The unique history of Harry Winston
Since launching his first boutique in 1932, Harry Winston has been a legendary figure in the jewelry world. By the 1950s, Winston’s boutiques were the jewelry salon of choice for royals and celebrities alike who appreciated Winston’s passion, eye for design and discretion.
Winston garnered immediate attention in 1935 when he purchased the 726-carat diamond, The Jonker. After taking it on a tour of the USA, it was cut into 13 very important stones. His penchant for acquiring and working with superior diamonds and gemstones from many notable private collections continued through the rest of his career. Today, the name Harry Winston is associated with colored gemstones of the highest quality, along with his unique concept of “clustering,” which became his signature technique.
