Inspired by the Scandinavian geometric patterns of the 1950's. The boldness of the rub over settings of Cirkel creates a ring that is truly modern in feel. Diamonds of different sizes run across the finger sparkling as you turn your hand. Sapphires, rubies, emeralds and aquamarines can also be incorporated into the design if you wish.
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.
All Cassandra Goad jewellery is designed and made in the
workshops in London.
As a gemmologist, the chemical composition and properties of gemstones have always fascinated Cassandra. Ever in search of the unusual and rare, she 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, his interpretation is vital to the overall feel of the jewel. The jewel is then mounted, assayed , polished and set. Many of Cassandra's jewels can be hand engraved with a personal message to make a unique bespoke gift.
Pine cones and larch cones dangle like temptations from frosty branches. Finding their reflection at the water's edge before the snowfall. High seas and boats. Knots in ropes. Sails adrift in the wind. This voyage was a patchwork of inspirations of Scandanavia.
