Cassandra's Cavolfiore design was inspired by the Sicilian markets which are full of the most beautifully ripe fruit and vegetables that overflow copiously from their baskets. Great white blossoming cauliflowers sat like brides of the garden amongst the oranges and lemons. As Cassandra sketched later that afternoon in a sunny courtyard, the white florets become a cluster of white pearls on golden stems set with diamonds just where sparkling dew might have fallen earlier that morning. From the journey to Sicily.
Cavolfiore earrings in 18ct yellow gold and set with seven bouton red orange coral 28cts. set with diamonds 0.3cts. Each earring measures approximately 20mm.
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.
