Harry Winston's one-of-a-kind jewellery box

In collaboration with industrial designer Stephen Burks, Harry Winston has created the coolest jewellery box on the planet out of a single piece of quartz.

A space-age pod carved out of a single piece of transparent quartz, Harry Winston's latest creation is quite possibly the coolest jewellery box on the planet. Commissioned by Wallpaper Magazine to craft an object for its annual Handmade issue, Harry Winston teamed up with artist Stephen Burks, one of the most respected industrial designers of his generation, to create something completely unique. The result is this one-of-a-kind objet d'art - the woven effect revealing glimpses of the treasures contained within.     

 "When Wallpaper Magazine asked Harry Winston to take part in its Handmade Exhibition [at Gallery Leclettico in Milan until 13 April], we wanted to use the occasion to create something that was entirely new and unexpected for the House," says Sandrine de Laage, Global Vice President and Art Director for Harry Winston, Inc. "We instantly fell in love with the idea of creating a jewellery box that was just as rare, and precious, as our diamonds."

There will be no rifling through this box to locate those earrings buried at the bottom. Instead, each piece of jewellery nestles in its own custom-designed stand, which sits atop a crystal tray through which you can see the hand-carved latticework of the case. We'd love to know whose dressing table it will be gracing once the exhibition is over.

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.
