Mushroom small earring pendants 9ct yellow gold for hoops with leaf-shaped smooth amazonite drops measuring 15x10mm. From Cassandra's Classic Collection.
*Astrea hoops are sold separately.
The beautiful curling roof of a mushroom has always charmed me. So it seemed an obvious choice early on in my design journey for an earring finial detail. In three sizes: large is bold and strong, medium has a more delicate feel for lighter pendants and small sits at the delicate top of briolettes and pearls.
Like the deep waters of the Amazon river, Amazonite holds captivating shades of turquoise green. A feldspar mineral that forms in tabular crystal structures, usually cut as cabochon due to its fragile nature. It has a vitreous lustre, its colour sometimes revealing spider web like details.
This colourful gemstone is often cut as beads and looks wonderful juxtaposed with lapis and gold.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
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.
