The Magic and Mystery of Topkapi Treasury Earrings
Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul and the fabulous Topkapi Palace… The House of Gilan pays homage to the birthplace of pleasure, beauty and luxury with this pearl and rose-cut sapphire Topkapi Treasury Earrings. Each Gilan creation tells a narrative of whimsy and adventure dating back to 15th century Istanbul incorporating motifs and techniques derived from the circle of craftsmen working for the Palace.
The House was granted the opportunity to sponsor the renovation of four rooms of the world-famous Topkapi Palace Treasury Hall in Istanbul. This was the best way not only to express Gilan’s respect for the 600-year tradition of Turkish jewelry-making mastery but also to ensure that this valuable heritage was preserved for future generations. The rooms of the Topkapi Treasury, the third-largest treasury in the world, were, thanks to Gilan, renovated to their former glory. Topkapi Treasury creations reflect the splendour of the Palace.
