The key to this design and to Confucius that followed it, is a sense of colour. 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. The cut of the stone is all important and changes the intensity of the colour so that the stone that can sit alongside it cannot be chosen until both stones are cut and placed side by side. Many of the rings and earrings are unique because nature does not serve up an endless supply of perfect repeats - it is more creative! From the Journey to China.

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - silver, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you.
