Time has many different facets. Mysterious, picturesque, mischievous, surprising… Like women themselves, it can be read on many different levels, constantly changing and forever showing up where it is least expected. The new creations from the High Jewelry collection by Harry Winston explore this precious time in order to reveal its most extraordinary hours. Sparkling confidantes of enchanted evenings, these exquisite creations that light up a dazzling smile choose to reveal themselves in countless romantic and subtle ways – while never forgetting to maintain a hint of mystery concealed beneath their cloak of diamonds.
HARRY WINSTON RENDEZ-VOUS
Once upon a time there were two passionate individuals who met up for a secret tryst, with time as the invisible and sole witness. This “mysterious” watch pays vibrant tribute to the unique jewelry-making expertise of the House. On the one hand a graceful “creeper vine”, on the other a precious and luminous river of gems. The first is a contemporary interpretation of the iconic Harry Winston clusters, based on a setting technique creating a three-dimensional stage for the gemstones. Composed of a central ridge sparkling with pear-cut diamonds, framed on either side by two rows of pear- and brilliant-cut diamonds, it springs to life with sensual, undulating, almost serpentine grace. Facing it is a glowing cloak of light composed of variously sized brilliants creating a shimmering river with a smooth flow matched by the harmony of the design. Each line is delicately juxtaposed against the others to form a perfect curve that owes nothing to chance. These two personalities were undoubtedly destined to meet. Once initiated, this subtle game of seduction ends in a passionate embrace. Their close encounter is watched over by time, preciously hidden beneath a pivoting cover crowned with pear-cut diamonds. The full-pavé dial illuminates the intimacy of a rendez-vous thus sealed for all eternity.
