A silver, diamond, ruby and enamel horse and jockey brooch from the Edwardian period. Portrayed in full gallop, the intricately millegrain edged figure of the racehorse has been highlighted by rose cut diamonds and a determined red ruby eye. The animated figure of the jockey sits astride a ruby studded saddle, whilst yielding a crop to ensure maximum speed. Horse racing was an incredibly popular sport during the Edwardian era. Although the Edwardian period only lasted for nine years (1901-1910), it was an incredibly important era for jewellery design. Hugely intricate pieces, showcasing the very best diamonds and gemstones, were worn with elaborate fashions from the most famous French couture houses. Driven by the explosion of court life, steered by the fashion conscious King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, this was a truly special time. Headed by the King himself, who was a passionate racehorse breeder, the spectacle was enjoyed by many levels of society. Portrayed in distinct blue and yellow racing ‘silks’, these colours could well have related to a specific racehorse, with this brooch being worn by a female member of the owner's family.
Perfect for a day at the races, this brooch can be worn and enjoyed on an elegant silk jacket, or clipped on to a statement hat to form an elegant centrepiece.
