Giulians News

We went on a road trip! Last month, Gary, Trina, Joel and I took a day off work, and drove down to Canberra, to see Cartier’s exhibition of historical jewels on display at the National Gallery of Australia.  Established in 1847 in Paris, by Louis-François Cartier, Cartier is today an internationally recognised jewellery and watch manufacturer. A beautiful day for a drive. Famous for their garland style designs from the early 1900’s, it is of little wonder

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

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!

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

When we aren’t busy making beautiful pieces for clients, we are creating new pieces for our boutique.  Recently inspired by a lovely pink diamond and geometric shapes, Gary designed this 18ct white gold pendant.  I hope you enjoy this gallery of images, capturing the evolution of this one-off piece.   Gary’s bench sketch providing details for Joel to work from.

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

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. The source of inspiration – A 9.39ct opal, from Lightning Ridge, NSW. Early thoughts put on paper. Starting the 1:1 scaled drawing
