Octavia 18ct white gold earring pendants set with diamond pave and carved red coral strawberries 8mm (to hang on Astrea hoops). The coral is sustainably sourced or recarved from old material. From Cassandra's Classic Collection.
*Astrea hoops are sold separately.
The delicate pointed Octavia loop of diamonds sits on top of many of my pendants from pearls to delicately carved briolette stones. These interchangeable pendants hang from the plain gold, silver, and pave set diamond Astrea hoops. Have one pair and you will soon want another...
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.
