Delivery & Returns


Cowries have been collected for millennia: African tribes in the Omo valley of Ethiopia decorate themselves with strings of Cowrie shells, children find them on the beaches of Norfolk and Cornwall and in Japan they are often made into their beautiful Netsuke . They are treasures to all peoples and for some have been an early form of currency: shell money! The Cowrie design was one of Cassandra's earliest designs using shells collected from a Cornish beach and she continues to collect them wherever she travels.


Silver is the most malleable of metals and when freshly polished takes a mirror like shine. All of the sterling silver used in Cassandra Goad jewellery is of the highest quality and crafted in one of our workshops in London. Cassandra always finds her silver from sustainable sources and where possible recycles the metal; never compromising on quality

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.
