Zara Phillips releases horse-inspired jewellery collection

Zara Tindall has released the ‘Zara Phillips Collection’ of jewellery in collaboration with Australian designer John Calleija.

Sponsorship has allowed the 34-year-old equestrienne to continue her professional eventing career, which has seen Zara be able to compete at the Olympics, as well as other international events.

Mrs Tindall, who uses her maiden name Phillips for her professional work, has two lines within the collection, based on her love of horses connections. The ‘Saddle Suite’ features saddle-shaped rings, earrings and pendants, and represent Zara’s love of horses and competing, which she does professionally. The ‘Coronet Suite’ gives a nod to her Royal lineage, given the traditional definition of a coronet, but this name is said to represent the band on top of a horse’s hoof – though to an untrained eye, does bear resemblance to the basic frame of a crown or coronet.

The collection will be hand-finished in platinum, or white, yellow or rose gold, and set with diamonds, making it a luxury range. Prices start from

On 18th June, Zara attended a launch event at the Royal Arcade, promoting her new range. She said the inspiration came from a ring she saw John Calleija’s wife wearing.

Mrs Tindall already endorses Land Rover and Rolex, having done an ad campaign for the former in a mud-splattered evening gown.

They are not the only ways Zara has made money, since she is not supported by The Queen: after her daughter, Mia, was born in January 2014, Zara and husband Mike allowed Hello! Magazine to come to their house on Princess Anne’s Gatcombe estate and photograph their newborn.

Her brother, Peter, who also happens to be her agent, also does this, and allowed Hello! exclusive access to his wedding in 2008.

Since neither of The Princess Royal’s children hold Royal titles, they are allowed to earn money in this way, which others like Princess Eugenie, for example, would not be able to.
