Australian Wine List of the Year 2018

Visiting Sydney soon?  You may have already researched where to eat during your stay, but sometimes a brilliant wine list can help make the decision easier! The Annual Wine List of the Year Awards, held last month, is the Oscars for restaurant owners and sommelier’s wine lists as they learn how their carefully constructed list stack up.  2018 was the 25th year of this award. The most important part of the night is the all important […]


Meet the Brewer Night #1

Giulians inaugural Meet the Brewer and Putt for Cash evening. Everyone’s heard of food and wine pairings  – even food and beer pairings, but beer and fine jewellery may not seem such an obvious match! Most of you know what we do, and how well we do it, so Gary’s idea for this bi-monthly event is simply to create a fun experience – an introduction to a local Sydney brewer, while adding a competitive edge with […]


Well, Someone has to do the Dirty Work!

Ever wondered what Gary gets up to on his days off?  Golf, gardening and… this! Last year Gary was tasked with making a commemorative plaque for a friend’s retirement.  Using some specimen grade ‘boulders’, Gary got on the power tools in his front yard.  His youngest son Liam, who is a keen photographer, captured some fantastic photos during the process. We hope you enjoy this gallery of images showing the transformation of a lump of […]

50 Shades of Pink

What colour is a sapphire? It is a simple enough question.  The mere mention of the word sapphire brings to mind the colours royal or cornflower blue – like Princess Diana’s famous sapphire ring, now worn by Kate Middleton – The Duchess of Cambridge.  What many people don’t realise is that sapphires come in almost every colour imaginable – blue, green, yellow, purple and pink. Gary recently received a bespoke order from a client for […]

The participating chefs – Colin Fassnidge (4Fourteen), Josh Niland (Saint Peter), Alessadro Pavoni (Ormeggio), Peter Gilmore […]


Getting Creative

Sometimes, an opal just speaks to you. This intense natural Australian opal, from Lightning Ridge in NSW, did exactly that.  Within weeks of its arrival, Gary had formed an idea, which then progressed into a finalised design, featuring flowers, butterflies and 24ct gold beadwork.  Below is a gallery of images capturing this design evolution. This design is now complete – and the manufacturing process can begin. Watch this space for further updates! If you are interested […]

Rather than choosing a piece that is already made, some of our clients choose to get a piece custom made during their stay in Sydney.  It starts with the gemstone – in this case a lovely boulder opal from Quilpie in Queensland.  Once the opal is selected, a sketch is created for the jeweller to work from, and manufacturing begins!  Here are some step by step photos of this creative manufacturing process.
