"Camilla has a fascinating and considered design process and she puts so much care into every aspect of her designs. I’m very lucky to have this gorgeous ring that reminds me of the Rye rock pools at sunset. Camilla guided me through every detail, from selecting from the most stunning, unique gems, through to testing the ring size and composing the gems in the rose gold setting. I cannot stop looking at this incredibly designed piece of jewellery that I will enjoy for a lifetime. "
"My brief called for ring with a locally sourced sapphire representing my son Indigo, featuring reclaimed gold from a family ring, incorporating elements of Art Deco design. Camilla wowed me with the most incredible inky-blue, hand-mined, ethically sourced Australian sapphire, then further wowed me with a sophisticated yet mind-blowing design, with all my requested elements. She didn’t even bat an eyelid when I cam in saying, ‘I had a dream that it had rubies!’ Excitedly we looked at each other. Her response: ‘Of course it does!’ What a delight. Camilla, you have created for me a work of art that I absolutely love that will forever be a part of our family’s history. Thank you."
"I wanted a beautiful, elegant ring that was ‘out-of-the-ordinary’ but not crazy. Something modern, classic and absolutely stunning. We met in Camilla’s studio and discussed the project. Through our conversation, Camilla involved me in the creative process and drew the concept. She brilliantly translated our conversation into a beautiful design. I am absolutely thrilled with my stunning ring! Thank you Camilla! "
"Working with Camilla on this ring was so much fun. My favourite part was sitting down with her and choosing the gems, I walked out of there on such a high from this. Camilla is so lovely and she is so talented and passionate about what she does and her enthusiasm rubs off on you. I nicknamed my ring "Spectacular Spectacular' and even now weeks later I cannot stop looking at it. Everyone needs at least one Camilla Gough piece in their life - she's amazing and so is her jewellery."
"Working with Camilla was like hanging out with an old friend. She sensitively draws out your story and the essence of your soul weaving it all into stunning wearable art laced with her timeless creativity and individuality. Somehow Camilla intrinsically understood exactly what I was hoping for with my ring and not only created a wonderful piece but exceeded all my expectations crafting a piece that is treasured and worn with pride."
"In my experience Camilla really listens to her clients and understands what they are trying to achieve. She is so creative and really thinks outside the square when putting forward her thoughts. The jewellery Camilla has made for us has always been delivered on time and has always been above our expectations once completed."
"Camilla Gough was an absolute pleasure to work with. We are truly honoured to have three pieces of jewellery designed by Camilla, for our family. The personalised service and bespoke designs were above and beyond what we have ever imagined. We love how each jewellery piece has been designed with our life stories entwined, that we shared with Camilla. The design journey was enjoyable and exciting. We loved being a part of the process, watching Camilla's creative journey. Camilla ensured we were happy each step of the way and it was a joy to see her sketches come to life. Camilla is a unique talented jewellery artist, who is also a warming and welcoming positive person to be around. We are always at ease to discuss anything with Camilla. She is such a visionary and could quickly interpret our thoughts into amazing design sketches. We were beyond excited to meet a jewellery designer who could share their story and knowledge of their diamonds and gems. We have learnt so much from Camilla, especially the many different coloured beautiful stunning diamonds.... (we are still dreaming about the chameleon diamond!) Thank you Camilla for your heartfelt designs and time. We appreciate and cherish each jewellery piece with love... and proudly wear everyday."
"Camilla has a way of transforming elements of your story into truly exquisite pieces of wearable art. Her designs are adventurous and craftsmanship faultless, resulting in comment-worthy original creations. I have commissioned two pieces from Camilla and thoroughly the process each time. She is a delight to work with and the results have been unexpectedly breathtaking. I’m looking forward to working with her again for my 10th anniversary ring next year."
