Peridot was first found in 300BC on St. John's Island in the Red Sea, and crusaders brought it back to their cathedrals in the Middle Ages. When beautifully cut it has the colour of a freshly unfurled beech leaf in Spring, a gemstone greatly admired for its rich 'oily' green shades from the mineral olivine. Large stones are rare and when she finds them, Cassandra loves to use them for brooches and earrings. As the birthstone for August, a precious peridot can bring you prosperity and happiness, welcoming new beginnings and paving the way for courage, wealth and wisdom.
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.
