Famed for exquisite enamelled jewellery in the Renaissance tradition, Carlo Giuliano jewellery remains some of the most coveted in the auction industry. Carlo Giuliano moved to London from Italy around 1860. Together with his sons Carlo and Arthur, he established a jewellery business, selling his Revivalist pieces through retailers such as Hunt & Roskell and C.F. Hancock.
In 1874 Giuliano was able to open his own retail premesis, located at 115 Piccadilly. Giuliano's work attracted a loyal clientele, from Royalty, to Pre-Raphaelite artists, with some of his pieces appearing in the paintings of Sir Edward Poynter. Carlo Giuliano passed away in 1895, and he left the business jointly to Carlo and Arthur.
The brothers renamed the business Carlo & Arthur Giuliano, with the company marks changing from the CG within an oval to 'C.G A.G' within a curved quatrefoil surround. They continued to make and sell jewellery in the same style as their father, with Arthur the creative partner in the business. In 1912 they moved premesis to Knightsbridge. Tragically, only two years later Arthur committed suicide and the business subsequently closed, and with it the end of an era of Revivalist jewels that were truly unmatched in their craftsmanship and design.
