Customer reaction to my Portrait Cameo Jewelry
It took me around 30 minutes to be able to talk again and I could only manage to say that she was beautiful and now she will be with me forever.
Thank you for carving not only a beautiful portrait but also the feeling behind the picture. I will be forever grateful…- by Paloma

For 30 years I have been gemstone carving, hand engraving, carving family crests in gold and stone, gold-smithing and creating custom jewelry designs. I carved my first portrait cameo in 1995. I am celebrating my 20th year of creating Cameo Portraits in 2015.
In 2007 I was asked to create a gift that was presented to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by the State of Virginia. I designed a brooch with a cameo portrait of Pocahontas, set in platinum and encircled by natural pearls.
The historic Pocahontas Cameo is now in the Queen’s private collection at Buckingham Palace.
I have also created Jewelry for Stephen Harper the Prime-minister of Canada, Garde Gardom the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, a Senator in the United States, Lady Diana Gibson-Watt, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Sir Edward Fox and many other prominent clients and collectors around the world.
I have created some Cameo Portraits where I am bound to absolute secrecy as to the recipient of the gift. I respect this pledge and maintain confidentiality.
“Gareth has been carving cameos with such precision and grace that they have attracted the attention of several discerning collectors including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II…”
“Gareth’s Pocahontas Cameo is an exquisite tribute to the 16th Century original that was presented to Pocahontas by King James I and Queen Anne…”
