The Sweet Surprise Behind The Harry Winston Jewellery Collection

Harry Winston has become famous all over the world for its incredible diamond jewellery – Harry himself was known as the ‘King of Diamonds’. The usually monochrome jewellery of the house was traditionally only dappled with sapphires, emeralds, rubies and a smattering of other coloured gemstones – if any. However, the designers of the house decided to offer Harry Winston clientèle something new, presenting a jewellery collection of cocktail rings in every colour of the rainbow.

The jewellery design was based around unusual combinations of different gems, and the monetary value was not the deciding factor when the stones were being selected. As such, in the ‘Winston Candy’ jewellery collection, there are stones such as peridots and turquoise which are not considered precious stones of high value – but without them, it would have been impossible to achieve the desired contrast with other gemstones in the collection, nor the interplay of colours which these gems provide.

In ‘Winston Candy’, Harry Winston once again demonstrates its expertise in selecting the highest standards of gems.

Viewing the jewellery collection as a whole, it’s clear that the current jewellery trend in using bright gemstones in high jewellery art and the growing popularity of the spinel have not been lost on Harry Winston’s designers. In one ring, a glistening cushion-cut purple spinel weighing 17.29 carats sparkled, and in another an 8.34-carat blue spinel, and in yet another a 16.32-carat red spinel.

The inspiration for Winston Candy jewellery collection, as is so often the case for Harry Winston collections, was a series of sketches dating back to the 1950s and 60s. At that time, jewellery was something that allowed owners to demonstrate their own style and grandeur through a visual medium, and for Harry Winston, this meant bold, intriguing colour combinations and volumes in their jewellery – the sketches contained pictures of cocktail rings with brightly coloured stones in unusual shades.

Special attention was paid to the harmony of gemstone shades, the unique combination of different cuts in a single ring, the observation of shapes and volumes in the proportion of each ring. The result, of course, satisfies the most discerning of tastes, by combining delightful gems with the execution of a delightful skill.
