Qin & Han

The unification of the two great Chinese dynasties: the Qin ( 221-207 BC) and the Han (206BC to 220 AD) inspired the juxtaposition of colours in the Qin and Han ring and earrings.

Amethyst

Amethyst traditionally worn to instil a sober and serious mind, is the stone worn by bishops, the colour echoing their purple robes. Alluvial deposits in Brazil, Madagascar, Zambia and Uruguay are the source of most amethyst, the birthstone for February. Cassandra likes to juxtapose it with rubies and aquamarine or green African garnets.
