 Merilin Monroe and Barack Obama portraits made of jewels

The British mosaic artists and jewel cutters spend weeks carefully recreating photos using a selection of diamonds and precious gemstones.

Each 0.25 carat diamond and stone has a round brilliant cut finish and is hand-set into silver, gold or platinum of the customer's choice.

Portraits start from around 20cm x 20cm and contain at least 2600 stones such as sapphires, amethysts and peridots.

The biggest image Gemstone Creative has made so far measures around 60cm x 60cm and contains an extraordinary 22 500 stones.

Prices start at £25 000 for a small portrait made of semi-precious stones but company co-founder Mark Hirschel says it is easy to break the £1 million.

Less wealthy customers can buy a portrait made from Swarovski Crystals for a more modest £2700.
