Talya necklace in 9ct yellow gold set with five facetted bright green chrome diopside 4.5mm (approx. total 2.5cts). The stones are spaced at 2" intervals along the length of 16" with extension to 18", with CG logo tag and trigger clasp. From the journey to Morocco.
A rarely known gemstone, chrome diopside gleams in brilliantly vivid, bright green hues, a feature caused by the chromium element within it. A calcium magnesium silicate, with a relatively low hardness, it is best set as a pendant or earrings to avoid being scratched. Some stones have mesmerizing chatoyancy and asterism, as well as being magnetic.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
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.
