The winner for new hope diamond setting
The Smithsonian Institution invited the public to make history by voting on one of three new setting designs for the legendary Hope Diamond. To mark the occasion, Harry Winston Inc., the famed jewelry company whose owner and namesake donated the diamond to the Smithsonian, has designed three contemporary settings, to look at these 3 designs, look at my previous post .
Here’s the winner! I prefer the last setting but this is great too.
The diamond will be on display for a limited time before it returns to its original setting. The Smithsonian Channel added reassuringly that “Since the Hope’s arrival at the Smithsonian, the curse appears to have gone dormant.”
