Cassia launches new Sunray Letter and Sunbeam Heart collection

British fine jewellery designer and goldsmith Cassia Smith-Bingham has just unveiled her stunning new Sunray Letter and Sunbeam Heart collection.

Each initial pendant in the Sunray Letter collection is adorned with champleve enamel, hand engravings and diamonds. With a wide array of luxurious enamel colours to choose from – including royal blue, teal, turquoise, pink, green, and purple – each pendant is a personalised work of art.

Additionally, the Sunbeam heart pendant, crafted in 18k yellow gold with two-tone enamel and diamond accents, can be combined with the initials.

After the gold pendants are made in Smith-Bingham’s studio, the journey starts for each letter, as she employs the skill of an engraving and champleve enamelling master to add the finishing colour and design to each of her Sunray Initial pendants.

The hand engraving process for enamel is a “meticulous” and “time-consuming art”, and there are only a few individuals who specialise in both engraving and enamelling at this high standard. Each pendant purchased, helps to keep the ancient craft alive.

The pendants are then sent to the diamond master setters in the workshops of London’s historic jewellery quarter, where each letter is adorned with diamonds.

Smith-Bingham’s craftsmanship and attention to detail have attracted a “prestigious” clientele, including the likes of Selfridges, Dower and Hall, Harvey Nichols, Temperley, Vogue, Tatler, ES Magazine, Jesse James, and has numerous private commissions.

Hailing from the British county of Wiltshire, Smith-Bingham is a “highly skilled” goldsmith, gemmologist, diamond grader, and designer.

Her creative process begins in her Wiltshire studio, where she designs each jewellery masterpiece. These designs are then entrusted to a team of master craftsmen located across the UK. From hand engraving to diamond setting, every step is executed with exceptional precision and attention to detail.

Smith-Bingham’s passion for jewellery was ignited during a transformative trip to India in the early 90s. It was there, in the “tranquil” waterways of Kashmir, that she witnessed a jewellery artisan create a “remarkable” ring using the simplest of tools. This “awe-inspiring moment left an indelible mark on Cassia, sparking her lifelong love affair with jewellery”.

Throughout her creative journey, she has nurtured “invaluable connections” with gem-dealers and craftsmen in Kathmandu, where she designed her own collections.

Smith-Bingham has been committed to responsible practices since launching her brand. All her stones are ethically and responsibly sourced and her dedication to sustainable practices shines through. In line with her dedication to sustainable practices, lab grown diamonds are used in some of her creations.

Each piece is entirely British made using recycled gold and plastic free packaging. For every purchase made, a tree is planted using
