Iguminov double ended cufflinks in 9ct yellow gold set with ruby cabochon ends. I was waiting at the French Lycee school one afternoon in Moscow with the snow falling heavily around me. As I leaned back against the Iguminov house that had been built by a merchant who had covered the house in polychromatic tiles, I dusted the snow off a window sill. There beneath the snow I saw a wonderful 'bosse', I 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 allow the cross hatch pattern to be highly polished leaving the recesses matt so giving the design depth and sparkle. It has become one of my classic signature designs. From the Journey to Russia.

Each cufflink barrel measures approximately 14x9mm.

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.

Sapphire

Sapphire occurs in Sri Lanka, Australia and Myanmar and varies in its often velvet like colour from colourless to blue, pink, yellow, green and purple hues. Cassandra often finds unusual colours and cuts on her travels and she particularly loves the rarer green sapphires. Sapphire, the stone is associated with wisdom and is the birthstone for September.

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.
