A protégé of Alesaandro Castellani, Carlo Giuliano travelled from Italy to London and established a London store for Castellani, he established his own atelier in Britain.
Giuliano brought his own style to jewellery of the late 19th Century. Experimentation with enamel gained Giulano a global reputation for delicacy of his work. The use of black and white enamels in combination was a trademark style.
Giuliano, like Castellani, experimented with ancient styles and designs from antiquity. Eventually, however, Giuliano eventually focused on inspirations from the Renaissance, producing intricate jewels that are often equally beautiful on the front and the back. The next generation, Carlo’s sons, Carlo and Arthur, continued until 1914, with the tradition of designing the now highly desired jewels inspired by antiquity and the Renaissance.
