Harry Winston Debuts The New 45.52-Carat Hope Necklace

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Harry Winston’s historic donation of the Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian Institution in 1958, the company has now crafted a new 45.52-carat “Embracing Hope” setting. Consisting of 340 baguette diamonds set into platinum, the necklace, modeled by Estée Lauder spokesperson Hilary Rhoda, took eight master jewelers more than 1,000 hours to create! To see more of the fabled deep blue gem, catch the behind-the-scenes footage in the Mystery of the Hope Diamond documentary on the Smithsonian Channel Nov. 21, visit harrywinston.com, or catch a real life glimpse of the precious stone at The Smithsonian museum!
