Creating Brilliant Jewels from precious stones, as nature supplies them, is an extraordinary art unto
itself. Modern jewelers, as with their predecessors, must possess not only a sound knowledge of the
finest materials, but the creative curiosity and technical virtuosity to awaken in each gem an un-
imagined brilliance.
Since 1932, the enlightening charm of the jeweler’s art has been the pulsating beat behind of each and every Harry
Winston creation. Together with his designers and master craftsmen, our founder, Mr. Winston, changed the way that
fine jewelry could be worn by pioneering gem setting techniques that gave diamonds dimension and allowed stones to
sparkle from every angle.
Envisioning jewels as the ultimate accompaniment to a woman’s beauty, Mr. Winston once famously stated, “If I could, I
would attach the diamonds directly onto a woman’s skin.” And as if the gemstones were woven right onto the wearer, his
jewels achieved an unimagined movement and grace, caressing the skin like the most decadent array of faceted fabrics.
Through its latest collection of incredible jewels, the House of Harry Winston arrives one step closer to achieving Mr.
Winston’s ultimate dream to one day dress a woman purely in in diamonds, while exploring the art behind our most time-
honored traditions of craftsmanship and design.
Entitled Ultimate Adornments by HarryWinston, this incredible array of spectacular designs envisions the international
art of dressing a woman in the unique style that onlyHarryWinston can. In creating this exceptional collection, theHarry
Winston Design Team returned to the archives for inspiration, including the works Ambaji V. Shinde, Mr. Winston’s
chief jewelry designer for more than 40 years (1962-2001). One of Mr. Shinde’s greatest contributions to the house was
his ability to examine the world around him, and translate it into extraordinary jewels. Infusing his own Indian heritage
into his designs, Mr. Shinde’s unique international perspective continues to define Winston style today, and serves as the
creative catalyst behind this impressive collection.
Hand crafted entirely in diamonds and platinum, the 40-piece collection is presented through seven distinctly different
themes, each recalling unique adornments from around the world.
