Corona Des Flores

Frida Khalo is often depicted wearing Mexican flower crowns ( 'Corona de Flores ') in photographs. I wanted to recreate this feeling of a joyous riot of floral colour by combining the four different cuts of gemstones in a mixture of coloured gems in one jewel. Facetted watermelon Brazilian tourmalines, briolette cut pink zirconia, cabochon Ethiopian opal drops sit with a pave of small diamonds and Norwegian Fuchsite in its rough mineral form.

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.

Tourmaline

Tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term 'turamali' meaning 'stone of mixed colours'. Tourmaline gemstones can be found in almost every colour including pink, red, green, blue, colourless and multi-coloured, making it one of Cassandra's favourite gemstones. Perhaps because of its myriad of colours it is the birthstone for October when the autumnal leaves fall in a cacophony of colour.

Craftsmanship and Sourcing

All Cassandra Goad jewellery is designed and made in the workshops in London.
As a gemmologist, the chemical composition and properties of gemstones have always fascinated Cassandra. Ever in search of the unusual and rare, she 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, his interpretation is vital to the overall feel of the jewel. The jewel is then mounted, assayed , polished and set. Many of Cassandra's jewels can be hand engraved with a personal message to make a unique bespoke gift.
