"Timeless" and "meticulously crafted" describe the Bali-inspired Cinta collection by jewelry artist John Hardy. Monique Lhuillier incorporated the collection into her spring 2009 show, accenting her high-fashion wedding gowns with select pieces. Richmond brides may want to re-create such a fusion of jewelry and dress. In October 2008, Fink's at Short Pump Town Center hosted Guy Bedarida, John Hardy's head designer and creative director. At the event, Bedarida showed pieces from the company's fall collection and met local fans — the most rewarding part of his work, he says: "There is so much to learn from them." Contact Fink's (finks.com) for more information. Saks Fifth Avenue (320-6960, saksfifthavenue.com) carries both John Hardy pieces and Monique Lhuillier couture, while Bella Rosa (360-8120, bellarosabridal.com) stocks Monique Lhuillier.
