Distinctive Piece Of Jewelry Celebrates 100th Anniversary Indianapolis 500

A distinctive piece of jewelry bringing together the 100th Anniversary Indianapolis 500, the first car to win the Indianapolis 500 and the most recent car to win “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” is up for bid.

Mary Kaczor of Racer X Designs is the creator and designer of “Winning Ways,” an exclusive pendant attached to a white gold cable mesh chain.

The pendant consists of a Timken NTA-108 bearing from Dario Franchitti’s No. 10 Target Chip Ganassi Racing car that won the 2010 Indianapolis 500 and the IZOD IndyCar Series championship.

Also appearing on this amazing one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry is a frame nut from the legendary Marmon “Wasp” that was driven to victory by Ray Harroun in the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911.

A 10.05-carat round brilliant diamond appears at the heart of the composition; the 10-carat signifying the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500. The diamond setting is a convertible, designed so it can be worn separately as a solitaire outside of the statement piece. The pendant also features a collection of black and white princess-cut diamonds in a checkered flag pattern set in white gold.

To bid on this amazing piece of historic jewelry commemorating the 100th Anniversary Indianapolis 500, contact Kaczor by phone at (312) 428-4331 or via e-mail at mary@racerxdesigns.com. Bidding starts at $1 million.

A former race car driver turned jewelry designer, Kaczor years ago showed prototypes of her jewelry to the Renault Formula One Team, and a partnership was struck for her to design jewelry using Formula One car parts in a collection entitled Bijoux Racing.

Her Racer X Designs jewelry appears in some of fashion’s cutting-edge stores such as Henri Bendels on Fifth Avenue in New York and Eleven Monte Carlo Haute Couture in Monaco.

“Winning Ways” launches Kaczor’s Racer X Designs “American Racing Collection” and the concept of “Racing for Recycling,” which encompasses a custom line of jewelry utilizing used racing car parts.
