CINTEMANI

CINTEMANI

This symbol is composed of three circles along with two flowing lines. Being one of the most striking motifs in Ottoman Art, Cintemani was a symbol of power and strength, the three dots being compared to the leopard s spots and the curving lines to a tiger ‘S’ markings.

Tribute to ancient cultures, for Gilan this motive is also an ode to modernity and femininity. The motif is stylized and reinterpreted by Gilan using its entire know-how and different techniques such as Heritage setting or contemporary design to highlight the magic of Cintemani.

Featuring an S shape curve, the Cintemani design also represents the grace of the female body. It is everlasting, but equally dynamic and true - just as the time we live in.
