He then improves with Harry Winston, another name of New York luxury élite.

One new feature that was introduced is customer service even at home or in the office. For those who are very busy is a nice convenience the jeweler who comes to you at home or at work. Julius Cohen died in 1995, the Maison was continued by his son in law, Leslie Steinweiss, who had joined in 1975 as creative director.
