Iguminov large double ended silver cufflinks enamelled dark blue. 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.
"There was snow falling in Moscow when I visited the Iguminov House. I brushed the snow off the stone window sill with my gloves and lent against it, warming my face in the sunshine as I read Pushkin. It was when I paused for a moment that I glanced across and saw what the brushed away snow had revealed: a trellis pattern carved in the bosse with a twist of rope at the meeting point. I sketched it on the edge of a page, pondered it and once back in the workshop recreated the stone mason's idea in silver and gold."
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.
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
