Chinese Parasol Flower

I loved the pastry-like cut outs of the flowers I found near the city of Xi'an. They reminded me of the fruit pies my grandmother used to make for the week ends. Later that day, I saw a ceiling full of Chinese parasols, their flower-like shapes lapping each other like a flower bed oveflowing with flowers in summer time. So, I took this flat, flower shape and created the Chinese Parasol design - layering the flowers like the layers of pine tree branches that are depicted, so often in Chinese paintings.

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she regularly encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - silver, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you.
