Legendary Collection.. Tiffany and Co. in Melbourne…

It’s not everyday that one of the biggest names in jewellery comes to your doorstep with a ridiculously expensive collection for you to salivate over, so take advantage of this opportunity while you can Melbourne.

Jewellery heavyweight Tiffany and Co. has brought to Melbourne its Legendary Diamonds collection. As the title suggests the pieces in this collection revolve around some of the most stunning diamonds that Tiffany’s have seen in all of its 160 years in the Jewellery industry.

While its believed that everything has its price, the price tags that will be on display in the Collins St store until August 11 this year will certainly be on the higher side. The Diamond Fringe necklace (above) is on sale for approximately $3 million dollars, and other items from the collection, including the Heart Shaped 10-carat earrings, retail for more than $2.4 Million.

While none of us may have $3 million dollars sitting around, heading into the Melbourne CBD for some window-shopping and a chance to have your own time with these jewels is an opportunity you should pursue. There is only a couple days left until these items are placed back into their turquoise boxes ready to continue their journey around the world, so get in while you still have the chance.

Here is Vogue’s gallery of some of the pieces on display in Melbourne:

The Jewellery Edit: Harry Winston.. The Father of Modern Jewellery…

Harry Winston Emerald & Diamond Ring

New Design… Classic Harry Winston…

If there is any Jewellery label that truly understands what jewellery is all about, it’s Harry Winston. The legacy of the jeweller is drowned in acts of goodwill, flawless design and of a career that highlights the aspects of the jewellery world that are the most important.

Just an example of why we love the current crop of Harry Winston jewellery is the ring titled, ‘Emerald and Diamond.’ Spawning from ‘The Incredibles’ collection, the Emerald and Diamond is similar to the jewellery being designed and produced by The Bling Society. Much like The Bling Society, Harry Winston produces bold and statement-making pieces designed to ‘wow’ all of your friends.

The life of Harry Winston is full of interesting stories. The first is of how a young Harry, after growing up in his fathers jewellery shop, spotted a diamond in a thrift shop that he purchased for $0.25, and later sold for $800. As Harry moved into his later life, he donated the Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian in Washington DC. This Diamond is believed to have a value between $200-250 million.

Interesting fact about the father of modern jewellery, the famous song, “Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friend” pays homage to Harry Winston, as one of the interjections in the song goes “Talk to me, Harry Winston, tell me all about it!”

Harry Winston’s Jewellery is all about making an impression, something he himself certainly made on the world of jewellery.
