THE HOUSE OF GİLAN

A PASSIONATE, FAMILY OWNED JEWELLERY HOUSE OF THE 21st CENTURY

Gilan’s story and the passion the Gilan family has for luxury has its roots way back in the 18th century, in a village in Kosovo, where their grandmother had sewn tailor-made dresses for the Ottoman Pashas.

True to their heritage, brothers Muharrem and Ferhan began their quest for luxury in 1980, albeit in a jewellery store of only 1,5 sqm. In a few years, their hereditary passion for design and luxury led them to move Istanbul where Gilan flourished as a world-renowned luxury jewellery house designing exeptional pieces for the queens of the 21st century.

Muharrem and Ferhan Geylan established Gilan, the creator of high jewellery, by blending their hereditary design vision with the stylised art that they respresent worldwide and with the splendor of Istanbul – the queen of the cities. Creating jewellery that will be preserved for future generations is the major passion of two brothers who are involved in each and every phase of giving shape to jewellery, starting from the special cut of exceptionally high quality gemstones, till they evolve into dramatically beautiful designs. By transferring the mysterious details of the history and elegant life style of Istanbul to the design, Gilan is known around the world as the master jeweller which enlightens the West with the flare of the East.
