The Parquet design honours the incredible patterns of parquet flooring found at Le Château de Villandry. Inside you will find a series of rooms facing onto the gardens with the equally brilliant geometric patterns of the polished parquet wooden floors. Stunning diamonds and gemstones are set within the striking octagonal shape echoing closely the unique outline of the Villandry parquet floor designs as a pendant, earrings and bracelet chain.
Parquet small earring drops in 9ct yellow gold with facetted red garnets paired with Astrea hoops in 9ct yellow gold. These earrings, including drops measure approximately 11x25mm. 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.
