Jewelry and candy have enjoyed a happy exchange in American culture for decades. Children have played with—and snacked on—necklaces of pastel, sugary beads since 1958, and in the late 1970s, Frank Richards dreamed up the highly wearable and consumable Ring Pop (it has a fan in Mariah Carey, whom Nick Cannon proposed to in 2008 with a diamond ring hidden in a Ring Pop wrapper). Harry Winston, the gemologist who founded his eponymous jewelry house in 1932, often selected saturated stones reminiscent of sweets for his designs.
Now the brand has debuted a new collection, Winston Candy, inspired by his approach and based on archival sketches from the 1950s and 1960s. Comprising one-of-a-kind cocktail rings that focus on brilliant color juxtapositions, the grouping includes combinations like an emerald-cut pink spinel center stone from Tajikistan paired with diamonds, tsavorite garnets, and blue and pink sapphires, and a cushion-cut spessartite garnet offset by pink sapphires, diamonds, and peridots. The results look good enough to eat, but we’d recommend you stick to donning them as adornment.
