He really stands out against the tonal blue in the background. When I wear the cameo, everyone comments on what a stunning piece it is.

Signet Rings - Family Crests & Coats of Arms

Hand Carved 'In Intaglio' with Traditional Techniques

The Only Family Crest Signet Rings that Protect the Crest Stone from Damage.

I have invented a unique capsule design that secures the stone in a Platinum bezel. This gives superb protection and is available on my Premium rings. My regular signet rings also set the stone flush or lower than the gold surround to protect the stone.

Other signet rings have the stone sitting above the metal bezel. Leaving it vulnerable to breaking.  I guarantee the stone against breakage and will replace a stone set in my signet rings at no charge.

I can also duplicate or replace stones from another ring. Crests can be carved into Stone or Gold for Cufflinks, Rings or Pendants.

Gareth is the only gem carver in North America who uses a gem lathe and specialist Diamond points. Visit the Family Crests page for more info. Hard to find stones such as Lapis Lazuli, Layered Agate, Sardonyx, Bloodstone, Carnelian and Jade. Order via my Family Crest Inquiry Form. I will send a set of ring sizers to ensure an accurate size for the finished signet ring.
