Designed by Niremius, the ceiling of the Stabian baths is decorated with concentric circles that remind me of the patterns of a whirlpool. The plaster circles were transformed into pencil sketches, and in my workshop, they later became four circles of gold with the water of the baths evoked by the sparkling pave of diamonds. And in celebration of 35 years last year, I added a 5th row to the Niremius pendant.
Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
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.
