Young Object of Desire ... John Hardy Butterfly Pendant

When I was young, the term designer stuff for kids were rare and uncommon. The only thing that we kids were accustomed to and what we deemed as designer's stuff were the mini-me pieces from Guess Kids or Baby Guess?, Osh Kosh, Levi's (which never made its way here to Malaysia) and a few others that I can't remember.

Only in the recent years, parents have started to shower their kids in luxe and this includes designer gifts that includes the Tiffany & Co.'s sterling silver rattle, exclusive pieces from Escada Kids or Versace kids to name a few. As the spirit of giving and sharing of Christmas is near, then we have something that may be your young uns' object of desire this season. It's the John Hardy Baby Butterfly pendant.

Why do the young ones like it?
As the name and the object suggests, children and butterfly are inseparable. They are the source of imagination and fascination. Even Mariah (Carey) is always fascinated by this flying creature. This piece of treasure is handcrafted in Bali by the renowned jeweler John Hardy.

What features should we look for?
The craftsmanship is second to none, The wings are dotted with dot motifs and it is made from sterling silver and accented with 18-karat gold in the middle. It also has a heart detail on the bail.

With what should I match it?
Any plain clothes will look marvelous whenever you have this piece of art dangling around your neck. You even don't have to be a child to wear it.

And what's the damage for this fluttering art?
For an approximate price of RM709.41, think it as an investment for both fashion and heirloom sake. Besides, butterflies are never out of style.

Where can I catch one with my butterfly net?
You can catch one at John Hardy Jewellery at Parkson KLCC. It's the one and only John Hardy boutique in South East Asia and seriously you don't even need the net to catch it!
