Inspired by the hazelnut or noisette in French, with its heart shaped nut case with a flat and textured base. The noisette swings open to reveal the inside of the nut. Hazelnuts are the key ingredients of Nutella much loved by French children for breakfast. From the journey to France.
Noisette earring drops in 9ct yellow gold with satin base to the nut paired with Astrea 9ct yellow gold hoops. 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.
