Cameo Appearance: Your Portrait in Gems

Holly Dyment makes bespoke jewelry even more personal with birthstones and Picasso-like caricatures. 

In second-century Rome, carved-stone intaglio portraits were prized for their intricate beauty and supposed mystical powers. Toronto-based jeweler Holly Dyment channels that handcrafted magic in her made-to-order rings, pendants, and cuff links, which are portraits in enamel and precious stones. “I started when a friend commissioned a loved one’s likeness,” Dyment, 56, explains. “I liked the idea of a new kind of cameo with personal touches like birthstones, times of birth, and favorite colors.”

From $2,700; 866-301-6873; hollydyment.com.
