Best of the Best 2011: Jewelry Collections: Harry Winston

    When Harry Winston (800.988.4110, www.harrywinston.com) unveiled its Court of Jewels exhibit last November in New York, it was reminiscent of the jeweler’s original display bearing the same name that traveled to major American cities from 1949 to 1953. The new collection is equally impressive, with a rare selection of jewels including a brilliant blue 66-carat Par­aíba tourmaline necklace; an 84-carat blue spinel necklace set on a diamond chain; and an extraordinary spectrum of gems, including orange, purple, and red diamonds. With this line, Harry Winston proves it is still a leader in capturing great stones.
