An Exquisite Harry Winston Emerald and Diamond Necklace
Vintage platinum diamond and Colombian emerald necklace, weighing 16 carats of diamonds and 75 carats of emerald, signed Harry Winston, circa 1970s.
Handcrafting impeccable jewels around the world’s most beautiful diamonds has been a tradition at the House of Harry Winston since it was founded in 1932. The ultimate treasures, each piece of vintage jewelry has its own unique story and provenance – a living history, told through the world’s rarest and most extraordinary gems.
Vintage Harry Winston jewels are a reminder of their founder’s legacy and represent the exquisite quality and pioneering craftsmanship that defines the House’s inimitable and unsurpassed style. Today, the Harry Winston Estate Department continues to preserve the House’s exceptional heritage by repurchasing some of our most beloved vintage designs from family estates.
Edmond Avakian, who founded the house in 1969, studied to be an engineer but later decided that his true passion lay in jewelry. Bringing his engineering mindset to the design of jewels, the first word that came to him was “movement”. Today, spinning, twirling and swinging are trademark features of Avakian jewels and nowhere is this better demonstrated with such panache than this one-off necklace set with a 78 carat Colombian emerald and 53 carats of diamonds. Despite the value of the stones, Edmond Avakian added a very playful twist: the central flower motif spins with the ease of a rotor and keeps whirring long after it has been nudged. No proof needed that fine jewels and mechanics make for novel designs.
