The Turkish Collection would not be complete without a cross, so
I designed a simple cross, Kariye, named after the Kariye Camii in
Constantinople - originally a Byzantine Greek Orthodox church with
exceptional Christian frescoes. In the 16th century it became a
mosque and in 1945 it became a museum. It was converted in August
2020 back to a mosque. Through one small cross, its design tells of
holiness across the centuries.
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.
