Turkey holds the leading position amongst the jewellery exporting countries. The country has a large manufacturing base and provides for cheap labour along with an increasing number of designers have helped Turkey becoming an important jewellery making centre. Besides, the country’s important geographical location helps bridging East and West, Asia and Europe, which makes it an important distribution and re-export centre.

Turkey’s jewellery industry received a huge boost with government decisions taken in the early 1980s to liberalize the gold trade and foreign exchange, according to the Turkish Jewelers Association (TAJ). The TAJ promotes the export of Turkish jewellery, advances the interests of the Turkish jewellery sector internationally, and supports the activities of the Turkish jewellery export sector.

Well-known Jewellery Brands

The family story and its love affair with luxury begins in the town of Gilan, where four generations ago, the great- great- great grandmother of the founders had designed and sewn tailor-made dresses for the Ottoman pashas. It picks up again, in 1980, where the brothers Muharrem and Ferhan Gilan opened the first 1.5 sq mtrs jewellery store. Their hereditary passion for design and luxury led them to move to Istanbul and to set the basis of Gilan which is a world known jewellery house among socialites and the affluent today.

Inspired by the history of Turkey, fine jewellery brand Urart artfully fuses ancient styles with modern motifs and technology. From the Ottoman, Byzantine and Seljuk cultures to the ancient Sumerians and Phrygians, Urart’s collections often focus on one specific period, exploring the themes and motifs of the past through decidedly modern jewellery.
