Cassandra's Shanghai design is inspired on the generous bends of the Whangpoo river as it weaves around the city of Shanghai. The bold gold ' S' shape of these earrings weaves around the beautiful colours of the facetted and cabochon stones that Cassandra has specially cut , leading on to the detachable drop with its diamond set cap. From the journey to China.
Shanghai earrings in 18ct white gold with oval facetted green beryl, blue topaz, cabochon aquamarine and prasiolite briolettes set with pave diamonds. Each earring measures approximately 55mm.
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.
