We have been to the Stone Castle Cameo Factory several times. We always like to stop in and see what new cameo designs they have. We absolutely love this place. Don't miss an opportunity to see these "one-of-a-kind" Italian carved cameos. They are carved from conk shells and they are absolutely beautiful. We always make a point to stop here... More

These are a true Cameos that are carved in a conk shell. The only other place in the world where cameos are carved is in Italy. These magnificent works of art are being carved at this location and you can watch them work. They have a VIP room which you can tour if you ask. The pricing on these works... More

My wife had been wanting to stop at Stone Castle ever since I booked the cruise back in January - it was everything she had hoped. The craftsmanship was excellent and the prices on the cameos were excellent. My wife was able to complete all of her Christmas shopping AND get a beautiful cameo necklace for herself. I even enjoyed... More

It's mind blowing art, best to take cash along the away especially to the cameo store. Credit card may not work if not confirmed by your bank before leaving.. Prices are $20 +, without silver and with Sterling silver $40+. Amazing art. It's very difficult knowing that on the island it's a high season and a low one.. Which carvers... More

World class gifts, exceptional workmanship, award winning quality -- even designed a piece for MOMA! Make sure to request a tour of the private collection! Stunning! If you are looking for the most unique gift for someone; this is the place! You will treasure these for ever; their value will only increase!

We purchased a couple of items here during a cruise ship tour. Actually, I chose the tour because of this stop and was not disappointed.

When visiting Roatan, the last thing I expected was a cameo carving factory. Apparently Italian cameo carvers settled here many years ago and these are their descendants. The cameos themselves are quite unique, in that they depict different sea creatures in addition to the beautiful lady cameos. They are the darker sardonyx type cameos, which are set in silver. The...

This was not a listed stop on our scheduled tour but our guide asked everyone if we were up for one more stop and so glad she did. Not only is the work beautiful and interesting to look at but if you are an artist or even have an interest in art the craftmanship is amazing. I only wish we... More

To the locals this is known as the rock house. It is a very small place as are most of the places in Honduras. They have some beautiful pieces, but no one was overly helpful.

We went on a cruise tour at the end of the season so did not have to contend with crowds. I wish the tour organizers had provided us more time to watch the artisan make a cameo and shop for an original piece of art. 30 minutes was not adequate. The cameo staff start off with an explanation of the... More
