Inspired by the traditional Japanese themes for the Four Seasons: with Spring symbolized by Plum blossom, Chrysanthemum flowers for Summer, Maple leaves for Autumn & Bamboo for Winter. From the Journey to Japan.
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.
Steeped in tradition, elegance and excellence yet controlled and restrained Japan intrigued Cassandra. The collection weaves ancient tea ceremonies, family 'mons' and the symbols of the four seasons into jewels of differing colours of gold that are as timeless as their inspirations.
