Niremius, the architect, built the Forum baths at Pompei around AD 79, the ceiling of which had elegant stucco decoration of concentric circles which inspired the circular design of the pendant (of one, and up to five circular rows). When Cassandra was creating this design it felt important to her that the circles appeared to float separately from one another (and this she achieved by holding the circles together with knife edge wires that look thin and delicate on the surface but are infact strong and secure). Making perfectly spaced circles is harder than making circles that touch so the final stages of this design require great concentration for the craftsman. From the journey to Italy.
Niremius 5 row 18ct white gold necklace pendant set with five rows of diamonds 3.5cts. This piece can be worn as a pendant or as a brooch. All pendants sold without chains.
Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra 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. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
