Harry Winston Facts – History of Harry Winston Jewelers

That tradition continues today under the house’s owner Nayla Hayek, who has proven she has that same passion—and buying power—for the world’s rarest jewels. Today, she unveiled the Winston Pink Legacy, an 18.96 fancy vivid pink diamond ring, on what would have been Mr. Winston’s 125th birthday.

Hayek purchased the stone at a Christie’s auction in November 2018
