Dear Christian, I've been meaning to mail you since I got back from Sorrento at the end of September. I came in to your shop to request a copy of my mum's cameo and left purchasing a beautiful ring (far more than my initial plan) that I absolutely love. Every time I have have worn it, someone has complimented me on how stunning the ring is. I really appreciated your patience as I know it took me a long time to decide!!
Many thanks again and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.
The ring has arrived today. What can I say. It is absolutely fantastic The sculpting of the cameo is brilliant (it must be a challenge to do a 3/4 profile face) The setting with the old Greek writing and red coral bead (that is one real chunk of silver). Its everything I wanted and more. I am so grateful that you took this project on board and produced for me the finest and unique piece of jewelry that I own. Thank you ever so much and thank the carver and your poor long suffering silversmith who we push so hard for our ideas to work. Christian you and your family are good friends and real pleasure to do business with. I now own something giving me great memories of the times Giulia and I spent in your shop laughing as we designed and redesigned this stunning ring that I am extremely proud of. Long may our friendship continue and hope to see you again soon.Giulia sends her kindest regards.
I have just received chain and I am very happy with it and I thank you for your excellent aftersales service .Have a good weekend.

Thank you Christian and apologies for the delay.
I am more than pleased with your customer service and jewelry! Thank you again and hope to order from Bimonte Sorrento again in the near future.
Hello! I picked up my package tonight, and opened it when I got home. The ring is simply stunning!! I love it even more than I thought I would.
We hope to get back to Sorrento one of these days.
Again, thank you for the beautiful creation.
Earrings arrived today, faster than orders I placed in THIS country. And they are just stunning. In all the years of traveling through Italy (and making those stops at “cameo factories” in Sorrento), I’ve never seen smaller earrings so beautifully carved and detailed. You did not exaggerate about these and I am so happy I found Bimonte Sorrento and that you steered me in the right direction for what I needed.
I will be sure to keep all paperwork and cards and when I return to Sorrento (as I do every so many years), I will be sure to come to you for more jewelry. In the meantime I will make sure I tell all my Italy-bound friends about your services and beautiful jewelry.
Thank you for taking care of this so promptly. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Forgive me for not writing sooner. I wanted you to know that the two flower cameo necklaces purchased from you for my two granddaughters were wonderful surprises for them. I gave one as a gift for Sarah's 8th grade graduation and the other for Anna's eleventh birthday. I also have the framed cowrie cameo of three tall ships done by Franco Balzano beautifully displayed in our living room. These three Bimonte cameos will be treasured by our family in the years ahead. They will also be pleasant reminders of the two evenings I visited your shop and you patiently and joyfully explained how many of the remarkable and exquisite Bimonte cameos are designed and created by you and other family members and local artists.
Visiting with you in your shop was one of the best experiences of my month long travels in Europe. I sincerely hope you are correct in saying that "...one day I know you will return to Sorrento." The truth is, every time I look at the tall ships cameo in its beautifully framed display case, I am back in Sorrento in thought, remembering those pleasant evenings in your Bimonte Cameos and Coral Shop.
Well to tell?!
I too late have late found out this magic place!
I have made the order on the eve of Catholic Christmas.
The parcel has come after new year, but just to orthodox Christmas!
The gift has turned out magnificent.
My wife loves classics and dreamt about cameos since the childhood. Dreams come true!
Thanks Christian to you for a small Christmas miracle!
Hello signor Christian,
Yesterday the order arrived in good condition.
The bracelets are very nice and I'm wearing them right now.
Thank you for your excellent service.
And have a nice evening too.
Best regards Maaike
Buono sara Christian and Fiona,
I Have received the earrings and they are lovely. Many thanks for your help and service. will be in touch again.
Christian, imagine my delight today to receive my beautiful cameo ring that is a PERFECT fit and to receive your touchingly generous gift of a matching pendant! You are so very thoughtful of your customers. Thank you for this very special package today!
Thank you thank you thank you - my beautiful piece of treasure has arrived and it is absolutely beautiful. I cannot believe how it is exactly like it was pictured on your website. The craftsmanship ,color and design are just perfect. It arrived in Australia at my doorstep all within a week from the time I ordered. Once again thank you I will certainly be telling friends and family how easy it was ordering - you answerd all my questions over the emails. Very professional !
