Hardly any substantial information about Harry Winston. Far too many pages devoted to watches, which are NOT what Winston should be remembered for. This is not a book by Andre Leon Talley, only the foreword is by Talley.

Great work on Harry Winston jewellery. Magnificent imagery, and very informative text. Great just to flicker through or for an in-depth study of Harry Winston.

Too Few Examples of the Masterpieces 6 Dec 2012
By scott gropp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First off, let me say that I have a large collection of books on jewelry, as well as auction catalogs, so I'm quite familiar with the work of Harry Winston, and have seen many of the truly astounding pieces that have come out of that revered house.

Where are they in this book?!

The book itself is what you would expect from a high quality jewelry publication; large format, high-quality paper, crisp photos. There's also a good amount of information about Harry Winston.

What's lacking, however, are the examples of the work that has set Winston apart and made his name synonymous with the most magnificent examples of jewelry in the world.

I was very excited to receive this book, having pre-ordered it as soon as it was available, only to be disappointed to see that I already have many better examples of Winston's work in other publications.

An advertisement for Harry Winston 16 Nov 2012
By Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An advertising campaign for Harry Winston. Very little information is given about the gems or their history and in one case the Lesotho III is mentioned but there is no photo. The book is quite large and glossy but not worth the price.

Disappointing..... 11 Nov 2012
By Alex Mogilevski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Unfortunatley, this is the mostly disappointing book! It contains all the photos and pictures that we have seen before on multiple occasions! There is nothing new and interesting, the most fascinating masterpieces by Harry Winston were omittied, but all unnecessary stuff was included. I find no pleasure in wathching innumerable black and white photos of some people I have no interest in.

I consider this book totally worthless for its money...

Harry Winston 19 Nov 2012
By Gliglu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought it would have more historical jewels. I was disapointed. However if one is looking for a book simply on jewelry it is a good book with great pictures.
