An Antique Moonstone, Enamel & Diamond Brooch by Carlo Giuliano
Carlo Giuliano moved with his wife and his eldest son, Carlo Joseph, to London from his native Italy in 1860. In the same year he founded his own workshop at 13 Frith Street. From this workshop in the heart of Soho, Giuliano produced well crafted jewellery in the popular revivalist style. Although not much is known of Giuliano before his arrival in London, it is likely due to the similarity in style that he trained under, or worked for the Roman jeweller, Castellani. Giuliano considered himself an Artist jeweller and not merely a craftsman. Perhaps this attention to aesthetic detail and emphasis on design over materials, is why his work fitted comfortably within artistic circles.