Ciao - kathie
I have just arrived home from work to find my cameos waiting for me.
My goodness - I cannot believe they arrived so quickly.
The cameos are absolutely exquisite and the detail in both pieces is unbelievable. They are made with such precision and love and for that I thank you so much.
I will wear them again and again and enjoy them for ever. I am sure my friends will be very jealous, but hope they too one day will visit Bimonte and buy some of your beautiful creations.
We will see you in August 2013 for our ninth visit and I will be wearing one, if not all of my lovely cameos from Bimonte.
Thank you again and Best Wishes to your family
Wendy and David
Buon Giorno Signor Christian,
We have received our Sirena this morning before 10:00am and she is exquisite! The workmanship & the silver mounting is beautiful to behold. I am sure I will receive many compliments about her. The subject matter of Parthenope is also very unique, not something you come across every day. Only in Italia!
I am happy I came across your website but I wish we had seen your shop in Sorrento when we visited in July. Tried to see all that we could of Bella Sorrento!
Thank you again for your swift & courteous service & your concern for our satisfaction.

I received my cufflinks today and they are even more beautifull than the first pair I' ve bought.
If there is a contest for the best internet retailer I certainly will recommend you. Superb service.
thank you again.
Ronald van M.
I received my absolutely beautiful cameo today! I really love it and put it on my neck the minute I opened the box. It is really beautiful. Thank you so much. It was a pleasure dealing with you and thank you again for the special price. I look forward to visiting you in person, hopefully in June 2014. I starting planning already! We loved our previous trip to Italia
Your parcel has just arrived containing my coral pendant, it`s really beautiful! Thank you so much for all the trouble you have gone to. It`s ashame as the photos never do your pieces justice ( even though they look gorgeous on your website).
Many, many thanks again,
Best wishes to you,
My wife Jane has now received her birthday present, she is very very happy with it.
She is very proud that she is the only person in the world with such a Jaguar Cameo.
Thank you very much for doing this for me.
I hope to send you photos of Jane and the Cameo and perhaps her other Jaguar, which she drives too too fast.
All the best and again thank you so much.
Best Regards Franko.
Dear Chistian, I received my beautiful pendant today! Thank you sooo much. I look forward to doing business with you again. The shipment was very quick I was very surprised and pleased.
Dear Gentile Signor Christian
William and I would like to thank you for your kindness and generosity. The cameo is truly a lovely treasure. It is very beautiful. You are a great Master craftsman and a very kind person. We thank you from our hearts and look forward to seeing you soon! Grazie Mille! God Bless You!
Joan Marie and William
Thank you Christian,the earrings are lovely. I am thrilled and will call and see you again. Vivien
The cameo is absolutely beautiful! I am thrilled. The artisan is to be commended to the highest for his special talent as an artist!
I received it today and have worn it all day!. I have had many complements on it. Please tell the artist what a fabulous job he did.
Thank you Christian for your willingness to work with me on this special custom piece! You, the arts and your family are to be commended to the highest!
The work, the setting is all top quality! The BEST! Your friend forever!
il mio cammeo è arrivato proprio ora ed è molto bello! La ringrazio davvero per la disponibilità e gentilezza dimostrata, il servizio è ottimo e i gioielli splendidi parlerò molto bene di voi agli amici!!
the ring arrived today and fits.
Thank you very much!
l'anello è arrivato oggi e si adatta

Just wanted to let you know that it`s my husband`s birthday today and he absolutely loves his Marte cufflinks I bought from you. He`s absolutely thrilled with them and is wearing them today. A huge, huge thank you once again!
I apologize for the late response. Yes sir, I am in the American Army currently serving in Kuwait. The cameo is for someone very special to me who is also here.
I received the cameo about two days ago. It is exquisite, beautiful and surpasses all my expectations. Please accept my deepest praise to you and your craftsman. I will always recommend and inform people about you and Bimonte Sorrento.
