FrontRunners: Road to Riches

  • Gilan gold-and-diamond earrings
<< Back to Robb Report, May 2013

    Unusual combinations of materials and bright colors distinguish the jewelry in Gilan’s Journey to Dreams collection (www.gilan.com). The designs are meant to evoke the exoticism that was introduced to the Western world via the Silk Road, the ancient network of trade routes that linked Europe and the Middle East with China. Priced from $5,000 to $750,000, the voluptuous, finely detailed pieces from the Turkish jeweler are made from richly colored enamel, gemstones, and gold. The $39,700 gold-and-diamond earrings shown here are set with more than 25 carats of deep-red rubellite stones.
