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.
Taken from the Greek word "amethystos", meaning sober; amethyst quartz has illustrious calming properties, protecting wearers with a sense of tranquillity and soberness. Famed for its regal deep purple colour, February's birthstone is said to enhance your focus and open your mind to critical thinking and clarity, and to also protect from inebriation. It is often worn by bishops set in a ring. Most are sourced from alluvial deposits in Brazil, Madagascar, Zambia and Uruguay, and Cassandra likes to juxtapose their splendour with rubies and aquamarine, or even green African garnets.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra 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. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
