    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.

    海瑞溫斯頓被譽為「鑽石之王」及「明星的珠寶商」,所代表的不但是最稀少難求,同時是來自頂尖產地的寶石。據說溫斯頓先生擁有全球第二大的古董珠寶收藏,只僅次於英國皇室。
    溫斯頓先生相信珠寶的設計應以寶石為主導,用以展現寶石最璀璨的一面,不應受到金屬結構的限制,因此在四十年代推出Winston Cluster©(簇擁式) 鑲嵌法。此鑲嵌法利用不同形狀的鑽石拼湊成各種立體的造型,並將鉑金的部分盡量隱藏起來,營造簡約懸浮的效果,突破傳統想像,成為品牌的重要標誌。這對耳環採用了經典的Winston Cluster©鑲嵌,令每一顆白鑽都能閃耀出懾人光芒。
    令人眩目的美鑽卻無阻我們將焦點集中在兩顆來自印度喀什米爾的珍貴藍寶石上面。這個於一百多年前已經枯竭的礦源絶對是寶石界中的傳奇,所孕育出的藍寶石品質冠絶全球,無論在任何燈光下都能呈現如絲絨般的正藍色,多年來受到藏家的熱烈追捧。這亦是喀什米爾藍寶石的價值所在。
    要找到兩顆在切割、顏色和品質各方面都同樣匹配的喀什米爾藍寶石難度極高,假若進一步要求它們是全天然、沒有被加熱過的頂級寶石,難度更高,非一般人能想像。這項任務有時候需時經年,但花費十年、幾十年的時間亦不足為奇。這對耳環見證的不單是大自然界中的奇蹟,更加體現了人類的無限創意和堅毅的精神。只有上述兩者兼備,才可以成就這對獨一無二的藍寶石耳墜,綻放大都會的華麗魅力。
