Taj Mahal

Inside the mosque adjacent to the great Taj Mahal there is a ceiling pattern high up in the apex of the roof: A complex, geometrical, radiating pattern created from intersecting arcs.

Geometry was never just an adornment in Mughal style, it was a means of evoking a world beyond earthly experience. The universe was deemed to have a mathematical basis and so, by incorporating this, it gave the works of man a transcendent quality - a true heaven on earth.

I remember being there at Divali (when India is lit by candles and fireworks), each candle twinkling like a diamond. This was the reason why I set my Taj Mahal with a pave of diamonds, in two layers, cementing that love, each in harmony with one another.

Zircon

Almost more fiery than a diamond, Zircons have been used in jewellery for centuries. Cassandra adores the deep rich blues she finds in Cambodia that remind her of the Paraiba tourmalines she used to buy when she first set out in the jewellery world.
