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.
Roses have been known since ancient times and Cleopatra is said to have prepared her barge with rose petals' before meeting Anthony... the Rose designs were inspired both by Cassandra's love of roses and this epic story. Reading the story of Lord Carnarvon, the Rosetta stone, of Champollion and his race to read the hieroglyphics, the Alice letters were born- now a well loved jewel of Cassandra's Classic Collection.
