The bamboo jewlery collection from John Hardy is designed to raise awareness about the need to be mindful about sustainability in our daily practices, as well as our fashion choices. The Bamboo Collection consists of a series of rings, bangles, earrings and necklaces that are shaped after the distinctive bamboo plant. However, rather than being crafted from the actual plant, this collection boasts "sustainable luxury," with the inclusion of precious materials like 18K gold, sterling silver, diamonds and black sapphires.

A portion of the proceeeds from sales of the bangles, rings, earrings and necklaces from the Bamboo Collection is put towards planting bamboo seedlings in Bali, which is where the collection of decadent jewelry is handmade.
