Orpheus 9ct yellow gold bracelet set with 8x facetted vivid amethysts 6.15cts. Inspired by the story of Orpheus and the underworld. From Cassandra's Classic Collection.
This bracelet measures approximately 7.5 inches long.
The design for the Orpheus bracelet was inspired by the story of Orhpeus, descending into the underworld to rescue Eurydice. The eight transparent stones of the bracelet represent the water he dived into, and eight being a lucky number reminds the wearer to be patient - a quality that Orpheus needed to work on.
Taken from the Greek word "amethystos", meaning sober; amethyst quartz has illustrious calming properties, protecting wearers with a sense of tranquillity and soberness. Famed for its regal deep purple colour, February's birthstone is said to enhance your focus and open your mind to critical thinking and clarity, and to also protect from inebriation. It is often worn by bishops set in a ring. Most are sourced from alluvial deposits in Brazil, Madagascar, Zambia and Uruguay, and Cassandra likes to juxtapose their splendour with rubies and aquamarine, or even green African garnets.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.
