The Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage in Spain is well known and the many paths that lead to the tomb of St James are symbolised in the furrows of the scallop shell. Cassandra's earrings are directly inspired by tiny scallop shells she found on the beach. From Cassandra's Classic Collection.
Silver ear studs. Each earring measures approximately 9x11mm.
Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
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.
