Custom cameo portrait ring. Hand carved with the portrait of a man in Lapis Lazuli. Set in a gold ring with Lapis lazuli inlaid panels on the shoulders. These are protected and enhanced by gold Acanthus leaf details pinned onto the sides.
Second is a beautiful Portrait Cameo Ring. The cameo is carved in a white on blue layered Agate. The Ring was a gift to a mother, carved with the image of one of her daughters.
The carving is set in a 14kt Yellow Gold ring. Presented in a handmade Ebony and Maple wood ring box. This is an interesting challenge as the smaller size of the stone makes detailing more difficult. Cameo ring stones can be the same layered Agate gems that I use for pendants and brooches.
The smaller size does allow me to create beautiful cameos carved into faceted gemstones such as Aquamarine, Amethyst, Citrine, Lapis Lazuli and even Precious Opal.
