Did you know? Harry Winston is known as “King of Diamonds”!

Harry Winston has a storied history of acquiring some of the world's most legendary and valuable diamonds. Renowned for his impeccable taste and discerning eye for exceptional gems, Winston established himself as one of the most prominent figures in the world of high jewelry.

One of Winston's most celebrated acquisitions is the Hope Diamond, a breathtaking blue diamond steeped in history and mystique. Weighing an impressive 45.52 carats, the Hope Diamond is renowned for its rare deep blue color and extraordinary size. Winston acquired the diamond in 1949 and showcased it in his renowned Fifth Avenue salon, where it captivated audiences with its dazzling beauty.

In addition to the Hope Diamond, Winston acquired several other iconic diamonds that have become synonymous with his legacy. Among these is the Taylor-Burton Diamond, a magnificent pear-shaped gem weighing an astounding 69.42 carats. Acquired by Winston in 1969, the Taylor-Burton Diamond gained international fame when it was purchased by actor Richard Burton as a gift for his wife, Elizabeth Taylor.

Another notable acquisition by Winston is the Jonker Diamond, a remarkable 726-carat rough diamond discovered in South Africa. Winston purchased the Jonker Diamond in 1935 and subsequently commissioned his master craftsmen to expertly cut and polish the gem into 13 exquisite diamonds, each possessing exceptional clarity and brilliance.

These extraordinary diamonds served as the inspiration for some of Winston's most iconic jewelry creations, showcasing his unparalleled craftsmanship and design expertise. From dazzling necklaces to stunning earrings, each piece bearing the Harry Winston name represents the pinnacle of luxury and elegance.

With a keen eye for exceptional gems and a commitment to unparalleled quality, Harry Winston continues to uphold his legacy as the "King of Diamonds," leaving an indelible mark on the world of high jewelry for generations to come when he says,
