We have one of the world’s largest collections of Australian Pearls and Australian Opals.
"I've only been to Australia once. We were filming an episode of Modern Family in Sydney and staying in the four seasons hotel. On one of my days off I wandered in to a lovely opal store in the hotel run by Gary Coffey and his wife. I didn't know anything about opals so they gave me a crash course. I never felt any pressure to buy and was impressed by their friendly manner. I bought some for my wife and two daughters. A nice experience. ”
"At the end of March I was lucky enough to be on holiday in Sydney and 'popped' in to browse your pearls and opals. I was originally met by Gary and was totally blown away by his knowledge and charisma and after settling on a pearl (which was slightly larger than I was originally looking for!) it was set it for me and after a couple of hours I was the proud owner of a South Sea pearl. I'm now back in sunny but chilly England and happy to report that I think my pearl looks as beautiful on a pale English décolleté swathed in a woolly jumper as it did on a sun-kissed warm one! ”
"I like this Company. After winning Best Musical for Spamalot on Broadway in 2005, and perhaps fueled by too much champagne celebrating, I dropped the ring on a hotel tile floor and it broke. I was impressed that Giulians were happy to replace the Opal and the ring is as good as new. I wear it to this day but never when I'm drinking champagne. ”
"I've been meaning to send you a note to say thank you for producing such a beautiful ring. It was produced exactly like how I described it and the craftsmanship is gorgeous. ”
"Thank you very much for all your help with designing my dream engagement ring! It's perfect...As was the entire experience of buying from you! We have told all our friends and family about the great experience we had with you and highly recommend you ”
"Giulians is synonymous with sophisticated style and mesmerizing quality gems. For years, I have enjoyed custom designing pieces of jewelery with Giulians' Gary Coffey. His years of expertise and his eye for selecting and pairing stones for one's own personal collection has always kept me coming back for more ”
