La Martorana

In the small church of La Martorana, curated by Greek officials for a Norman King, you are astounded. The mosaics seem to reflect the patchwork of cultures that is Sicily. I sat one afternoon after lunch in the cool of La Martorana, and wondered how to tell the story of these mosaics in a jewel.

My pencil drawings of the intricate, geometric patterns had a simplicity that I liked instantly and consequently, the La Martorana earrings and necklace pendant are made in only white and yellow gold.

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 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.
