Great Wall of China

"I drove out of Beijing early one morning with my wonderful driver, Jaws. When we arrived some hours later at Mutianyu, I wandered along the meandering, snake-like pathway, up and down along it's cobbled road, in and out of the sentry post gates. I stopped here and there to gaze at the view or to sit on a step, letting my eyes reach far into the distance. It was here that I started to sketch out the 'Great Wall of China' cufflinks.

The oval outlines of the cufflinks tell the story of the wall with it's brick highway, interspersed, with its gate houses, which I deeply engraved in the surfaces.

My favourite version of the cufflinks are in 18ct gold, where the deep golden yellow contrasts with the darkness of the engraved lines, or with a vivid blue, green or red enamel."

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she regularly encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - silver, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you.

Craftsmanship and Sourcing

All Cassandra Goad jewellery is designed and made in the workshops in London.
As a gemmologist, the chemical composition and properties of gemstones have always fascinated Cassandra. Ever in search of the unusual and rare, she 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, his interpretation is vital to the overall feel of the jewel. The jewel is then mounted, assayed , polished and set. Many of Cassandra's jewels can be hand engraved with a personal message to make a unique bespoke gift.


In China, Cassandra designed her Qin and Han collection, interpreting the warring factions in opposing colours of gemstones. Butterflies of diamonds, sapphires and emeralds inspired on the 18th century Chinese wallpaper became necklaces and tiaras. Cassandra was overwhelmed by the Temple of Heaven- its geometric roof shapes becoming a pair of earrings.
