Christenings and Confirmations are important milestones for godparents, grandparents and close friends to mark with a jewel.

Cassandra's collection of crosses range from the simple Kariye cross, to the intricate and colourful designs of the Madrid cross.

The Madrid Cross

Cassandra's iconic Madrid crosses are a beautiful and distinct design. Each with four iridescent pearls, they can also be set with gemstones in an array of colours from blue topaz, peridot or smoky quartz.

The Madrid Cross Design

"Walking through El Retiro park in the mornings, the sun warm on my back, the light filtering gently through my sunglasses and the sound of children's laughter everywhere. I loved to go to a small pastelerĂ­a and eat chocolate palmeras. One day there was a green and white flag hanging out over the street by the pastelerĂ­a with a cruciform pattern on it. When I came back home later that day I added it to my sketch book and then rather forgot about it. Some weeks later, with fresh eyes and clear mind, the little sketch became the pendant that has been given by godparents and grandparents, worn by girlfriends and sisters, and even by brides on their wedding day. Simply adorned with pearls or set with four birthstones in the centre it is always the most lovely of gifts - to give and to receive."

Classic Crosses

Cassandra's classic crosses are a wonderful reminder of protection and holiness.

Unusual Crosses

For something a little more unusual, Cassandra's design style takes on the traditional cross design and embues the cruciform shape with inspiration from her travels. The often subtle suggestions of a cross, like the circular St Xenia design from a Russian lantern or the Kuopio design from Finnish Karelia, make charming gifts.

Necklaces
Earrings

A simple pair of stud earrings, from the traditional diamond Finita studs, to the intricate Peking butterfly earrings, to Cassandra's iconic Astrea Hoops, which can later be adorned with pendants for a gift to be loved again and again.

Bracelets
Saints

Saints are a symbol of protection. St Christopher is the patron saint of travellers, perfect to accompany a godchild throughout his life. Or keep them safe with a guardian angel or archangel.

Gifts for Boys

From a pair of enamelled cufflinks to a box to treasure his special things, engraved with a date or some inspiring words. If you would like to discuss a bespoke engraving, please contact our showroom at [email protected]

Cufflinks

From the very first pair to be given at his Christening, or the special pair at his Confirmation, cufflinks can mark important moments in his life. Cassandra delights in adding hand engraved initials or a crest on a pair of beautifully made simple oval cufflinks or on any of her cufflinks, the date engraved discreetly on the reverse.

Bespoke Engravings

For a personal gift for a christening or confirmation, engrave a pendant with initials, a special date or some inspiring words. This pendant may be worn as a keepsake on necklace, as a charm on a bracelet or even as a keychain.
