This suite of fine antique enamel jewelry was made by world renowned jeweler, Carlo Giuliano in London (1835-1895). He was a favored jeweler to queen Victoria. To this day his unique enamel work remains unmatched.
An incredible set of micro mosaic work made by the Petochi brothers, who began their trade in Rome in 1884. This set is in mint condition. There are no missing stones, and the surface of the stones have experienced no wear making the colors bright and bold.
A piece of beautiful French Art Nouveau made by jeweler, Leo Garrod. Each link hand made in 18 karat yellow gold and embellished with blue and white enamel, diamonds, and blue sapphires.
This stunning high relief, hard stone cameo was made by German jeweler, W. Lauermein in Mainz. The delicate frame of the pin has lovely flower motif metal work with tiny seed pearls. Circa 1890.
Wrapped in blue guilloche enamel, this antique cigar case has Russian hallmarks from the late 1800s. The end of the case is decorated with rose cut diamonds and a cabochon ruby.
