Hollywood, rock and royalty turned out in force to watch the Cartier Queen's Cup polo tournament on Sunday, 16 June.

Held at the Queen's Ground at Guards Polo Club, Windsor Great Park, it was the second year in row that Cartier has hosted the sporting event. The leading jewellery brand has long been associated with the highly disciplined and prestigious sport of polo, since the creation of the Cartier International Polo in 1985.

Sixteen teams entered the prestigious three-week tournament, which came to a head on Sunday in the final match between team Zacara and team El Remanso, both of which came into the final previously unbeaten. However, English financier and investor Lyndon Lea's team Zacara won, beating the opposition 15-9.

The match was watched by Her Majesty The Queen and her grandaughter Princess Beatrice, Arnaud M. Bamberger, Executive Chairman Cartier Ltd, and Laurent Feniou, Managing Director Cartier Ltd, alongside a large crowd of sporting and celebrity faces. Television presenter and retired jockey Clare Balding was spotted cheering on the teams, as well as fellow presented Ben Fogle, while starlets Thandie Newton, Sharon Stone and Katherine Jenkins brought a touch of glamour to the enclosure.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
