You don’t need to be a jewellery expert to know that the sight of Harry Winston’s iconic blue boxes is guaranteed to send hearts racing. Since 1932, when the house was founded in New York by the eponymous Mr Winston, it has been synonymous with exquisite diamonds and exceptional craftsmanship. So, when it comes to buying the most important gift you’ll ever give, why would you settle for anything but a Harry Winston engagement ring?
An engagement ring is not only a precious symbol of your love but the marker of a new chapter in your unique story. A lifelong representation of your fairytale romance. And, just as every couple is individual, Harry Winston believes no two diamonds are the same, treating each as the rare, exceptional and beautiful treasure it is. After all, would you expect anything less from the ‘King of Diamonds’?
And, with more than nine decades of expertise, Harry Winston’s engagement ring knowledge is practically unparalleled. Just as every successful couple is the product of the friends, family and loved ones who have supported them along the way, so an elegant engagement ring is the result of a team of skilled jewellery experts, each adding their own knowledge and talent to create a finished piece that is truly superlative.
There are the diamond experts that select only the finest rare diamonds of top clarity and colour. There are the designers who create show-stopping settings that showcase the round, cushion, emerald, oval and pear-shaped cuts for maximum brilliance. And then there are the setters, who put their exceptional craftsmanship to use creating finished pieces in precious platinum.
So now you know the philosophy, it’s time for the fun bit: choosing the perfect ring. Allow us to present a selection of styles they’ll love for a long, happy lifetime.
The name says it all really, doesn’t it? Dazzling yet delicate, The One sees a central round, cushion or oval-cut diamond surrounded by a halo of micropavé diamonds and set on a micropavé platinum band. It may sound like a lot of diamond (and it is) but thanks to the lightness of touch and timeless techniques used by Harry Winston’s craftspeople, the effect is one of elegance, femininity and romance.
The One Double Halo
Think The One won’t be quite sparkly enough to satisfy the magpie in your life? Allow us to point you in the direction of The One Double Halo. Utilising the same micropavé techniques as The One, the double halo features a large round central diamond ringed by two rows of smaller diamonds, creating the illusion of a burst of the diamonds floating above a diamond-set platinum band. Utterly mesmerising.
Something for the modern bride-to-be, Brilliant Love showcases the purity and endless glamour of a solitaire diamond. A single round brilliant diamond is suspended between Harry Winston’s signature split-prongs while a band set with 24 further round brilliant diamonds features a cut-down shank to soften the ring’s silhouette. This is a family heirloom in the making.
If your beloved is partial to all things vintage, Belle’s Art Deco-inspired profile is guaranteed to win her heart. Named for the original estate that began Harry Winston’s career, it oozes antique charm, with a central round brilliant diamond framed by a geometric bezel hand-set with micropavé diamonds. Also featuring a cut-down diamond-set platinum band, metal use is kept to a minimum to ensure every diamond is as radiant as possible.
