Harry Winston reinvents its trademark designsBy Carmencita S. Sioson

Harry Winston’s rich history coupled with the formidable relationship among its gemologists, craftsmen and designers is the luxury brand’s perennial formula for success.
Each creation begins with a study of the gemstones and is treated not only like fine jewelry, but also like fine art that’s meant to be cherished for a lifetime.
Fueled by its rich heritage, the brand shapes the future by reinterpreting its iconic creations like the cluster design. The motif, which dazzles with over 150 carats of round, pear and marquise-shaped diamonds in the legendary Wreath Necklace, is presented in a number of ways this season.
Harry Winston reworks the classic motif for daytime jewelry through the Lily Cluster collection, which includes earrings, bracelets, rings and dainty hair barrettes lavishly adorned with round diamonds.
Reminiscent of stars sparkling in the sky, the Nightlife collection also showcases the cluster design with long intricate drop earrings.
Harry Winston’s diamond-driven style continues to inspire contemporary yet elegant creations like the brand’s latest timepieces, adding glamour to quintessential horology since 1989.
Meticulously handmade with 57 carats of the finest gems, Cluster of Time shows a new way to wear a watch through its dimensional pendant design with a pear-shaped dial covered with diamonds.
Building on the brand’s heritage
Adhering to its ideology of remaining true to the spirit of the brand, Harry Winston maintains both the technical and aesthetic quality of its gem-set watches.
From the New York-inspired Avenue collection festooned with paved diamonds and mother-of-pearl to the Ultimate Adornment Timepiece, which is decorated with 16 marquise-cut, a single pear-cut, and 42 brilliant-cut diamonds and can be worn as a brooch or a pendant, the brand proves its ability to reinvent its traditional codes.
As Harry Winston seeks to share the spirit of its founder through its precious creations, the brand continues to celebrate life’s meaningful moments with its bridal offerings like classic micropavé cushion-cut and oval-shaped engagement rings and unique designs like the HW, which has a brilliant diamond poised between the brand’s initials.
Building on Harry Winston’s heritage while adapting to the changing times, the brand also transforms its trademark designs into whimsical add-ons.
The Charms collection crafted in platinum or yellow gold, includes five unique designs: logo which features Harry Winston’s iconic symbol; solitaire which reinterprets the HW engagement ring; loop which recalls the pear-shaped cut of the brand’s iconic gems; lucky eight which is inspired by Chinese culture; and peony which reflects the founder’s fascination with nature.
With modern inspirations fused with the brand’s inimitable roots, Harry Winston translates the beauty and diversity of the world into wearable works of art.
