The Mosaic Astrantia design is inspired by both Moroccan mosaics and by Astrantia flowers - the botanical name for which is believed to have originated from either the Latin word 'Aster' or Greek word 'Astra', meaning star, appropriately named to represent their flower shape. The Astrantia has delicate long stamens reaching out from the petals like compact clusters of firework-like flowers. From the Journey to Morocco.
Mosaic Astrantia bracelet in 18ct yellow gold. Set with round brilliant cut diamonds 3.9cts. along the centre and set to each side 0.6cts., in the style of the Astrantia design. This bracelet measures approximately 7.5 inches long. A signature stylistic feature of Cassandra Goad, this bracelet can be joined with another bracelet to make a spectacular necklace.
Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
