Small Porte Ouvrant (keyhole) necklace pendant with a silver door and frame, the door set with diamonds and turquoise enamel on one side. Inspired by the myriad of stone doorways in Morocco that open to reveal inner courtyards, and by the carved wooden doorways opening into gardens of succulents and scented jasmines tumbling into fountains decorated with mosaics leading into a new world. From the journey to Morocco.

The pendant, including the loop, measures approximately 36x12mm

The pendant is shown here on an Elixir Light chain.

Model wears an 18 inch Finetrace chain.

Porte Ouvrant

As we start to emerge from Lockdown, this pendant feels amuletic in design with its opening door leading the wearer to new ways of thinking, new opportunities, new beginnings at the start of a new era. The beautiful key-hole outline shape of the Moorish doors always seems to invite one to look in, to enquire and to wonder. In the bustling Medina with my sketch book I imagined doorways with swivelling doors that would have differing decoration on each side of the door and through them I created new imaginary vistas. I have called it Porte Ouvrant because I like the French turn of phrase that suggests that the door is not just opened, but opening.

Silver

Silver is the most malleable of metals and when freshly polished takes a mirror like shine. All of the sterling silver used in Cassandra Goad jewellery is of the highest quality and crafted in one of our workshops in London. Cassandra always finds her silver from sustainable sources and where possible recycles the metal; never compromising on quality.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - yellow, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you. In some designs we can also mix metals in the same design.
