Iguminov double ended cufflinks in silver and dark blue enamel. The Iguminov house in Moscow - exquisitely decorated with polychromatic tiles by a merchant called Iguminov - was covered in snow (when Cassandra went to visit and collect a friend's child from the lycee that was housed in the back of the French Embassy). While waiting, Cassandra dusted some snow off a window frame and uncovered a bosse that was carved with this pattern. She sketched it quickly with frozen fingers and once back in the workshop reworked the pattern into a necklace and bracelet link, and later into cufflinks. The design allows the crossed hatch pattern to be highly polished leaving the recesses matt so giving the design depth and sparkle. It has become one of Cassandra's classic signature designs. From the Journey to Russia.

The top of each cufflink measures approximately 14x9mm.

Iguminov

Inspired by the window frame of the Iguminov House in Moscow, from the journey to Russia.

Silver

Silver is the most malleable of metals and when freshly polished takes a mirror like shine. All of the sterling silver used in Cassandra Goad jewellery is of the highest quality and crafted in one of our workshops in London. Cassandra always finds her silver from sustainable sources and where possible recycles the metal; never compromising on quality

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.

Russia

Count Orlov gave his lover the Empress Catherine jewels beyond compare. Locked up in the dimly lit corridors of the Kremlin, they inspired Cassandra to create new jewels sparkling with gemstones. The St Basil's bracelet mixes enamels and cabochon gems. The pushkin cufflinks are timelessly elegant.
