New York Jewelers

May 16, 2014

photoNew York City, one of the biggest hubs for design, has produced some of the worlds greatest jewelry designers. Some are names that most of us are familiar with today, and some others are names that sadly, over time, have almost been forgotten. Harry Winston. A name we all know and revere. Mr. Winston began his career when bought the enormous jewelry of Arabella Huntington, wife of railroad magnate Henry Huntington. He redesigned her old fashioned collection into newer, more contemporary, pieces, displaying his natural gift for jewelry design, and from there, his fame grew. Shortly thereafter his creations could be found adorning royalty and Hollywood’s most famous stars. Harry Winston was, in fact, the first jeweler to lend his pieces to actresses for the Academy Awards to be worn on the red carpet. To this day, the Harry Winston company still makes some the finest jewelry creations one can find. Paul Flato, however, is a name much more obscure now, but once was at the very top of the ultra high jewelry scene in New York City. IMG_4615 Paul Flato was one of the very first celebrity jewelers. He became most famous for making stunning pieces for Hollywood actresses like Mae West, Rita Hayworth, Joan Crawford and Katharine Hepburn. Some say that before Harry Winston opened up his doors as a retailer, Mr. Flato was his biggest wholesale client. Flato creations are unique, intricate, beautiful and even highly sought after by those who still know of his talents. Not easy to come by, but when you do, you know you are holding a gem in your hand.
