In celebration of 50 years at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, we reported back in August about the Hope Diamond being famed with a new setting designed by Harry Winston that would be chosen by the people.
Well, America has spoken and the new setting for the HOPE diamond has just been announced! As you can see from the picture above, this elegant and new, yet modern design truly captures the purity of color and dimension. Quite different from the more traditional setting of before, though just as magnificent!
As if unlocking a secret or unwrapping a precious gift, three-dimensional ribbons of diamonds delicately unfold to reveal HOPE. Suspended with an exquisite embrace of diamonds, the purity of the setting provides a captivating glimpse of HOPE in its truest form. –Harrywinston.com
As the new setting is being crafted, the HOPE diamond will continue to be displayed without a setting. To learn more, please visit the Smithsonian Channel.
