“If I could, I would attach the diamonds directly onto a woman’s skin.”
Harry Winston’s famous words continue to reverberate through the halls of the Fifth Avenue jewelry house that he founded in 1932, and they particularly informed its new collection, Ultimate Adornments. The lineup of 40 one-of-a-kind diamond and platinum necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings — the largest single collection in Winston’s history — is inspired by the idea of dressing a woman in diamonds. Instead of gowns made from glittering baubles, it takes its cues from seven different dress embellishments for the seven groupings.
