At the time this pendant was made Giuliano had a shop and workshop at 115 Piccadilly. It was a treasure chest of wonderful jewels showcasing the exceptional craftsmanship for which Giuliano pieces were renowned. His beautifully detailed enamel work was unparalleled and he often used unusual combinations of gems such as lapis lazuli, zircons, fire opals and pearls, favouring cabochons as readily as faceted gems. Brooches, pendants, fringe necklaces, earrings, hair ornaments and tiaras all received the Giuliano touch and combined contemporary wearability with the Renaissance aesthetic that he found so inspiring.
