It was Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot on Thursday, and we were treated to interesting royal jewels from four different ladies from the royal family!
The Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence led the royal party at the races on Thursday. She wore an orange dress with neutral accessories.
The jewels she wore reflected the warm tone of her dress. She chose the stud portion of her Grima pearl, gold, and diamond earrings, plus a choker necklace with a gorgeous gem-set clasp. I’ve not been able to decide whether the golden portion of the cluster features white stones in a yellow gold setting or something like topazes. I’m leaning toward the latter, but honestly, I like the effect either way.
Mike and Zara Tindall accompanied Princess Anne and Sir Tim in the lead carriage of Wednesday’s procession, and then they joined them in the parade ring afterward. Zara’s ensemble for the day featured vibrant shades of white, pink, and green.
She accessorized with an interesting pair of pearl earrings with a floral/sunburst design.
The Countess of Wessex went for a bold ensemble for Ladies’ Day, wearing a bright floral dress with a blue and pink hat.
She wore her pavé-set diamond drop earrings, plus her aquamarine pendant necklace. I like this view of the necklace, which shows the piece’s interesting scroll setting in clear detail.
She also added an aquamarine ring from her collection to the look.
For the second day running, the always-elegant Lady Sarah Chatto was on hand as well. She rode in the carriage procession today, wearing her signature look: pleated skirt, cardigan sweater, picture hat.
She added some lovely jewels to the look, including her diamond sunburst earrings and a pearl choker necklace with a diamond clasp. (The clasp is hidden under her neckline.) And just like yesterday, she stacked some intriguing bracelets on both wrists. These look like lovely antique pieces to me.
