    Revered as the 'King of Diamonds' and the 'Jeweller to the Stars', Harry Winston is synonymous to the rarest and the most remarkable gemstones of the highest quality. From diamonds to coloured gemstones of prestigious pedigree, Harry Winston is reported to own the world’s second largest collection of historic jewels, second only to the one of the British royal family.
    Mr. Winston believes that gemstones should dictate designs, which means the metal settings should be reduced to bare minimum for a gem to show its full potential. This belief gave birth to the Winston Cluster ©, a unique way of setting diamonds of various shapes at different angles within an almost invisible amount of platinum. This magnificent pair of earrings is a perfect example of the signature Winston Cluster ©. All diamonds are perfectly-angled to allow maximum light return and utmost brilliance.
    However, the true hero on this pair of earrings is without doubt the pair of superb sapphires. Hailing from the legendary mine of Kashmir which was long depleted over a hundred years ago, the two specimens of matching size and cutting display the iconic blue hue that stay constant regardless of the light source – a distinctive attribute of Kashmir sapphire that makes them highly covetable.
    Only connoisseurs can imagine the difficulty of assembling two Kashmir sapphires of matching quality in this size, for them to be at the same time completely free of heat treatment, it is a quest that required years, if not decades to complete. This pair of earrings attests the true wonders of nature, as well as human’s creative power and perseverance, a poetic expression of cosmopolitan glamour.
