A man who owned a third of the world’s greatest diamonds over the course of his fascinating and storied career is certainly worth celebrating. Tomorrow, March 1, would have been Mr. Harry Winston’s 118th birthday and to celebrate the occasion the house of Harry Winston has unveiled a new film, appropriately titled Harry Winston’s Legacy, that takes viewers through the great American jeweler’s life, beginning with the purchase of a gem for 25 cents at just 12 years old, through his career creating some of the most famous and coveted diamonds and his lasting legacy.

Click here to watch! And Happy Birthday Mr. Harry Winston!
