The city of New York turns into a sparkling collection of other jewelry with Harry Winston ♦ ︎
New York, New York: in addition to being the title of the famous song, the American city was the subject of films, novels and works of art. And now also a collection of fine jewelry. New York is the protagonist of the 32-piece collection signed by Harry Winston, one of the jewelers that most identifies with the city.
The jewels of the New York collection are inspired by architecture, but also by sounds and panoramas of the city.
But be careful: do not think about finding jewels with icons that are so popular with tourists, like the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. New York is seen, instead, through situations and details related to the history or taste of the founder of the Maison: for example, the eagles of cast iron that in the early twentieth century were used as a frieze for street lamps are transformed into jewels of the Eagle line, with shape of wings made up of diamonds. Throughout the collection there are eight different lines of jewels.
City Lights is obviously inspired by the bright lights of Broadway with jewels that use precious stones: emeralds, rubies, sapphires.
Brownstone alludes to the sandstone used in the Upper West Side, the neighborhood where Winston was born, and in this case the jewels have angular baguette diamonds arranged in a sparkling pendant necklace and chandelier pendent earrings. The turquoise and sapphire blue sugar pan version of each (also available in blue and sapphire yellow) winks at the Art Deco architecture found elsewhere in the city. Or the 718 line, which is the street number of Fifth Avenue where the Harry Winston flagship store is located. In short, it is a way to visit the city certainly fascinating. Giulia Netrese
