Kariye Cross

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. 

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - silver, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you.
