Temple of Heaven

"Of all Peking's enchanting sights, the beauty of the Altar of Heaven is the hardest to describe. It's sublime austerity is mocked by words. It is what it is - the most fitting architectural expression of man's highest aspirations in the world" - John Blofeld: City of Lingering Splendour, 1961

'I have always found this quote the best description of the magical building that is The Temple of Heaven. The geometric patterns on the ends of the roof tiles led me to sketch out the idea of the Temple of Heaven earrings. It was important that each section should move, so the little links needed to be strong, yet discreet.

It takes a brave jewellery designer not to fill every part of a design with stone or gold. To leave 'air space', as we call it in the workshop, is when a design is good enough, bold enough, strong enough, that you can start to take away the gold and leave space. In this design: space is the luxury.

Diamond

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.

Craftsmanship and Sourcing

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.
