    Harry Winston: An ambitious man, Harry Winston parlayed a $2,000 investment into what is arguably regarded as the best diamond jewelry business of the 20th century. His shop opened on New York City's 5th Avenue in 1932. Harry Winston was renown for his ability to see the potential locked within a diamond. He often purchased jewelry solely for the purpose re-cutting major diamonds. He is famous for cutting many of the world’s most spectacular diamonds, such as the Jonker and the Taylor-Burton. Winston donated three very famous diamonds to the Smithsonian museum: the Oppenheimer, the Hope, and the Portuguese. Often referred to as the "King of the Diamonds", he owned one-third of the world's most famous diamonds at one time. Harry Winston died in 1978. The business continues to operate select cities across the U.S. and abroad.
