Harry Winston at the Biennale

Harry Winston mandarin garnet and diamond necklace

Harry Winston, the American in Paris, is no stranger to this city and has had a boutique here since 1957 and first showed at the Biennale in 1974. This year the house looks back into its archives for designs that never made it beyond the drawing board, particularly those that use bright, coloured stones and none more so than the stunning mandarin garnet in the necklace above.  The collection is called "Royal Gardens" and pays homage to Mr Winston's love of Paris. To help place the collection think a retro elegance a la Mad Men with lots of ice. Here are some sketches of the jewels that will help you visualise the treats that Mr Winston has up his sleeve.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
