Biography:

Cassandra Goad started her business in 1985. Her first clients came by appointment to discuss designs with Cassandra herself in her studio. From there, she has moved to her present location on Sloane Street, which is spread over an impressive four floors and incorporates two showrooms, a spacious private room dedicated to special commissions, a design studio and an in-house workshop. Cassandra has a great understanding for wearable and affordable jewellery, her designs are classical but with a quirky touch and she was one of the first modern jewellery designers to develop an annual collection. In addition to her own designs and collections, Cassandra Goad is one of the few London jewellers to offer a truly bespoke service.Much of Cassandra Goad’s jewellery is interchangeable and adaptable and Cassandra liaises constantly with her workshop, working out the ‘mechanics’ of more complex interchangeability projects. For example, a pair of earrings can be worn as simple hoops, or dressed up with the addition of a delicate pendant; a necklace clasp can be adapted to become a pendant, a brooch or even a pair of earrings. Cassandra Goad is well known for her use of unusual stones. She is passionate about stones, sources beautiful and often unknown gems in her travels, and her reputation among stone suppliers allows her to have the pick of the bunch. Stones are chosen with exceptional care and include aquamarine, amethyst, citrine, charoite, kyanite, mandarin garnet, maw sit-sit, morganite, peridot, prehnite, prasiolite, pink sapphire, spinel, ruby, rutilated quartz, tanzanite, topaz, tourmaline... and, of course diamonds and pearls.
