    Harry Winston

    Harry Winston immigrated to the United States from Ukraine during the early 20th century, and grew up working in his father's jewellery shop. At the young age of twelve, his innate talents revealed his natural understanding of gemstones and the ability as a gemmologist. Consequently, it led to his success in stone-dealings, which assisted him to establish his own business at the age of only twenty-four.
    The Winston jewellery empire really began in 1926, with Harry's acquisition of a very important private jewellery estate – the Arabella Huntington collection. Mrs Huntington, the wife of the railroad magnate Mr Henry E. Huntington, assembled one of the world's most distinguished collections of jewellery, predominantly from Parisian jewellers, such as Cartier. He reconstructed those items into a more modern styled collection and showcased his distinctive skills in design and in business. In 1932, Harry founded his jewellery store in New York. Some of the world's most renowned gemstones, including the 'Jonker', 'Vargas', 'Star of the East', 'Hope', 'Taylor-Burton', 'Winston Legacy' and 'Winston Blue' diamonds were owned by Harry Winston, hence his legendary nickname - the 'King of Diamonds' and 'Jeweller to the Stars'.

    海瑞•溫斯頓

    20世紀初,海瑞•溫斯頓從烏克蘭移民到美國後,在他父親的珠寶店裡成長工作。在只有12歲的時候,他的天賦才能已經畢露,顯示出對寶石的天生理解和出色的寶石學技能。這引領著他未來走向寶石交易的成功,並幫助他在24歲時建立起自己的企業。
    溫斯頓的珠寶王國創立於1926年,當時他購下了一個非常重要的私人珠寶珍藏——Arabella Huntington藏品。鐵路巨擘Henry E. Huntington先生的妻子——Huntington太太,藏品主要來自巴黎珠寶商,比如卡地亞,收藏集成了世界上最卓著珠寶珍藏之一。Harry將這些瑰寶重新包裝,使其更具現代風格,展示出他出眾的設計技能和商業頭腦。1932年,Harry在紐約設立了自己的珠寶店。一些世界上著名的寶石,包括瓊格爾之鑽、瓦加斯之鑽、東方之星鑽石、希望之鑽、泰勒-伯頓之鑽、溫斯頓傳奇之鑽與溫斯頓藍鑽都是由海瑞溫斯頓公司所擁有,因此他有一個的傳奇綽號——"鑽石之王"與"明星的珠寶商"。
