Topkapi

Constantinople, the ancient city of Christendom, inspired a collection of unusual designs after Cassandra's visit there in 2000. The Topkapi Palace was a short walk from Sogukcesme Sokak street, where Cassandra stayed in the Sultanahmet. There, in one of the rooms of the palace, Cassandra found complete 'diamond encrusted tea services' and bowls full of the 'hubbly bubbly' pipe ends. It was the detail on one of these pipe ends that inspired the Topkapi design, with its intricate diamond settings.

Aquamarine

Aquamarine with its hues of blue and green is known as the sailor's gem ensuring safe travels across the seas. It is the birthstone for March. The colour in aquamarine is due to the presence of iron in the beryl crystal lattice with the most important deposits being found throughout Brazil as well as in Africa where the colours of blue can almost be a pungent blue.
