There’s nothing like the energy of New York City – the iconic landmarks, the perpetual motion, the inimitable spirit and unsurpassable style.
This remarkable city, the epicenter of excitement and glamour, has been a source of inspiration for Winston designers since the House first opened its doors in 1932, and today continues to inform its next generation of legendary jewels.
In continuing in this tradition, for its latest collection, Winston designers examined the endless possibilities of the city and embarked on a crosstown journey exploring the various neighborhoods, nuances and landmarks that shaped Mr. Winston’s life. Introducing the New York Collection by Harry Winston.
A bejeweled love letter to the city that never sleeps, the collection is comprised of nine sub-collections, with each celebrating a modern interpretation of the enduring legacy and symbiotic connection to the House’s roots. From the Brownstones of his birthplace on the Upper West Side, to the organic color palette and geometry of Central Park, to the City Lights of the Manhattan skyline, to the striking architecture of its famous Cathedrals, to bustling throughways, and his iconic Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon…this is Harry’s New York.
Demonstrating the unequivocal breadth and creativity of Winston design, each sub-collection presents a distinctively different aesthetic and explores the pioneering craftsmanship and setting techniques the House is best known for.
In Brownstone, a tribute to the beautiful brownstones of the Upper West Side where Harry was born, baguette-cut, round brilliant and marquise shaped diamonds, accented by colorful square-cut gemstones, are artfully arranged in a geometric motif that recalls the stately architecture of Manhattan. Available in two color ways – sugar loaf turquoise with blue sapphires, and a combination of blue and yellow sapphires –the collection is comprised of a long pendant necklace and complementing earrings.
Harry’s first location, as Harry Winston, Inc., was at 7 East 51st Street, directly across from New York’s famed St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Every day, as Harry basked in the rays of his extraordinary jewels, he was graced with an unobstructed view of the impressive neo-gothic structure. Mirroring the perfect proportions, extraordinary workmanship and architectural excellence of St. Patrick’s, the Cathedral Necklace and Earrings highlight the unequivocal beauty of pear-shaped emeralds and celebrate Winston design in its purest form.
