Winston Candy by Harry Winston
Exploring the candy-colored world of extraordinary gems, the House of Harry Winston presents a sweet series of one-of-a-kind cocktail rings that underscore the House’s longstanding commitment to the rarest, most exceptional jewels of the world.
Entitled Winston Candy, the collection features fancy-colored center stones paired with a combination of diamonds and vibrant gems in complementing shades. Selected for their inherent beauty, these magnificent stones are superior amongst others in its family and exemplify the extraordinary qualities synonymous with Harry Winston. From the finest mandarin garnets, to rare tourmalines, to pastel sapphires, and lively spinels this one-of-a-kind presentation features the most irresistible ingredients and celebrates vibrant jewels that are unrivaled in color, quality and scale.
The inspiration for the collection began with a series of archival sketches dating back to the 1950s and 60s that featured brightly colored cocktail rings in unexpected shades. The jewelry aesthetic at that time was about magnificence and grandeur and for Harry Winston that meant creating the most extraordinary jewels, using signature techniques such as the pairing of fancy shaped stones with round brilliants and the use of intriguing color combinations. While Mr. Winston was known as the “King of Diamonds,” his insatiable obsession for gems went beyond just colorless beauties and he often sought out stones that resembled brilliantly hued candies for some of his most precious designs.
Realizing the potential of these incredible renderings, Winston Designers embarked on a fantastical journey to create modern interpretations that examine the bold use of color, dimensionality, proportions and varied stone-cutting techniques. Each design recalls the sophistication of a bygone era and magically transforms nature’s most delightful elements into bejeweled confections that demand attention. In a true collaboration of efforts, Harry Winston masterfully assembled a team of experts, who worked hand-in-hand for more than one year, to curate a delectable collection that would satisfy any jewelry connoisseur’s sweetest cravings.
Bringing a sweet perspective to signature Winston Design, the House will continue to introduce new designs into its Winston Candy portfolio.
