It’s a very subtle piece – much less flashy than some I’ve shown you – but I think that’s part of its beauty. It doesn’t need to yell for attention. It just waits for the right eye to look closely and realize how exception it is and then it reveals its full beauty.
This particular piece is the work of Carlo Giuliano himself, and was made between 1874 and 1895. It is of pierced scrollwork design, alternating between green paste stones and elaborately designed links of monochromatic enamel and cabochon rubies.
There’s a close up of the detail for you. Isn’t it wonderful? So restrained and yet complex.
