Frida

The Frida family is inspired from Cassandra's travels to Mexico. This design is based on the basket that Frida Kahlo, the Mexican artist and wife of Diego Rivera, that she often used to take him his lunch while working on his murals.

Peridot

Peridot was found from 300BC on the Isle of St John in the Red Sea and crusaders bought it back for their catherdrals in the Middle Ages. When beautifully cut it has the colour of a freshly unfurled beech leaf in Spring- although it is actually the birthstone for August. Large stones are rare and when she finds them, Cassandra loves to use them for brooches and earrings.

Craftsmanship and Sourcing

All Cassandra Goad jewellery is designed and made in the workshops in London.
As a gemmologist, the chemical composition and properties of gemstones have always fascinated Cassandra. Ever in search of the unusual and rare, she 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, his interpretation is vital to the overall feel of the jewel. The jewel is then mounted, assayed , polished and set. Many of Cassandra's jewels can be hand engraved with a personal message to make a unique bespoke gift.
