Iguminov double ended cufflinks in 9ct yellow gold. 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.

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.

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.
