Emerald-cut diamonds might be enjoying a big moment now but they’ve always held a special place in Harry Winston’s heart of hearts—since the 1930s, as a matter of fact, when the American jeweller got his start. Today, you see it all around the Harry Winston universe. From the elegant vitrines of its Fifth Avenue salon to the many diamond solitaires in its showcases; from the chic and contemporary HW Logo collection to the graceful and refined Harry Winston Emerald model in 18mm, which delivers a splash of vivacious colours worn on playful double twirl straps.
Coming just in time for the festive season, they’ve also managed to uncover a different side of the petite yet distinctive Harry Winston Emerald timepiece, adding a dose of fun and effervescence to get anyone into the spirit of Christmas.
Icy cool turquoise is ready to steal the spotlight; bright and bold orange brings a sizzling touch; deep aubergine purple exudes all the right fall/winter vibes; and light champagne is everything we love about year-end celebrations with family and friends. Meanwhile, pretty baby blues and pinks, as well as classics and neutrals such as royal blue, white, and black, remain strong staples within the collection.
These captivating hues extend from the soft satin straps into the dials, matched perfectly in shimmering mother-of-pearl reminiscent of effervescent bubbles. Here’s also where the watch got its bubbly persona courtesy of the 20 brilliant-cut diamonds and mother-of-pearl cabochons in varying sizes set onto the dial. Nestling alongside delicate mother-of-pearl cabochon beads, they are joined by a further 53 brilliant-cut diamonds set around the white gold case, plus 11 more on the clasp. Precious yet also delightfully unique, this scintillating dial design helps distinguish the 2021 Harry Winston Emerald novelties from earlier models.
One constant in this collection, though, is the Harry Winston emblem crafted in 18K gold echoing the shape of the watch case and tying everything back to its founder’s historical fascination with—and exceptional eye for—timeless aesthetics.