"Bryce thought it was important to create the engagement ring of Jess' dreams so he searched high and low for the perfect bespoke jeweller. Bryce really loved how Camilla took the time to learn about his story with Jess and to get to know her style and likes/dislikes. Camilla was very patient and ensured that the journey of creating the rings was an enjoyable and rewarding one. Jess loves that so much time, thought and care went in to creating the rings and that no one else has anything like it. She loves admiring the tonally different gems, which are ever changing in different light, and the different segments of coloured gold. People always comment on how beautiful and unique the set is and say that they've never seen anything like it."
"I had admired Camilla’s work for some time, and was so excited to have her design both my engagement ring and our wedding rings. From the get go, Camilla was warm and welcoming, eager to understand us and the bond that joined us, in order to help us design rings to wear and enjoy forever. She came with many suggestions, while trying to get to the essence of us as a couple. She exudes creativity, with absolutely impeccable technical skills. I am continually amazed as I follow her work and the stunning designs she creates. On top of this, Camilla is an absolute joy to be around. We have so enjoyed every interaction with her, including follow up visits to catch up and have our rings polished to new, and having her design some beautiful jewellery to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I recall, not long after receiving my gorgeous engagement ring, being on a train in Stockholm, with a man sitting opposite me who kept staring at me. I felt a bit uncomfortable, wondering why he was staring. Then, after some 10 minutes he asked me, in English, about the ring “Are those rubies in your ring?” he asked. I replied “yes they are. And yellow and pink diamonds”. He replied “that is beautiful. I am a jeweller and have never seen anything like that.” I held out my hand so that he could look at the ring. He admired it and said “that is gorgeous. You are going to have a beautiful life”. Then he stood up. And exited the train. It was such a surreal, beautiful, and powerful moment that will stay with me forever. As will the absolute enjoyment of wearing Camilla’s pieces. "
"It was so fun and exciting working with Camilla to design a ring for my wife to mark the occasion of her 40th birthday. We knew we wanted something fine and delicate, but also full of sparkle. Camilla came back to me super quickly with intricate drawings and designs which blew me away. Camilla sourced the sweetest little gems for it — rubies, sapphires and diamonds, and jammed as many as she could into the fine gold band! And then we kept it secret until the birthday itself. To say my wife was thrilled would be an understatement. She wears it with joy every day. Thank you, Camilla, for making the process fun, easy and enjoyable. It's not every day you commission a piece of jewellery for someone special in your life, and it really was worth it."
"My wife and I have been huge fans of Camilla’s distinctive designs since Lisa’s Cherry Blossom engagement ring in 2007, followed by liquid erosion wedders for both of us in 2008. For Lisa’s 40th this year, I reached out to Camilla with a fairly ‘out-there’ idea — could we capture Lisa’s love for the Australian landscape, in which she spends so much of her working life, in a beautiful liquid erosion pendant, and combine it with our love of snakes? I sent a hand-sketched concept and a photo of a snake sculpture near Daylesford which we both love, and the process started. Camilla captured the essence of these disparate elements perfectly in her sketches, and we refined the idea, including gem combinations and a hand-engraved dahlia, representative of Lisa’s handmade clothing label, on the reverse, entirely through emails whilst we managed the on-again-off-again lockdown cycle. The pendant arrived the day before Lisa’s birthday, and she was speechless on the morning when I presented it to her, delighted that so many of the things special to her and to both of us had been embodied in such a stunning and unique present. Thanks, Camilla, for trusting in my “out-there” idea, for spinning it into your own fabulous style, and for making an extraordinary and extraordinarily beautiful present for me to give to Lisa. She absolutely adores it :-) "
"Our first contact with Camilla was during lockdown, although I’d been following her on Instagram for a while. Camilla had a spectacular padparadsha sapphire which started this whole journey together. I had a BIG birthday coming up, so initially through emails and phone calls Camilla managed to prize out little snippets of information about what I liked and came up with the incredible apricot rose. During the whole process I felt like an excited child waiting for emails and messages with updates on progress. It was all such an enjoyable experience and I count myself very lucky to have found Camilla to make this work of art for me. She is a very talented and lovely lady and I still can’t stop admiring my ring!"
