Synopsis

A look through the sparkling history of Harry Winston, “King of Diamonds.”
 
From the legacy of the Hope Diamond to “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”, and from runways and red carpets to presidential inaugural balls, Harry Winston jewels are icons of international glamour. Harry Winston opened his doors in New York in 1932 and soon rose to the top of the international diamond industry. Winston revolutionized modern jewelry design by buying great collections of estate jewels and transforming precious stones into jewelry pieces that appealed to contemporary customers. This book showcases Winston’s most exquisite jewels and jewelry in captivating advertising campaigns, historic images, and celebrity photos, as well as showing the important stones with which the company has worked, including the Hope, Lesotho, and Vargas diamonds. Featuring archival and contemporary jewels and watches—displayed on beauties such as Elizabeth Taylor, Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry and, of course, Marilyn Monroe—this book presents some of the most breathtaking jewel creations and timepieces in history.