I am going to place an order for my mother today or tomorrow. Once again thank you for your superb customer care and all your time and effort.
best regards from your loyal customer,
My husband, Ryan, and I cannot thank you enough for stepping out into the street to catch our tour group's attention last Friday! We are beyond thrilled that we chose to go back to Bimonte for the beautiful flower cameo ring and pendant. I love them more now than I did last week now that I am wearing them. These are such wonderful pieces of jewelry, and we could not be happier that we decided to purchase them. They will remain in our family for generations! You were great as well - your customer service was fabulous. Not at all pushy or salesman-like, but completely respectful and helpful. We hope to keep in touch!
Christian, I received my cameo ring this morning and I must say that this is probably the most BEAUTIFUL cameo I have ever seen in such a gorgeous setting! The Blessed Mother is spectacular! I never thought I would be able to replace the one that I had lost. My special gift, from my husband, for my 40th wedding anniversary, will be a treasure of my lifetime. Thank you for your kindness.
Fondly, Marilyn S.
I love love love my ring! I received it in the mail today. I can't believe it came so soon! I am so excited to wear it everyday especially with my beautiful cameo necklace.. its about the only jewelry i wear anymore! Thank you so much for taking my order and making me a beautiful piece of jewelry that will always remind me of my wonderful vacation to Italy. Once again thank the artist as well!
Best wishes! Hope I will be ordering more cameos in the near future!
I am now holding in my hand something truly remarkable and I am speechless. I have spent the last half hour just turning this piece around and around and holding it up to the light. It is every thing I could dream of and more. The darkness of the shell, The crispness and detail of the carving, The lovely curves of the shell that enhances the 3d quality of the image. The raised skull is really dramatic. Now the silver work, I am so pleased I went for the extra work, for the silver jackdaw back is a work of exceptional art as well. I don't know how you make such intricate filigree work without it falling apart. All in all this pendant exceeds the amount I have paid. I think you and all those concerned with the making of this piece deserves my deepest and heart felt thanks. This, for me, is something special. Please pass my thanks on. Christian I am so pleased to have met you and become a friend because I really love what you and your family do.
Ciao ciao Peter
This morning I received the cufflinks I had ordered.
They are beautifull.
It was a pleasure to do business with you and my order was perfectly handled.
Within 4 days from italy to the netherlands. Well done.
I wish that all internet retailers work as good as you do did. Perfect
I have received my cameo and it is fabulous!!
I love the setting and it fits perfectly. So comfortable.
I am really pleased. Thank you very, very much.
Best regards to you and Mr. Bimonte senior.
I have received the two cameos today and i am very pleased with them both of them ,thank you very much for your prompt service and i look forward to doing business with you again.
Another happy customer - Cindy M. (Pasadena, Maryland) - "It's the perfect birthday present and more beautiful than I ever expected! Thank you!"
My friend, Christian,
I have just returned to the USA a couple of days ago from my cruise. My sister-in-law and I agree that the best stop on our cruise was in Sorrento, and the best part of that was coming to your workshop. I love the 2 cameos I bought, and everyone I show them to are impressed as well.
I know it will probably be years before I get to come back to Italy, but I would love to visit Sorrento again. And I will be sure to let everyone know where I bought my cameos - maybe they will buy from your web site.
Success at long last!
Payment via Visa has been acknowledged as successful under order code L9B......
I know my wife will be delighted with the purchase as her birthday present.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter and generous gesture of of suggesting the cameo & chain could be posted prior to your receiving payment.
Despite the problems it was a pleasure to do business with you.
We paid a memorable visit to your shop in Sorrento last October but unfortunately I had left my credit card on that occasion at the hotel-my wife was not well pleased & regularly reminded me that purchases needed to be made!
Thank you again for all of your help.
My wife received them yesterday and she was thrilled. Your work is superb and you service is second to none! You are without a doubt the best company to deal with. You will definitely be hearing from us again in order to buy more from you. Once again, many, many thanks
To let you know my ring arrived yesterday, what a fantastic service!
The ring is just what I was looking for, I love the fact that the pieces are all hand made with genuine stones, it makes them so unique and special. My two Daughters will be very lucky when they grow up, but it seems that Daniel is the one who loves jewellery at the moment!
Mum brought me my first cameo ring from you made of the Rosaline shell, that I showed you, I found the card it was purchased in 2004. I am so pleased that I have had the opportunity to visit your shop this year, what a welcoming atmosphere you have created.
