Amazing Antique Jewelry – Gilt has the best antique pieces I've seen around. I stopped by the other day just to look around, but as always looking around turned into much more than that, anyway the staff was amazing. They were extremely attentive and very helpful when it came to helping me decide on a ring. One of the ladies was even nice enough to take time and measure my index finger to make sure I'd be getting a comfortably fitted ring. The staff was amazing beyond belief and the selection for antique jewelry is just to die for. Absolutely fabulous!!

A great place to find a wedding ring – My wife and I have been to Gilt about a half dozen times in the past year (we were shopping for a wedding ring) and each time we were warmly received. During our first visit, we let the salesperson know that we were in the market for a wedding ring. She was eager to help and quick to offer neat little details about each of the rings we were interested in. It took us a few visits to find a ring (after our 2nd visit, we noticed a vast change in the selection, so we thought that it might be a good idea to show up often). The salespeople at Gilt began to recognize us as regular customers but they never showed any sign of frustration with our relentless browsing. After 4 or 5 visits we found the one ring that my wife couldn't live without, a gold 1940's sapphire and diamond engagement ring (she uses it as her wedding band).

We later went back to buy a gift for the woman who was performing our wedding ceremony. Since we weren?t sure what to buy, the salesperson began to ask questions about our officiant and eventually pointed us in the direction of a Victorian brooch. Needless to say, she loved it!

We will definitely be going back.

Best place for engagement rings! – While my fiance and I were searching for the perfect engagement ring a friend recommended we stop by Gilt. One Saturday we decided to go in and check it out- and I am so happy we did! I wanted something non-traditional and guilt free, and gilt had exactly what I was looking for. I found my perfect ring for the perfect price. The sales girl was very helpful and worked with my fiance on a payment plan. In a matter of weeks the ring was on my finger, and we even went back and found the perfect wedding band to compliment it. I'm so glad I took the time to stop in and check it out- because now I'm hooked!

Beautful selection, wonderful staff – My fiance and visited Guilt during our search for our wedding bands. I had heard such positive reviews here and I love vintage jewelry so we decided to visit. The staff was immediately accommodating and showed us their selection of gorgeous engagement & wedding rings. You could tell they really are selective, nearly everything in the case was beautiful. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable, they took our time with us and we never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. We purchased a completely unique and gorgeous 1940's ruby and diamond wedding ring and a couple of weeks later, I went back to purchase my fiance's ring. I was surprised at how reasonable their prices are, you can certainly find something beautiful weather you are on a tight budget or an extravagant one. We love our rings and will definitely be going back!

My dream engagement ring from a lovely local gem! – I've been a fan of Gilt for nearly 10 years...even back in high school. Everyone there has always been so welcoming and down to earth, over the years they have become my favorite place for unique treasures.

I was searching for a engagement ring and I knew Gilt would be the perfect place. It just had to be vintage. Not only because they are unique, beautifully handmade, and share a bit of history... also because it is the "green" way to go...conflict free hand cut diamonds and recycled too.

After months of searching alas it arrived at Gilt! Unfortunately I was without my partner...drat! The girls wrote the ring's specifics down for me and kindly warned me that rings go fast. I took the card home to my now fiance and he said we'd go back the next afternoon. We did. MY ring was gone! I eventually got over it. I continued to visit knowing that something equally amazing would come through.

Three months later I was proposed to. Guess what was inside the little red heart-shaped box? MY ring! The original one that I saw....Edwardian, platinum filigree, and Old European cut diamond! My tricky guy called them immediately and secretively purchased the ring! The whole experience has been fabulous and the surprise was absolutely perfect!

I loved Gilt before and now I love them even more.

It's "gilt" free shopping in every imaginable way. – The owner Paula and the girls Jesse and Carley are incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and are never pushy. They have a large selection but will help you find the piece that's perfect for you, with a quality unrivaled in Portland. Though I do not have a large collection of jewelry, I do take pride in the pieces I have, all of which have been purchased from Gilt. Being a college student I appreciate the variety in their collection which always includes something in my budget. I give all of my closest friends gifts from Gilt and they never fail to impress. Not only do I recommend Gilt for gifts and personal pleasure, but I wouldn't be surprised if you became a lifelong fan as I have.

Not only do they have a beautiful selection of estate pieces, their support of local artists does not go unnoticed, the upstairs features many independent artists.

Make sure to strike up a conversation with the girls in the shop, they really are the one in a million types.

Ripped Off – I bought some vintage hair clips at Gilt and was so thrilled, although they were about thirty dollars a pair! My initial happiness was ruined when I bought several lots of the same EXACT vintage hair clips in sets of 10 for about 15.00 total on ebay. I feel completely ripped off. I do expect a mark up at stores in NW, but thirty dollars for set of clips that can be bought for literally a fraction of the price online feels wrong. These are cute clips, however, they are plastic and do not warrant the high price.

We were unaware of the coincidence at hand here and the barrettes have been pulled from stock. We hope that you will return for a refund. Your happiness is very important to us and you can always come to us first if you have any problems.

If you like unusual jewelry, go here. – Cute selection, and I bought a ring at half its appraised price. They also gave me a free resizing, which not everyone will do.

Best antique jewelry shop in theWest – It seems someone has written an unfavorable review about my favorite shop. They must have gone to another Gilt than the one I know and love. I have been shopping with these girls since the late nineties. I would not shop anywhere else. I can trust them and their diamonds. What I really love is that they can tell me when the diamond is from and all sorts of other neat things about the jewelry. They turned me onto Mings jewelry which is now a major part of my collection. Dont listen to the sour grapes...go there and experience the store for yourself...Nobody does it like the women of Gilt! I say Bah Humbug to the other reviewer.....
