Quattro Canti

The Quattro Canti crossroads in the centre of Palermo are unlike any other in the world. Majestic, triumphant and beautifully designed and decorated, they are still the heart and axis of this ancient city with views to the points of the compass. Four basins festooned in agrumi lead upwards to the four saints and further up to the four kings. It was the festoons of fruit that inspired my halos and wound them around my halos.

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.
