luck. In these legends, the dragon is known as the lover of the pearl and must dive from his volcano-top home to sea to visit his love. Each morning when he returns, his path brings water through the rice fields. The water produces a bountiful rice harvest, supporting the Balinese farmer.
So not only the Dragon design is interesting but the story behind it is as much fascinating as the piece itself.
