Seven dazzling rings in Harry Winston’s Legacy collection

Beauty and grace: the Legacy diamond at the Harry Winston workshop

An ultra-exclusive collection of pieces from Harry Winston’s Legacy diamond pays homage to the heritage of the luxury brand

For more than 80 years, the house of Harry Winston has been synonymous with the most beautiful jewels in the world, building on a heritage established by its founder – a man known as the “King of Diamonds”, such was his passion for precious stones. 

Now, that legacy is being celebrated with an extraordinary new collection of high jewellery that has been in the making for three years. It is inspired by the remarkable Winston Legacy diamond, purchased by the house in 2013 and named in tribute to the company’s founder. Christie’s Auction house described the large, flawless pear shaped gem – discovered in Jwaneng Mine, Botswana, and cut and polished for nearly two years before being put on sale – as “the most perfect diamond ever on offer for sale at auction”.

The rarity, beauty and grace of the stone was the starting point for the 22 new one-off pieces, made up of 11 necklaces, seven rings and four pairs of earrings. 

Each of the magnificent pieces was hand drawn by the house’s renowned designers, including the much-loved late senior designer, Maurice Galli, and hand-crafted in the workshop above Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Salon. They incorporate traditional aspects of Harry Winston design, while referencing the clean lines and perfect fluidity of the Winston Legacy Diamond.

The collection is unprecedented in scale and quality, and is one that will delight jewellery connoisseurs. Winston himself would have been proud of it.
