The roof top finials on Villa Tasca in Palermo are swathed in garlands of vines and grapes telling of the wines of the Tasca family. With links to the Lampedusas - Tomasi de Lampdusa wrote the greatest Sicilian novel: The Leopard in 1958 - the Tascas are one of the great Sicilian families. Cassandra spent afternoons in their gardens on the edge of Palermo reading about Sicily and gathering ideas and stories for this collection. And so it was that one afternoon, Cassandra sketched the urns and made them golden... From the journey to Sicily.
Villa Tasca double ended cufflinks in 9ct yellow gold. Cufflinks measures approximately 10x20mm. Personalisation available.
Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
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.
