Frida

The Frida design is part of the 'Ola Mexicana' collection - 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, often used to take him his lunch in while working on his murals. For Frida her delicious lunch was her 'jewel', for Cassandra her baskets contain gemstones - aquamarine, kyanite, citrine - to name a few . Wrapped in a gold or silver ' basket ', the handle can be set with diamonds. The Frida and Frida Fringe designs include necklace pendants (interchangeable with earring pendants), earrings and cufflinks. Bespoke designs can be discussed in store with Cassandra 's team.

Tourmaline

Tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term 'turamali' meaning 'stone of mixed colours'. Tourmaline gemstones can be found in almost every colour including pink, red, green, blue, colourless and multi-coloured, making it one of Cassandra's favourite gemstones. Perhaps because of its myriad of colours it is the birthstone for October when the autumnal leaves fall in a cacophony of colour.

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.
