XXVI Biennale Des Antiquaires

September 18, 2012

XXVI BIENNALE DES ANTIQUAIRES 

 

The exceptional treasures presented at the XXVI Biennale de Antiquaires highlight the breadth and beauty of Winston designs. Their sense of creative freedom draws inspiration from the beauty of nature – necklaces, bracelets and earrings brought to life, as if propelled by a powerful natural force. Each individual stone is carefully set by hand, lending its own unique beauty and personality to each final composition. Each breathtaking design – from an enchanting diamond wave necklace with an exceptional 60.14-carat (D-IF) pear-cut diamond to a necklace with cascading drops of the deepest blue sapphires -- captures the unmistakable glamour and purity that Harry Winston is known for.

Among the most spectacular creations that traveled to Paris from the legendary workshops on New York’s Fifth Avenue is a new High Jewelry collection dedicated to nature’s most precious elements. Unique in its kind and to be exclusively unveiled at the Biennale des Antiquaires, this collection heralds a new chapter in the history of Harry Winston with extraordinary, newly imagined designs. Featuring fluid lines and pristine purity, this new collection brings high jewelry on a journey to the very heart of nature, experienced in a way that only Harry Winston can offer.

Introducing a Variation of Lily Cluster

June 01, 2012

INTRODUCING A VARIATION OF LILY CLUSTER

An enduring icon of American glamour, the Harry Winston Cluster has been a defining part of the Winston tradition for more than six decades. Dating back to archives from the early 1940s, the refined design draws inspiration from nature: the sculptured geometry of flowers and leaves, and the elegant fluidity with which they take shape.

Winston’s Lily Cluster Collection explores these early cluster drawings from the archives, reinterpreting the iconic Cluster motif through a unique, contemporary perspective. Recalling the shape of lilies in bloom, the collection presents a charming bouquet of personal, daytime diamond jewels – pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings, and hair barrettes - in yellow gold and platinum.

In Spring 2012, the Lily Cluster Collection continues to blossom with the introduction of an extended series of earrings and pendants, in a delicate new proportion. Crafted with round diamonds, the ethereal, yet dimensional design allows for the expression of a timeless style, no matter the occasion or the hour.

Harry Winston Shanghai Pavilion

April 27, 2012

HARRY WINSTON SHANGHAI PAVILION

 

Opened in April 2012, located in Shanghai’s prestigious Xintiandi district, the freestanding salon represents Harry Winston’s first retail Pavilion in the world and provides a 360-degree view of the new, groundbreaking architectural space design. The Pavilion’s grand exterior combines references to Harry Winston’s historic architectural elements with traditional Shanghai architecture. Like a brilliant diamond window, a wall of faceted misted-gold glass wraps around the Pavilion providing glimpses of the magnificent collections displayed inside. The interior layout is organized around a soaring two-story atrium that welcomes guests into the stunning world of Harry Winston. A faceted glass skylight and custom tiered drop chandelier illuminate the space with a softer, natural light. A charcoal grey and white starburst marble floor and antique Maison Jansen accents recall Harry Winston’s historic Fifth Avenue headquarters (designed by Jansen in 1960).

Introducing Belle by Harry Winston

April 09, 2012

INTRODUCING BELLE BY HARRY WINSTON

 

Introducing Belle by Harry Winston, a new Bridal Collection inspired by the origin of the House’s most timeless tradition.

Named in homage to the Arabella “Belle” Huntington estate, the first major estate purchase that launched Harry Winston's early career, Belle by Harry Winston pays tribute to our enduring love affair with brilliant jewels, and commitment to the highest quality craftsmanship and design, through a line of exquisite engagement rings, wedding bands, pendants and earrings.

Echoing the antique charm of estate jewels, the collection’s stunning geometric bezel is hand-set with diamond micropavé and elegantly frames a round brilliant center stone. Each diamond is selected by hand and graded by our discerning experts to ensure it meets the same quality standards as the center stone (D-E-F in color, and VS2 or higher in clarity). Ensuring the grace and harmony synonymous with Harry Winston standards, every setting is constructed by hand from platinum using a minimal amount of metal in order to maximize the fire, brilliance and scintillation of each individual stone.

The Harry Winston Hope Collection Bracelet

 

Harry Winston, Inc., the American fine diamond jeweler and watchmaker, announces the launch of the Harry Winston Hope Collection™ Bracelet, a new philanthropic initiative to support leading charitable organizations throughout the United States.


Launching fall 2012, the limited edition bracelet features a sleek white gold and engraved mother-of-pearl design set with a delicate Winston diamond at the center. Retailing for $2,500, the bracelet will be sold exclusively at Harry Winston retail salons with 200 bracelets available throughout the U.S. Harry Winston, Inc. will donate 100% of the retail sales price* from each bracelet to the following seven organizations across the U.S. chosen for their philanthropic leadership and support of local communities where Winston salons are based:


• New York - The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
• Beverly Hills - The Help Group
• Chicago - A Better Chicago
• Costa Mesa - Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC)
• Bal Harbour - Voices For Children Foundation
• Las Vegas - Keep Memory Alive
• Honolulu - The Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific Foundation

The first official charitable product from the company, the initiative represents the next step in Harry Winston’s longstanding commitment to supporting local communities, a tradition that began with the company’s founder Mr. Harry Winston. From 1949 – 1953, Harry Winston organized an exhibition known as “The Court of Jewels,” which toured to key cities across America raising money for local charitable causes. At the heart of the exhibition was the Hope Diamond, a 45.52 carat deep blue diamond, considered to be one of the rarest and most famous diamonds in the world. In 1958, Mr. Winston donated the Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. as a gift to the world.

Inspired by Mr. Winston’s generosity, in November 2010, Harry Winston, Inc. launched a new philanthropic platform, The Harry Winston Brilliant Futures™ Charitable Program. Within this program, the company remains dedicated to supporting leading organizations around the globe that strive to remove barriers for disadvantaged youth to obtain a quality education and the skills necessary to be successful in life; provide access to cultural and artistic enrichment; and enable healthy futures.

“Two years ago we renewed Harry Winston’s commitment to giving back by launching a new charitable program, dedicated to inspiring hope in the lives of others around the world. We are proud to begin the next chapter of this commitment through the launch of The Harry Winston Hope Collection. This collection represents a full pledge on our part to provide long standing support to organizations that are meaningful to our local communities, and like our founder, reflects our belief that hope is the key to building brilliant futures.” - Frédéric de Narp, President and CEO of Harry Winston, Inc.
