Secrets by Harry Winston is the title of the latest collection from the legendary eponymous Jewellery House. It is dedicated to Mr Winston himself, the brand’s founder, who was a man of many secrets, from the diamonds he carried hidden deep within his pockets; to the private vault concealed within his office walls, where he kept his most spectacular treasures; to his inimitable ability to decipher a rough diamond’s hidden brilliance by simply holding it in his hands.
At first glance, the collection is an exquisite example of the House’s most celebrated designs and techniques presented through distinctly different themes. The jewellery is designed from platinum and incrusted with diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies, with the collection featuring earrings, bracelets and necklaces under four titles: Secret Cluster, Secret Wonder, Secret Combination and Secret Message.
But behind the brilliance of each gleaming gem, there is more than meets the eye. Each of 29 unique piece contains an incredible secret – a true hidden gem, waiting to be revealed.
For instance, a combination necklace can be worn several different ways, from a low-key but still impressive diamond line necklace to several cascading layers of shimmer, floating delicately on its wearer’s neck. Another surprising element is a touch of color found in a bracelet and earrings that go from all-white diamond to reveal precious stones including emeralds and sapphires. But the true highlight? A perfume bottle encased in diamonds on a diamond chain. Which one is your favorite?