Now I know how easy and secure it is to order via your website, I will be looking to add to my collection in the near future.
Thanks again for the wonderful jewellery; it makes me feel very special!
Yes the courier rang up on Monday and I met him in the village as he could not find our house. My wife is delighted with the earrings. Thank you for being so attentive.
I received it! Molto bella!! It's even more beautiful than the photograph! My wife loves it so much! We will have to come back to sorrento some time and thank you in person. Excellent work! This will truly a treasure for our lives together. When people ask where we got this beautiful treasure (people WILL ask) we'll tell them about you. Best wishes.
Dear Christian, Thankyou for your excellent service on resizing Caitlin's cameo ring. We received it on Thursday
evening from the hotel receptionist as promised and it fits perfectly, grazie mille Paula B.
Signor Bimonte / Chrstian,
The coral necklace has arrived and my wife is absolutely delighted with the repair so she sends you ''Mille Grazie'' for your help.
With kind regards,
Adam R. dos S.
Thankyou for your patience ref the silver bracelet we purchased last week, you were so right once we arrived back in The Forest of Dean my wrist went back to normal.
The bracelet has already been much admired, by my family and friends .
You are very talented , and your kindness to us made our visits to your shop very special.
Gill and Dave B.
I picked up the ring last night, and I've attached two photos for you. As you can see I love the ring! Thank you again! Ciao Shelley
My beautiful ring arrived today - it is perfect and I love it!
Thank you so very much for all you did to make this such a wonderful experience.
I received the ring and sent you a nice email...
the email did not go through!
I love the ring! It is spectacular and you are a true gentleman, artist and craftsman..
Thank you for taking special care in the carving and beautiful workmanship...
Also, the packing box was spectacular, thanks so much!
I will certainly purchase more if possible in the future and will try to visit next time I am in the amalfi
Thanks and with gratitude, grazie,
Christian, I couldn't believe that my door bell was ringing today and my birthday ring had arrived! It was so well packaged and in a lovely presentation box. I can't thank you enough for your thoughtful birthday card! The size is perfect and I adore the ring; it is so different than anything I have seen. Thank you for your special, personalized service from Sorrento, Italy to Montclair, NewJersey,USA! I would love to visit your store during my next trip to Italy. Thank you, once again, for such a beautifully crafted piece.
I have been meaning to reply for a few days but have had trouble accessing my email.
I wanted to write to you to tell you firstly how impressed I was at the service you provided me with. I could not believe how quickly the ring turned up at my home after making my payment.
The ring is absolutely beautiful, to be honest the photographs on the web site certainly did not do it justice. It is an amazing piece of art and is more than I hoped it would be. It fits perfectly and I will treasure it for years to come. My Father would have been very proud to know that you had made me something in his honour, that reminds me so much of him, as Italy was his favourite place in the world, especially Sorrento. Words cannot express how much I appreciate what you have done for me.
I hope you will use this email to let other customers know what a great service you supply and how beautiful your cameos really are.
Thank you so much, I hope one day to return to Sorrento on Holiday and come to see you in the shop.
Buonasera Mr. Christian , Thank you for your email. We have received the beautiful cameo. I bought 3 when we visited your shop 4 years ago. Thank you for sending the cameo. Thanks again, Grazie, Jeanann S.
I just wanted to thank you very much for making my pendant for me. After losing my original to a burglar I was thrilled to have it replaced. It was so near to the original.
I love the earrings and ring too. The quality of the cameos is so much better than any I have seen in England.
I never thought for a moment that I would be fortunate enough to have a replacement.
Your kindness really made my holiday. Sorrento is a wonderful place and so is the service and quality you have provided.
When we return to Sorrento in the future, I shall be visiting you again - maybe for a bracelet next time.
I recommend you 100% to anyone wanting a cameo.
Thank you again for all your kindness.
With my very best wishes.
We have now received the Cameo Ring ( Order K46DYPE5) and my wife loves it. I would like to thank you for your excellent service in answering all our questions and prompt delivery of the ring, once ordered. We hope to visit your shop on a future holiday to Sorrento.
This is to let you know that today I received the cameo of Medusa - La Gorgone. I am very pleased with it and it is already on display in my cabinet. Grazie!
