Waking up early, Cassandra went to Monreale, the beautiful Norman cathedral built by William II of Sicily on the hill above Palermo. Before the doors were opened, Cassandra liked to walk up and down past the railings outside that were decorated with a series of circles and winged tips where the circles met. Cassandra half closed her eyes and imagined a flight of angels: Volo d'Angelo. From the journey to Sicily.
Volo d'Angelo bracelet in 9ct gold set with thirty diamonds.
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.
