“Talk to me, Harry Winston, tell me all about it,” Marilyn Monroe famously sang in the ’50s film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. And when it comes to sumptuous wedding rings crafted from top-drawer gemstones, Harry Winston no doubt has plenty to say. After all, it’s not for nothing that Mr Winston was widely considered the “King of Diamonds,” or that his eponymous house played not-so-small in the romance between Jacqueline Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis, and Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony (ill-fated though the latter was).
This Fall, the New York-based jeweller continues to celebrate this symbol of love and dedication by shining a spotlight on a handful (a fingerful?) of contemporary classics from its HW Logo collection, which, as its name might suggest, honours the insignia of the luxury house.
Take, for example, the HW Logo engagement ring, an exceptional interpretation of the diamond solitaire that avails of Harry Winston’s signature platinum setting — wherein a minimal amount of metal is used to maximise the fire and brilliance of each gem — to accentuate a brilliant-cut centre stone of 0.5, 0.7 or 1.0 carat. Adding a touch of character are the logotypes “H” and “W” that flank either side of the scintillating diamond, and represent not only the brand’s initials, but also the titles of husband and wife.
The HW Logo band ring, meanwhile, highlights Harry Winston’s octagonal emblem in a next-gen iteration of the traditional wedding token. Recalling the structural silhouette of Mr Winston’s preferred emerald cut, the distinctive lozenge has stamped the label’s creations for over five decades, and here, it graces a number of youthful but sophisticated wedding bands in 18-karat white, rose and yellow gold. Arriving in two variations, one set with a single precious stone and the other studded with 33 brilliant-cut diamonds, this style can be worn alone or stacked according to the individual taste of its wearer.
Elevating the experience even further, Harry Winston is set to host a series of bridal seminars at its ION Orchard Salon from September 23 to October 17, where soon-to-wed couples will be treated to a private tea party and a bridal pairing session, as well as complimentary engraving services and an exclusive gift.
