    出處:
    一對海瑞溫斯頓祖母綠配鑽石耳環及祖母綠配鑽石別針/吊墜,曾於2017年5月31日在香港邦瀚斯珍罕珠寶及翡翠拍賣中售出,拍品號碼為600及601,曾被一併購於倫敦海瑞溫斯頓,跟此拍品屬同一珍藏。

    Harry Winston's jewellery empire began in 1926, with the acquisition of the Arabella Huntington collection of jewels. Mrs Huntington, the wife of the railroad magnate Mr Henry E. Huntington, had one of the world's most superlative jewellery collections, predominantly purchased from top Parisian jewellers, such as Cartier. Winston modified the pieces to appeal to more modern tastes thereby showcasing both his distinctive talent for business as well as design.

    He opened his first store in New York in 1932. Above all, Harry Winston understood the importance of marketing. Under his direction, the company marked the release of the 50th anniversary of the musical - The Wizard of Oz - with a replica of Dorothy's ruby slippers. Winston recreated the slippers setting them with 4,600 rubies, valued at over US$3 million. They were thought to be the most expensive pair of shoes ever made, and the news reached a world-wide audience. Some of the world's most renowned gemstones featured on and off-screen were owned by Harry Winston, hence his legendary nickname - 'Jeweller to the Stars'.

    海瑞•溫斯頓從東歐移民到美國後,在1932年於紐約設立了自己的珠寶店。他的珠寶王國始於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,收藏集成了世界上最瑰麗堂皇的珠寶珍藏之一,藏品主要來自巴黎珠寶商,比如卡地亞。海瑞•溫斯頓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。

    海瑞•溫斯頓善用充满魅力的市場推廣,能將其發揮到淋漓盡至,其中例子是在他的領導下, 公司為紀念經典音樂劇-綠野仙蹤上演50週年,他将Dorothy原本在音樂劇裏的珠片拖鞋以4,600顆紅寶石鑲嵌複製了一對,價值超過300萬美元,消息也因而傳遍世界各地。一些世界上最著名的寶石都是由海瑞•溫斯頓公司所擁有,因此他有一個的傳奇別名—"明星的珠寶商"。
