Harry Winston has opened a new retail outlet in Geneva, Switzerland, at 42 Rue du Rhone. The new 4,768 square-foot “salon” will showcase the breadth of Harry Winston’s jewellery and timepiece collections, including the finest diamonds and rarest gemstones available today.

“Geneva has long played an important role in the history of Harry Winston.”, said Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston, Inc. “It was one of the first international cities where Mr. Winston opened a salon, and more recently has served as the home to our timepiece manufacture. With the opening of our beautiful new salon, we are proud to deepen our roots in Geneva, by bringing back the complete Harry Winston experience for our clients.”

The interior of the new salon reflects a contemporary variation on the traditional Winston style, drawing references from the architecture and design of the brand’s iconic Fifth Avenue Flagship. A soft taupe and grey color palette complements the custom designed black lacquer and antique bronze furniture, with bespoke chandeliers, hand-beaded silk walls and antique accents.

The two-story layout features dedicated areas for high jewelry, bridal and timepieces, created to highlight the breadth of Harry Winston’s exceptional collections, while ensuring clients the highly personalized shopping experience that the House is known for. Private selling rooms provide the ideal environment for a discreet and truly luxurious shopping experience.
