Melissae di Erice

The goddess of love, Astarte, is revered at Erice. It was there that Daedalus was tasked to make a golden honeycomb for her. Honeycomb - and therefore, bees - are inextricably linked with Sicily, so I named this collection 'Melissea', meaning 'bee', Di Erice. In the hexagons of the honeycomb on the rings and pendants, a small bee and diamond are hidden.

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - silver, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you.
