Harry Winston was an American jeweler. Following his father’s, Jacob, footsteps who opened a jewelry business when immigrated from Ukraine, Harry opened his own business in 1920 with his first store opening in New York City in 1932.
The ultimate expression of true love, Harry Winston Engagement Rings feature rare diamonds selected from only the top color (D, E, and F) and clarity grades (Flawless – VS2) expertly set in platinum to create a superlative engagement ring that shines with maximum brilliance. Set in a delicate, feminine design, each diamond engagement ring is meticulously hand-crafted, to highlight the diamond’s graceful beauty. Harry Winston was considered the ‘King of Diamonds’ since he owned Hope Diamond & Jonker Diamond.
In 1940s, Harry Winston and his designers developed the cluster technique where the style of the piece is based on the individual diamond rather than the metal setting, maximizing the brilliance of the stone. This design continues today, over 70 years later.
