Jewellery For The Races

What should I wear to the races?

Horse racing has a long and distinguished history, having been practised in civilisations across the world. Historical chariot racing paved the way for Thoroughbred racing to catch the attention of British royalty and aristocrats, earning it the title of “Sport of Kings”.

Historically jewellery worn at the races has been inspired by the equestrian sport and the themes involved. The most popular motifs and designs in jewellery were based on horse riding throughout the Victorian times and continue today.

Cassandra's equine obsession

Cassandra’s equestrian designs are inspired by her own love of horses having ridden since she was a child. An early memory of Cassandra’s involving horses was when she went hunting with her grandfather on the weekends and enjoyed the ability to be outside and surrounded by nature. From the journey to France, it was clear that horses were a focus of her designs, with the distinct iron motif on the stables of the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte and its exceptionally elegant swirling symmetry, creating the Ecurie design.
