Cassandra's Armada cross is a direct inspiration from the Elizabethan jewels around the time of the Spanish Armada in 1588. Many of the jewels of this era were of gold set with pearls and the portraits of Queen Elizabeth I show her bedecked in pearls that were highly prized and mostly reserved to be worn by royalty. From Cassandra's Classic Collection.

Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
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.
