Winston Candy Shop
While Mr. Winston was known as the “King of Diamonds,” his insatiable obsession for gems went beyond just colorless beauties and he often sought out stones that resembled brilliantly hued candies for some of his most precious designs.
Behind the Design
The inspiration for the collection began with a series of archival sketches from the 1950s and 60s that featured brightly colored cocktail rings in unexpected shades. The jewelry aesthetic at that time was about magnificence and grandeur and for Harry Winston that meant creating the most extraordinary jewels, using signature techniques such as the pairing of fancy shaped stones with round brilliants and the use of intriguing color combinations. Realizing the potential of these incredible renderings, Winston Designers sought to create modern interpretations that recall the sophistication of a bygone era.
