Gareth has designed and made bespoke jewelry for individuals for 30 years. His signature style is to make a gemstone carving, the ‘hero’ of the jewel.
The best work is made in 18Kt Gold or Platinum. Designs can often be enhanced with Diamonds and Gemstone accents.
The design interview is where Gareth acts as a detective. He searches to discover his customers sense of style, learn their story and with cameo portraits, the story of who is in the portrait photos.
This can be done via phone, email or Skype video chats. Design sketches are shared, feedback is considered and final design proposals are submitted.
Gareth likes to visit customers in their homes, if possible. He will sketch design ideas in front of the customer, find out their wishes and discuss their options.
Consider having a special jewel using your own gemstones. Diamonds and gems from existing jewelry can be re-imagined into new jewelry designs. The Pink diamond and carved pink gemstone necklace and brooch pin is a fine example of this.
Gareth’s skills as an award winning goldsmith, gemstone carver and engraver can create very striking ‘one of a kind’ jewelry.
One of a kind Jewel with a Pink Diamond, White Diamonds and a Pink Gemstone
An example of a dual purpose necklace and brooch with a hand-carved gemstone as the hero. This stunning 18kt Gold Jewel can be worn as a pendant or as a brooch.
This is set with a very rare 1 ct Pink Diamond, valued at $200,000, and accented with 7 large white Diamonds, valued at $90,000. My fee for carving the Morganite Crystal and the goldsmithing was $10000. The gemstone is carved from pink Morganite, a sister stone to Emerald.
One of my favorite custom jewels from my portfolio. I created this for a wonderful person for whom I made fine jewelry over a 15-year time frame.
