The Horsebit, an emblem synonymous with Gucci, boasts a rich history dating back to the 1950s. Conceived by Aldo Gucci in 1953 as an adornment for loafers, the Horsebit serves as a tribute to the brand's long-standing association with the equestrian realm. Depicting a stylised rendition of a horse's bridle, featuring a double ring and a bar metal clamp, the Horsebit captures the true essence of the Gucci community. Over the years, it has remained a hallmark insignia for the brand, undergoing creative reinterpretations in hardware and motifs across a wide array of accessories, jewellery pieces, and ready-to-wear collections.
Celebrating the Horsebit’s 70th anniversary, Gucci has unveiled a captivating collection of new jewellery pieces fashioned from yellow gold. Blending timelessness with contemporary structure, these bold designs feature the iconic Horsebit pattern, intricately woven into sleek, minimalist links, resulting in geometric chains integrated with their closures.
Incorporating the iconic Horsebit into the realm of timepieces, Gucci has also introduced two new watches. The first timepiece showcases a delicate double-row chain, paired with a multifaceted lozenge case, while the second sports a bolder three-row chain design. Both watches boast yellow gold cases, bracelets, and brushed dials.
The new jewellery pieces include a ring, a necklace and two bracelets – one single-row and the other featuring a double one. The contemporary chain design spells minimalism, ensuring an alluring contrast with the classic Horsebit emblem. The collection also features a necklace and two bracelets with single and three-row designs, decked with diamond baguettes and vibrant green enamel.
