Speaking of Harry Winston...
So, Harry Winston is synonymous with Red Carpet Bling. And according to the posting we read on LoveToKnow.com, rightfully so. Here's what it says in their Love To Know Engagement Ring section:
One of the most famous gems ever to grace the showcase of Harry Winston is also one of the most famous gems in the world: the dark blue, 45.5 carat Hope Diamond. With a lengthy history that includes Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette, and Louis XVI, Harry Winston ultimately acquired the magnificent stone and donated it to the Smithsonian in 1958. Another famous Harry Winston gem is the Taylor Burton Diamond, a nearly 70 carat pear-shaped stone Richard Burton bought for Elizabeth Taylor. With such illustrious gems as integral parts of the Harry Winston collection, it is no surprise that many brides-to-be desire a Harry Winston engagement ring as a symbol of their ultimate treasure.
