Harry Winston started his career working at his father’s jewelry business in New York City. In his early years, Winston developed a keen interest in jewelry: “Ever since I was quite young, jewels have fascinated me. I think I must have been born with some knowledge of them,” he once said. He made a breakthrough at the age of 12 when he bought a two-carat emerald stone for 25 cents and sold it for $800. Winston’s works have been worn by the likes of Claudette Colbert, Shirley Temple, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and Jennifer Jones. Harry Winston’s Kashmir ring, accented with sapphires and diamonds, will be available in Bonhams’ New York Jewels auction this December.
A diamond necklace and bracelet set from Hammerman Brothers is also on offer. Accompanied by a detachable segment, the piece features five rows of round brilliant-cut diamonds. To view the complete auction catalog and register to bid online, visit Bonhams.
