Custom Jewelry For Men - Cameo Portraits, Cameo Rings, Desktop Cameos


The cameo arrived this morning. Oh My is absolutely incredible!!!! You captured her image in such detail.

I cannot thank enough for this unbelievable piece of art. This means the world to me.

Again thank you for all your hard work and incredible talent. Gratefully...Marq

This is one of my favorite stories. Designing cameo jewelry for men to wear is a rare and interesting challenge. I was contacted by Marq to make a cameo with the image of his wife.

Marq needed a cameo necklace that was strong enough to wear every day. The couple has two Harley Davidson motorbikes and rides them on month-long tours of the United States. The necklace had to be strong enough to stay on in all the conditions he would encounter on his road trips.

The Bolo tie was designed for cowboys to wear all day long in the saddle. I made a sliding mechanism that was pinned to the back of the cameo pendant. The necklace cord was solid leather with the ends capped by Bolo tips.

Marq's wife loved dragonflies. I engraved an inscription, kept secret by request, accented by engraved dragonflies.

How I design Jewelry for Men

When designing for a man I have found that strong colors work very well.  I would suggest white on wedgewood – blue, white on brown and white on black.

A non traditional shape like a rectangular panel, a rectangle with rounded corners or a trapezoid can look very good on a man. For an organic look the cameo pendant can be worn with a single brown or black leather cord, a braided leather cord, black or brown rubber.

An exciting modern option is to select a chain made from Titanium, stainless steel or Black Tungsten. Or more traditionally Silver, white or yellow Gold or Platinum.

Three Green Agate Cameo Rings

Three rings were made to match the original antique ring.  This was made into a pendant to be a surprise gift for his wife. The ring with Atlas was for the father, the Athena ring and the Poseidon ring were for the two sons.
