It was the Portuguese who brought the tambourine to the Brazilians and now the thought of Brazil and its carnival without it seems an impossibility. My golden pandeiro is double sided so you can have any combination of diamonds, or wear it plain if you prefer. I have also made it in silver and in all of them the tiny Zils tinkle as they move and as you move, just as in a real tambourine.
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.

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.
'If only I could have arrived like a migrating bird to the mouth of the January river- Rio de Janeiro- and plunged in to the azure ocean. What a beautiful land I would have seen.' Cassandra's words from the start of her Vibrant Brazil collection.
