WITH LOVE AND LONGING: FORGET-ME-NOT BY HARRY WINSTON
Imagine for a minute the most exquisite proposal a girl could wish for – an invitation from your boyfriend to go look for engagement rings! You’re overflowing with excitement and your special man is eager to see what you choose. So you agree to meet up on Old Bond Street before dinner at the glamorous Isabel. But to your surprise, he guides you to the newly renovated Harry Winston boutique instead.
Like a true gentleman, he holds open the door for you and your heart starts to beat faster and faster, as you step inside the world of Harry Winston diamonds and exquisite jewellery. Puzzled, you take his hand as he leads you to a private room upstairs. Opening the door, you are met with the fragrance and beauty floor-to-ceiling flowers. Then he gets down on one knee and utters the words you’ve been longing to hear, “Will you marry me, my love?”
What a romantic proposal that would be! Followed by, of course, the words – “Choose whatever you like my love.” Are you still with me? If so, check out my favourite Harry Winston engagement rings from my previous visit.
Let’s return to reality and talk about the secret garden on Bond Street at Harry Winston. It’s the perfect setting to unveil their latest floral-inspired collection called, Forget-Me-Not by Harry Winston.
Nature has given us so many beautiful things like white diamonds and colourful gemstones, but flowers have to be one of the most fascinating, especially to me. Floral motifs in jewellery are so feminine and precious that artists, designers and great minds like Mr. Winston have spent their lifetime paying tribute to their splendid beauty. An enchanting and enduring muse, flowers will always capture the imagination of the Harry Winston designers and inspire beautiful, timeless, feminine jewellery collections.
The Forget-Me-Not is a symbol of true love. It’s delicate blue colour signifies true love and loyalty, making it the perfect gift for someone you love. With a famed tradition of bringing the beauty of nature and the magnificence of gemstones together in exquisite jewellery, Winston designers, under the creative direction of the late and legendary Maurice Galli, have immortalized the forget-me-not in this new collection.
With the Forget-Me-Not Collection, the graceful silhouette of the flower is brought to life through an enchanting medley of round brilliant, pear-shaped and marquise-cut diamonds. You have your choice of delicate daytime jewels – necklace, pendant, earrings, bracelet, ring, and a complementing charm. The collection is one of the legendary Galli’s last creations and a beautiful reminder of everything he inspired for the House of Harry Winston.
Forget-Me-Not by Harry Winston will be available at Harry Winston salons worldwide beginning in May 2017.
