The Quattro Canti crossroads in the centre of Palermo are unlike any other in the world. Majestic, triumphant and beautifully designed and decorated, they are still the heart and axis of this ancient city with views to the points of the compass. Four basins festooned in agrumi lead upwards to the four saints and further up to the four kings. It was the festoons of fruit that inspired my halos and wound them around my halos.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
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.
