06 May Harry Winston suite in Alexa/The NY Post
For most of us, a “cluster” is a situation to be avoided at all costs. But in the land of legendary jeweler Harry Winston, the cluster is an iconic design element, where different cuts of diamonds (pear, marquise and round brilliant) are grouped together to create maximum brilliance and sparkle. The latest is a dazzling suite — necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring — of three-dimensional sculptures featuring yellow and white diamonds, accented by pink sapphires, and set in yellow gold and platinum. Don’t be fooled by the delicate look of the necklace (above); it boasts a weighty 32 carats of diamonds. Ditto the bracelet at 14.5 carats, the earrings at about 4.5 carats and the absolutely mesmerizing ring, with a radiant 3-carat cushion cut yellow diamond. How’s that for suite dreams?