Dear Mr. Bimmonte.
I have received the Cameo with the order kode K2U8QSGQ.
It is very lovely. I like it very much. Its a real masterpiece.
I got it very quickly. Thank you very much for it.
Best vishes and good luck.

Hi Christian -
We got it!!! and it is fantastic!! Jen has worn it every day since it arrived!!
We will definitely send everyone we know traveling to Italy down your way!!
Yes! It came already this morning. I was very surprised how quickly it got here, and it’s just as beautiful as I remembered it. Thank you very much!
Buon Giorno Signore Christian:
I received the cameo necklace and earrings yesterday. They are more beautiful than pictured. I just love them. Thank you so much for helping me find a replacement for my lost cameo. I truly hope to be back in Sorrento and I will be sure to visit.
Buongiorno to you,
We received it yesterday afternoon and it is beautiful.
It was an exciting moment watching Herb open up the well wrapped package.
Thank you for following up.
I had purchased a necklace with a cameo from Bimonte over 3 years ago. Whenever it is worn I receive nothing but compliments over the beauty of the jewelry. The cameo looks as gorgious today as when originially bought. I will be returning this year to Sorrento and have all intentions of making another purchase.
The pendant arrived today. UPS had been trying to deliver to 144 instead of 114 as you had correctly put on the package.
The craftsmanship on the pendant is outstanding, and my wife is thrilled with it.
Thank you for all your help, this hasn't been an easy delivery for you because of UPS, but your help and attention to detail has won through. I am sure we shall be buying from you again in the coming years.
God bless you all
Thank you very much for the ring, i received it on the 1st of may. I am
very pleased with it, the detail is lovely and my husband will be pleased
when he see's it.
We have just received the cameo you sent for us and we are delighted with it, you have done yourselves, proud many thanks to you and your staff.
yours sincerely David and Pauline J.
ps next time we are in Sorrento we shall see if we can find another design for you to make for us.
I rec'd my cameo, it's beautiful! thank you, Merry Christmas
The cameo just arrived. Multi grazie. It is very beautiful and I am sure my wife will love and cherish it.
Again, thank you for your professionalism, speedy delivery. I will direct any of my friends or relatives to your store or website.
Hope to see you again when I am in Italy.

like to thank you for all you assistance and wish you a very merry and holy
Christmas. I am sure I will be buying other stuff from you soon again.
My Cameo came today! Wow is it beautiful!
Thanks so much for taking the time to make it.
It took me 30 min to unwrap it! Who shipped and packed it ????
Now I need to find a better chain for it.
Thanks again-- it was well worth the wait---
ps Im saving up for the pearl necklace!
Thank you Christian, I have just received the beautiful cameo pendant. Am extremely pleased with such an intricate work of art and this will hold happy memories of my holiday in Sorrento, as well as softening the blow of my 40th birthday!
Pleasantly surprised that although large in size, the cameo being light, is extremely wearable.
Once again grazie for your very speedy and attentive service.
I highly recommend Bimonte.
The cuff-links arrived safely yesterday, they are lovely and he will really enjoy wearing them.
Thank-you for all your help, we will see you at the New Year.
I’ve just got back to work today and had the package waiting here for me!!!
That’s great! Thank you so much. I can’t wait to give everyone their gifts!
So thank you again and I wish you and all your family a lovely Christmas and hopefully will see you in the New Year!
Take care and until next time.
This finally made it through customs. It is beautiful. Thanks again. You do great work.
Yes, I did receive the earrings and I love them! They are so beautiful. Thank-you so much.
Thank you so much for the cameos. We received everything yesterday and they are all beautiful. We will be certain to pass along your information to anyone looking for wonderful cameos.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you in the future,
Thank you so much for your help and for the speedy send!
very nice indeed,
I did receive the cameos about a week ago in good condition. Thank you for sending them so promptly.
This cameo is beautiful.
We want to let you know how much we appreciate the gorgeous craftsmanship on our recent purchase, Ecce Homo. It is even more beautiful in person than it was on line! We have never seen any cameo that comes near its beauty. Christian was wonderful and helpful. We cannot believe how easy our international purchase was and how quickly it arrived at our door in Arizona, USA. Thank you all so much. We will certainly be back for more!
