Pina

San Miguel de Allende is about 3 hours from Mexico City, a colonial town of beautiful baroque churches, delicious restaurants and cafés and charming hotels. Everyday as I came in and out of the courtyard I ate breakfast in, an original fresco of a 'Pina' (Spanish for pineapple) caught my eye. One afternoon, I sketched it out as a pendant adding a sprinkle of diamonds just where the leaves would have been.

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - silver, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you.
