Ozymandias

The regal and bold Ozymandias design with its vibrant trios of facetted stones was inspired by the great poem by Shelley that he wrote soon after part of a statue of King Rameses II (Ozymandias in Greek) was found: 'My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings.' Cassandra's rings of iolites, amethyst and blue topaz lie set in bold tomb-like settings with a quartet of diamonds and outer bands that echo pillars of the Egyptian temples at Thebes.

Garnet

From the Latin for grain 'granatum' -because of its rounded crystals and similarity to the red pomegranate seeds. The scientist in Cassandra has always been fascinated by this isomorphous series that gives rise to gems that are from colourless through all colours of the rainbow. With the power to give eternal happiness, health and wealth when worn it is not surprising that Kings and Queens have often worn garnets throughout history.
