American jeweler Harry Winston once said “[t]he love of showing off diamonds is human nature.” Founder of Harry Winston Inc., he was well-known in popular culture as the “King of Diamonds,” including mention in the song lyric from “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend:” ‘Talk to me, Harry Winston, tell me all about it!’ One of his pieces, a pear-shaped 7.4-carat Harry Winston diamond ring, is featured in this Important Jewelry auction from Hindman.
