Harry Winston Diamond Corp
Aber Diamond Corp., the mining company that owns Harry Winston is officially being renamed to Harry Winston Diamond Corp, WWD reports.
The firm has a 40 percent interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine in Lac de Gras in Canada's Northwest Territories - which produces 10 percent of the world's diamonds — 9 million to 10 million carats a year — which it sells to Winston and other suppliers. With the new company name, every diamond that comes out of Diavik will be labeled a "Harry Winston" diamond.
"It was Harry Winston's dream to own a mine," said Thomas J. O'Neill, president of HWD and chief executive officer of Harry Winston Inc.
