Ortigia

The island of Ortigia was where the Greeks first arrived to Sicily. The maze of streets are best enjoyed in the early morning light when the town is quiet and undisturbed by man or motorcar. When the streets are deserted and the doorways and windows have only spiders as visitors, then there is time and freedom to wander pensively. It was on one of these mornings that I spied some wrought iron work in a small window and created the Ortigia link. It would become a bracelet and even more successfully, a long necklace.

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.
