Mushroom small earring pendants in 9ct yellow gold for hoops with pear shaped smooth red coral drops 10x8mm. 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.
Precious coral, in a palette of soft oranges and reds, ranges from opaque and waxy to translucent and vitreous. Originating from marine environments, this is one of the most ancient of gems, with its unique concentric structure like a spider's web. Found in Celtic tombs from the Iron Age, one of the seven treasures in Buddhist scriptures, and thought to be a powerful talisman, it has a rich and fascinating history.
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.
