Pushkin double ended cufflinks in 18ct yellow gold with one end set with pave set sapphires and sapphire cabochon linked to a plain end. Inspired by the story of Aleksander Pushkin. From the Journey to Russia.
Each cufflink measures approximately 14mm in diameter.
Aleksander Pushkin evokes thoughts of the Russian dandy. Impeccably dressed in long dark navy velvet jackets with cream silk shirts, I imagined him wearing gold cufflinks set with exquisite blue sapphires threaded through his cuffs - the blue twinkle just showing as he bent his arm on bowing before a beautiful woman at an evening soirée.
Sapphire's dazzling lustre ranges from deep velvet translucent depths to colourless transparency, in blue, pink, yellow, green, purple and colourless hues.
Originating in Sri Lanka, Australia and Myanmar, Cassandra often finds unusual colours and cuts on her travels, enraptured by rarer green sapphires in particular. Regarded as a healing corundum gemstone, with calming properties, it's no wonder sapphires appear in such captivating and mystical hues.
The birthstone for September; this protective gemstone is known to have create powers of serenity and purity, with each colour embodying its own unique sense of wisdom.
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.
