Embracing the Hope Diamond

The Embracing Hope Diamond necklace by Harry Winston.
Last night, Novembre 17th 2010, Harry Winston presented on their 5th Avenue flagship store the famous 45.52ct fancy blue Hope diamond in it’s new setting. Enlaced with baguette cut diamonds, it’s design poeticaly communicates a message of hope, ironic for this diamond who’s story has been embedded with curses. The legend has it that ever since it was stolen from the forehead of an idol of the Goddess Sita in the early 1600s, it was cursed; bad luck and death would befall on any of those who would touch it.

Today, Harry Winston gives this diamond a second chance, the necklace “Embracing Hope” conveyes a whisper of change for the future story of this diamond, hopefully protected from all curses.
