St Xenia is the patron saint of St Petersburg. Inspired by her story, I designed the cross around a detail from an Orthodox ecclesiastical brass lantern carefully engraving the detail on both sides of the circular cross to accentuate the geometric pattern.
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.
All Cassandra Goad jewellery is designed and made in the

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.
Count Orlov gave his lover the Empress Catherine jewels beyond compare. Locked up in the dimly lit corridors of the Kremlin, they inspired Cassandra to create new jewels sparkling with gemstones. The St Basil's bracelet mixes enamels and cabochon gems. The pushkin cufflinks are timelessly elegant.
