Tortuga

Swimming with tortugas, or turtles, off the coast of Mexico, diving deep amongst the corals, in and out if the underwater gardens, was magical. Turtles personify grace and elegance and calm, and as the saying goes : 'Slow and steady wins the race'. Cassandra has designed her tortugas with shells engraved as their natural shells and the underside like the underside of their bellies. The launch of the Tortuga design was on World Turtle Day in 2018. The designs include earrings, necklace pendants, necklaces, rings and bracelets.

Blue Topaz

Topaz is an Aluminum fluoro- hyrdroxyl- silicate that occurs in large crystals mostly in Brazil. Its slightly turquoise blue hue, is similar to that of aquamarine. It is perhaps this colour that makes it the stone symbolising friendship and love, honest and fidelity. It is the birthstone for November.
