Harry Winston is best known for making diamond rings of immeasurable beauty. The rings are a perfect marriage between fine art and unparalleled craftsmanship to produce mesmerizing jewelry any woman will die for!
Harry Winston has collaborated with many designers over the years. This is partly due to the jeweler’s inability to draw and design sketches by himself. Rather than let this limit his vision, he partnered with others who have the right skills he needed. One of the most prominent designers he collaborated with was Ambaji Shinde, who helped Harry Winston create some of the grandest designs the world had ever seen. Shinde was adept at combining traditional and contemporary jewelry, and wristwatch designs to produce something unique and dazzling.
