The HW Logo charm celebrates the founder's legacy. Known as the King of Diamonds, throughout his lifetime, Mr. Winston, owned some of the most famous diamonds in the world, from the Hope Diamond, to the Jonker, to the Lesotho. Often purchasing them as rough diamonds, he and his expert cutters worked together to transform them into refined, polished stones of legendary scale and sparkle. Of all the shapes, Mr. Winston particularly favored the sophistication and strength of the emerald-cut diamond, which remains the logo of the House of Harry Winston today.
My favourite is the "H.W." Diamond Engagement Ring. Reduced to doll-like proportions a brilliant diamond is poised between the Harry Winston's initials: "H.W." The Loop charm recalls the pear- shaped cut of several of Harry Winston's most legendary gems. From the dazzling Taylor-Burton diamond to the storied Indore Pears, the pear shaped stone has inspired signature Winston design for nearly a century. The Harry Winston Loop Collection re-imagines this iconic cut, in pavé diamonds. Inspired by Chinese culture, Harry Winston transforms the number "8" -a symbol of fortune and good luck in China - into an cute little charm while the peony will appeal to those who love flowers and the significance of the flower will not be lost on the Asians.
