March 19, 2021—I’ve said it before and it bears repeating, we are in the midst of an engagement ring renaissance. Brides are not only daring to wear more creative jewels, they are demanding them. Designers are rising to the occasion with all kinds of wonderful creations pushing at the edges of the traditional design parameters of engagement rings.
Now Harry Winston, home of the magnificent diamond engagement ring, has jumped into the creative fray. The dazzling new Bridal Couture capsule collection features eight rings.
The “Couture” in the title is a reference to wedding gowns, the source of inspiration for the designs. Each ring highlights various elements of a gown and those details are matched with various fancy diamond solitaires.
See a selection of the collection below.
The pear and marquise shape diamonds surrounding the upper right corner of the emerald-cut center stone in this engagement ring are inspired by the open-weave pattern of Chantilly lace.
Romantic bows with little pear-shape diamond centers, tie up the sides of this oval-shaped diamond engagement ring.
In the vocabulary of the Bridal Couture collection, Winston’s lavish marquise shape diamond bypass ring is a nod to wedding gowns with asymmetrical hemlines.
The interlacing ribbons found in wedding gown corsetry inspired the lyrical setting for this pear-shape diamond engagement ring.
A bride’s veil that is lifted during the ceremony to frame her face was the design cue for this grand emerald-cut diamond in a halo setting of gems.
