Having launched her official Santa Barbara Polo Club ring to reflect the long history of the Pacific Coast Open last year, the Carpinteria organization’s official jeweler Tara Gray, a former Miss Alabama, has designed a completely new ring for the 2019 season.

The latest bling has a new round face featuring 110 natural fancy black and white VS diamonds celebrating this year’s 110th Silver Air-sponsored tournament.

In the center, a hand-carved polo pony appears wearing an Argentine bridle halter, an element synonymous with polo. The ring’s under gallery features a horseshoe,

“The tournament’s five-foot-high gold and silver trophy is rich in history and tradition, so we kept the hand-carved eagle and leaf details from the trophy the same, as well as the hand carved club logo, in an effort to preserve the identity of the PCO championship and the club in the ring year after year,” says Tara, who came up with the idea with club promoter Charles Ward and her husband Scott Campbell.

The rings will be presented to the winning team players in September.
