King of Diamonds Harry Winston (March 1, 1896 – December 28, 1978)
To determine exactly when the history of the Harry Winston brand began is difficult to determine, although the official date of foundation of Harry H. Winston Jewels, Inc. is 1932.
Harry’s father Jacob, Jewish immigrant from Russian Empire, opened his jewelry store in Manhattan in 1890. Noteworthy, Harry has shown an interest in jewelry and gemstones since childhood. Incredibly, at the age of 13 he became a millionaire, and opened his own company Premier Diamond when he was 14 years old!
Five years later, the 19-year-old millionaire began to buy the most expensive collections of jewelry and stones for millions of dollars, receiving the well-deserved title “King of Diamonds”.
Upon his death, Winston bequeathed the company to his two sons, Ronald and Bruce. In 2000, Ronald, along with his partner Fenway Partners, bought out Bruce’s stake for $54.1 million.
Currently, Harry Winston, Inc. operates tens of showrooms and numerous branches in New York, Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, Dallas, Chicago, and all over the world.
Winston owned a unique collection of sixty notable diamonds, which are practically unparalleled in the whole world.
The contribution of Harry Winston to the jewelry business is enormous. He developed new types of cutting, applied new methods of fastening and created unusual frames. His idea of a multi-level arrangement of stones showed precious stones in all their glory.
