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 regularly 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.

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.

Turkey & Bulgaria

The sultans of the Topkapi palace in Constantinople had tea cups encrusted with diamonds and hubbly bubbly pipes decorated with gold filigree. Marvelling at these, Cassandra created her Turkish collection as she travelled on with her sketchbooks to Chora, St Sofia, Ephesus and Kariye. From there, Cassandra discovered Bulgaria. From the overlapping domes of Nevski cathedral to the hidden Ivan Rilski monastery in the pine forests outside of Sofia; from the scent of Bulgarian roses to the hillsides carpeted in wild flowers.
