New designs for Ascot X Links of London’s 2019 capsule collaboration refer to the heritage of Royal Ascot and interpret it for a new generation that embraces the formal dress code as a creative opportunity. The defining motif is the horseshoe – a graphic symbol of good luck and also the shape of the Winners’ Enclosure where owners are reunited with their triumphant jockeys and horses. Engraved patterns on the edges of each horseshoe are inspired by the geometric colour blocks on the silks worn by jockeys and the connecting pieces resemble the knots on a horse’s bridle. Mark the summer of 2019 by adding this 18kt rose gold vermeil and white sapphire horseshoe charm to your collection. It’s one of the new results of an ongoing collaboration between Royal Ascot – first held in 1711 – and British jeweller Links of London. Style it as part of a personal selection of adornments on a chain necklace, charm bracelet or simply dangling from a sleek safety pin for a DIY approach to the season’s brooch trend. Look closely to see that bracelet and necklace ends are each shaped to resemble a square farrier’s nail and set with a small white sapphire – a tangible expression of the excitement of a day at the races with friends.
