Located on the first floor of the Hangzhou Tower, in the heart of the Wulin commercial district, the new 140-square-metre store will house Harry Winston’s complete range of jewellery and timepiece collections, including diamonds and rare gemstones.

Outside, the store’s travertine stone façade is accented with four light boxes on the street level, while the entrance inside of the tower features the house’s gated entry way embellished with signature gold rosette motifs.

Inside, the interior offers a soft taupe and grey color palette, punctuated with custom designed lacquer and antique furniture, silks and bespoke chandeliers reflect a variation on traditional Winston style.

The store layout features dedicated areas for the house’s fine jewelry and timepieces, bridal collections and high jewelry, in addition to a private selling room offering a discreet and highly personalised shopping experience.

“Revered for its rich cultural and historic heritage, Hangzhou, now the capital city of Zhejiang Province, is one of the vital cultural and economic centers of China, with an incredibly vibrant spirit,” said Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston, Inc.

“The opening of Harry Winston’s new salon, marks its eighth location in mainland China, and brings the House’s timeless legacy to a city with over two thousand years of history.”

The New York jeweller now boasts eight stores in mainland China. Last year, Harry Winston opened its first retail location in China’s Nanjing, in addition to two salons in Beijing and Shanghai, respectively, and one in Shenzhen, and Chengdu, respectively.
