"I love the pattern of the ropes on circular safety rings. It reminds me of lovely summer holidays with my sketchbook and pencil, golden sand crystals caught between the pages. So, I made my Salvavida design with tiny diamonds sparkling in the centres like sunlight twinkling on the water. Other times I set blue sapphires to remind me of the sea. Wear one as a bracelet or put two together as a short necklace, or perhaps four as a long chain over a silk shirt."
Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
All Cassandra Goad jewellery is designed and made in the
workshops in London.
As a gemmologist, the chemical composition and properties of gemstones have always fascinated Cassandra. Ever in search of the unusual and rare, she 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, his interpretation is vital to the overall feel of the jewel. The jewel is then mounted, assayed , polished and set. Many of Cassandra's jewels can be hand engraved with a personal message to make a unique bespoke gift.
