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. 

Silver

Silver is the most malleable of metals and when freshly polished takes a mirror like shine. All of the sterling silver used in Cassandra Goad jewellery is of the highest quality and crafted in one of our workshops in London. Cassandra always finds her silver from sustainable sources and where possible recycles the metal; never compromising on quality.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - yellow, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you. In some designs we can also mix metals in the same design.
