On Cassandra's visits to Japan she is always amazed that it is an archipelago of 6,852 islands. Her Archipelago design lets beads and pearls float like islands reminding her of all those land masses that make up Japan. From the Journey to Japan.
Archipelago earrings in 9ct yellow gold set with chrysoprase beads with Astrea hoops in 18ct yellow gold and diamonds. Each earring, including hoop, measures approximately 25x14mm. These earrings are part of Cassandra's interchangeable collection.
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.
