Discover a brilliant story about a man and his legacy revealed though rich narrative and dynamically animated historical visuals. This cleverly crafted video celebrates Harry Winston’s birthday and his sensational passion (and obsession) for diamonds.

Also worthy of note: on November 18th to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Harry Winston’s donation of the Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian, the world’s most famous gemstone was mounted in a new setting titled “Embracing Hope”.  A terrific documentary titled “Mystery of the Hope Diamond” on the Smithsonian Channel reveals the history, science, secrets and curse of this legendary blue diamond.

Laziz Hamani, Harry Winston, Chanel, Cartier, Swarovski, Dior, Levine/Leavitt, llrepsUnless you’ve been under a rock (or maybe that rock sparkled so much that it left you permanently blind), you know the dazzling work of Laziz Hamani. He is trusted by the likes of Harry Winston, Chanel, Cartier, Swarovski and Dior to photograph their precious treasures with his special brand of curiosity and gift for capturing the beauty of beautiful objects. Above you see the memorable Harry Winston ad campaign followed by a delightful collage world of illustrated animals, insects and yes, more sparkling objects. His work is so worthy of exploring that I kindly suggest to begin here:
