Employees were friendly and helped us pick out just the right ring. Surprisingly affordable, they even sized the ring and shipped it to KS!

My fiance and I were really interested in an artisan wedding ring for him and after much looking, found a beautiful piece at Gilt. We were bummed to hear the artist only works in silver, which is not a durable metal. My fiance asked a few questions about options for contacting the artist or taking a photo of the ring to another jeweler in town who said they could replicate the piece in another metal, etc. We were shocked to be treated so disrespectfully - the salesperson (maybe manager?) was defensive and loud and seemed incapable of gracefully educating us on the store's policy or protocol without broadcasting her voice throughout the store and making us feel talked down to and put off. She was incredibly unhelpful and lost a sale, as needless to say, I took the two rings I was seriously considering off my finger and we left the store very clear we would not purchase our wedding rings there.

Pros: beautiful selection

I was first exposed to Gilt by a friend who knew the owner and worked there part time. I thought the pieces were beautiful and amazing and talked about the shop to my then-boyfriend (now husband!). He surprised me by going in to the shop and talking to the owner and my friend. They both had been there when I was admiring rings so they were able to give him hints/tips about what I had liked. He picked out the most beautiful ring and I love it more every day. I get compliments about it all the time and I love telling people it is a piece of estate jewelry from the 30's. I really like having a ring that is not a cookie-cutter engagement and wedding band set.

Thank you, Gilt for helping my husband way back when... I plan on sending him your way soon... we just moved back to Oregon and just celebrated our 4th anniversary. :)

Pros: Beautiful unique jewelry and expert staff!

I purchased my wife a gift here and she loved it ... they helped me a lot.
We did have to get our ring repaired, but Gilt took care of it for us with no problem. We also had other jewelry items from family that needed repair so they sent us to their jeweler at , the girl there was great and real inexpensive. $60 to repair a ring... wow.

My fiance and I were really excited about finding jewelry for our engagement rings - and although we didn't find one for him... i found a perfect ring. I had walked in not wanting gold or diamonds - and left with a white gold ring with five small diamonds - but I love it! It's amazing.

Unfortunately, a week and a half after buying the ring, one of the diamonds fell out. When we brought it into a local jeweler to find out how much it would be to replace - they found all of the diamond settings to be severely worn, and also found a fissure in the gold that needed repair. We paid the same price to repair the ring as we did to buy it. I only wish the sales person at gilt had told us there might be repairs needed - we would've taken that into account in our purchase decision. I'm really happy I got a vintage ring, and I love it, but I just want other people that might also be new to jewelry shopping to know that repair may be a hidden cost in your purchase.

My wife is obsessed with antique/vintage jewelry and so we bought her a wedding ring from Gilt (last year, the ring is still looking great!). Our anniversary was a few weeks ago and I decided to head back to Gilt to see what I could find. With some help from the staff I ended up buying a pair of Victorian bracelets. Needless to say (but I will anyways) my wife loves them! Also needless to say (but again, I will anyways) I will be going back to Gilt whenever I need to buy a romantic-ish gift.
Thank you to the people who work at Gilt for being so friendly (and patient) with me!

Pros: excellent selection, even better staff

Cons: can't think of any...

There are not many bad reviews but even seeing some makes me sad. Gilt is wonderful! We need more small businesses like Gilt! That store is what makes Portland unique and beautiful. Every time I go in there the owner is always engaging and nice to talk to! They always offer to steam my ring and check it for wear.

I love Gilt! Hip hip, hooray!

Stopped in three times as I visited multiple states searching for the perfect antique engagement ring and other family gifts. First the positives: friendly, knowledgable and well-staffed; cozy shop atmosphere; good selection and pricing on low to mid-level items. Now the drawbacks: few parking opportunities (but who cares when you are looking for a special gift!?!); for high-end vintage look elsewhere (I recommend Margulis); didn't get the impression that they would come down in price; they rarely stock aesthetically risky items--in other words, they choose vintage items that are close enough to contemporary tastes that they should easily sell but this means that their collection is sometimes less interesting. Finally, I was fascinated by a religious piece, but I could tell the clerk was holding her nose a bit over my religious affiliation. This was odd and unfortunate. Otherwise the service was excellent.

Pros: Men's & Women's 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!!

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.

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!

Sorry i found the Guilt to be Guilty of Click and Trend, and very little room for Jewelry Art. If you don't Click with how they define Vintage and Artisan made...well let's just say, the objective is there way that leads to however they imterpret Jewelry to get the under valued $$$. I believe they survive, due to the lack of education to their customer base on what is real Jewelry Art. Yes likely you will find them up late viewing, EBAY junk. There best come on is the photos of models....

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!

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.

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.

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.

Cute selection, and I bought a ring at half its appraised price. They also gave me a free resizing, which not everyone will do.

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.....

I am a frequent visitor to this wonderful place after having become an eager collector of vintage jewelry mainly from the 1920's and 1930's. However, given the knowledge of the store owner , Paula, and her terrific sales women Jessy and Carly, I have become interested in pieces from many different time periods. Their knowledge is great and there is always a fun story to hear. What's really exciting is to think about the history of the pieces and who may have worn them 100 years or so ago. The knowledge that they share has become my key to reading of books on vintage jewelry and I enjoy knowing more about the beautiful pieces I have purchased. Their inventory ranges in price so that everyone can have the opportunity to own some fantastically made jewelry. The quality of most of the adornments sold at Gilt is hard to find in most other "vintage" shops. I would recommend this place to anyone with an adventurous nature who has no fear of wearing something that you wouldn't find anywhere else. There is no one else like this in town!

My niece and her soon-to-be fiance bought a lovely "authentic" Georgian ring at Gilt. Of the six small diamonds, two turned out to be sapphires and a third was glass.

It was more than they could afford but they accepted the store's guarantee only to find, when it was appraised at another jeweler, the flaws. When faced with the flaws, the owner acknowledged them, blamed the wrong description on "temporary holiday help," and very reluctantly refunded the money... the only reason they got two stars instead of one star and an accusation of...

If I were one of the overjoyed people praising the place on this site, I'd take my ring to another appraiser. I would certainly never buy anything without an outside appraisal of my own.

What I can I say that hasn't already been said. My boyfriend and I hadn't actually done a lot of looking for engagement rings, but the looking we had done was less then thrilling. We came to Gilt this past weekend because of all the amazing reviews and we were NOT disappointed. I fell in love with 2 rings. They were priced significantly different however Paula, the owner, kept exclaiming how perfect the less expensive one was on me, which I found pleasantly surprising. We left without making a purchase as we still had plans to do a little shopping around. I couldn't stop thinking about Gilt and those amazing rings all night. The service was personal and extremely friendly. THe selection was completely unique and utterly gorgeous. The prices were very reasonable, especially considering how truly special these pieces are. We went back the next day right at their opening time to get one of the rings. I can't wait until the day I get to wear it and for the day I get to return to Gilt to pick out my next piece!!!

We started our search for a replacement wedding ring at Gilt. When my husband saw the rings in other stores he looked and me and said, "I see what you did. You essentially took me to the Mercedes dealership first and now you've brought me to the Toyota dealership. Why would I want a Toyota after looking at the Mercedes?" We went back and bought the very first ring we set our eyes on. Thank you for being the luxury shopping experience!

Pros: Knowledgeable, friendly, understanding when you show up a lot to look at 'your' ring!

Cons: Not everyone is a vintage lover! That's ok - more for me!

When I first stepped foot in Gilt I wasn?t sure what I was looking for. I knew what my wife?s taste?s were but little else. After a warm welcome by the wonderful women that work there I briefly explained to them what I was looking for. They were extremely attentive and showed me a few pieces that they thought she would like, I finally settled on a beautiful pendent and earrings. They gift wrapped it for me and I went home. My wife was so happy she made me vow to never go any where else because ?obviously they knew what a woman of taste wants? lol she can be very dramatic some times. Any way I just want to say a big thank you to all the woman of gilt you have helped me make my wife happy and by proxy my life incredibly easier. To you I tip my hat.

Pros: When ever my wife unwraps a gilt box there is always a smile on her face.

Gilt owner Paula is amazing, knowledgeable and willing to tell you the history of a jewelry piece. She has invested her heart and soul in this store and it shows when her face lights up as you enter Gilt. Personal service is supreme, something you see to little of these days. I give Gilt and owner Paula, the Crown Jewels in ratings.

I was really getting overwhelmed looking for an engagement ring for my fiance. Apart from struggling with the ethics of buying new diamonds, the cost of engagement rings and the impersonal horrors of many jewelry stores; finding Gilt came as a major relief. I found an incredible ring with hallmark engraving that showed the ring was from 1797 and it was like nothing I've seen before or since. Everyone there was really helpful and worked to find a price and a payment plan that I could make. I'm now ready to buy my wedding ring and will be back soon!

Pros: incredible jewelry, styles from a bygone era

Cons: I can't afford to buy more of their things

.

I love Gilt; they have a great variety of antique jewelry available when you are sick of all the cookie cutter jewelry at more mainstream outlets. The variety isn?t just limited to the style but also the price. So even if you?re a pauper but want to maker her feel like a princess you can easily find that special something.

The staff is always friendly and patient for anyone who enters the store. In the times I have been there I never got a sense that the clerk was just agreeing with anything I said. I appreciate honesty and the employees of Gilt won?t steer you wrong if you are trying to pick out something nice. If they happen to be without that perfect item at the moment just come back in a week and there will be some new items. Also the staff is willing to take your info and give you a call if something comes in that you?re on the look out for.

The upstairs local section isn?t as nice as the main floor but if your looking for handmade jewelry and don?t feel like waiting around for the Saturday Market it may be the place for you.

I was searching for the perfect necklace to compliment my wedding dress, and I stopped by Gilt to see if they had anything appropriate. Jessie took down my name and number, and called me within a week with news of a gorgeous piece that had just come in. It was just what I wanted, though I was vague about the description - she just knew exactly what style I was going for. Then she recommended a wedding band that had also just come in - and that was perfect too! They have an incredible selection of antique wedding rings, and if they don't have what you're looking for, they can find it.

Pros: Above and beyond customer service, great selection

Cons: Parking on 23rd is a total pain

This store is a real treasure-chest for many tastes. You will find simple and small or large and ornate?all under one roof. It is like walking through a life size jewelry box crossed with your best friend's closet. Every detail here is thought through, from the gilded display cases to the mural by the staircase. Truely inspiring. Vintage pieces are displayed on the first floor and a variety of artisans are showcased on the second floor. (supporting the individual and mostly local artist!) You will find very kind, helpful and knowlegeable staff at the ready for any reasonable request.
When it comes to vintage jewelry, Paula, the owner, is a wealth of information and she has a line on the best crafts people in town to care for older, delicate pieces. Before I found Gilt, I didn't wear jewelry, then I found I loved older designs. Paula took the time to teach me how to care for these old ladies and each piece has lasted beautifully?including the ones I wear everyday.
It is always a pleasure to shop at Gilt.

I am in love with this store! Gilt is one of the few places in town that always has a good selection of vintage diamond rings. Several years ago I was able to find a beautiful 1930's diamond ring which I have been wearing for years without any problems. They have great prices and I especially love that I never see another girl wearing the same ring. When you wear vintage diamonds from Gilt you get to feel good about supporting a local business and you don't have to worry about wearing conflict diamonds. I have also bought some great sterling silver earrings from the 1920's-1950's from Gilt that I always get compliments on at parties. What I like best about going there is that each piece has its own story and the staff are so helpful and willing to share the history of the jewelry. I always have a good experience when I shop here.

Gilt is one of my favorite stores. Paula, the owner, purchases the most unique amazing jewelry. My husband isn't a fan of shopping but ever since discovering Gilt is actually enjoys it. He has purchased a few beautiful pieces from Gilt for me over the years and he says it is like shopping with friends and he knows anything he buys will be well loved. There is never any pressure to buy they have and the best selection of jewelry. I have purchased a number of gifts for friends and with the assistance of these lovely ladies I know I will find the perfect gift. I have a beautiful diamond band my husband purchased for me as a 1st baby gift, one of the tiny diamonds fell out and I went in to have it repaired before I knew it Paula had swept it out of my hand and said she would take care of it. I can't say enough about this beautiful store and the very knowledgeable and charming women that work there. If you are in the neighborhood stop on by I think you will love it too.

I have been shopping at Gilt for many many years and absolutely LOVE it!! The store is filled with amazing jewelry. Whether you want vintage or newly handmade. The engagement/diamond ring section is insanely breathtaking! I've never had bad service, infact I'm amazed at how lovely & knowledgeable the women who work there are! My husband knows that if he's thinking about jewelry for me, then GILT IT IS!!! Now, if only I had more excuses for a diamond ring! You won't be disappointed.

I liked all the good feedback I saw on the reviews about Gilt. Definitely not worth the hype. The store is so small, there are not very many pieces to choose from. I was pretty much ignored while looking. Even when I wanted to have some pieces taken out of the cabinet to look at, it took forever. The person working was super chatty with the other women there I felt invisible. When it comes to helpful service, they are severly lacking. Don't bother.

I love this store! I visited earlier this week looking for the perfect gift for my grandma. My grandma is very specific about the type of jewelry she wears. The girls working took time to show me some options after I explained what I was looking for, and I ended up getting my grandma 2 things because I couldn't decide. They have such a variety of pieces...there is something for everyone!

My wife and I are ardent supporters of this shop. They have a wonderful collection of jewelry. My wife is a particular fan of their inexhaustable supply of Turkish rings. The owner is a sweetheart and everyone is fun to chat with. Thank goodness (for me) that most of the antique rings are too small for my wife's finger or else we would be in the poor house. Though, we do seem to find at least one thing that my wife simply cannot live without.

I would really recommend anyone who is looking for an engagement ring to stop here. My boyfriend (now my husband) and I had arguements about what kind of ring to get. I wanted something simple and he wanted something more lavish -- but sadly didn't have the money for it at the time.

Turns out, a friend of ours had been to Gilt and said we'd find something we'd both agree on. And we did! I have a gorgeous ring (not a small diamond either) and it was right in his price range! The saleswoman was so helpful and willing to go through me trying on rings over and over and over again.

Tip: Don't get discouraged if you go there once and don't find "the one." We went there one Sunday, found some nice rings and then checked back the next Sunday (when we were ready to buy a ring) and found "the one." It's the one I have now and it wasn't there the week before. So keep checking!

I can't believe how many wonderful things they have in this store! Their prices are very reasonable and the staff is very knowledgeable. But, the best part is the jewelry! Old stuff, new stuff, stuff for me, stuff for Mom, stuff for Grandma. Watch out! You'll be making excuses to buy stuff for you whole family here. I'm sure my grandpa wants that Artdeco diamond ring that looks perfect on me.

PROS: Good prices. Large Selection.
CONS: Parking difficult.

Don't expect to find the typical jewelry sets that you would at the mall. This place is full of beautiful, vintage pieces that you may never see again. I went in and saw a pair of earrings that were ideal for me. I left with the idea that I would come back after thinking about it. By the time I returned, of course, they were gone! I will never make that mistake again!

PROS: Beautiful jewelry, reasonably priced
CONS: Hard to find parking

My husband and I bought my engagement ring and band at Gilt over 2 years ago and are still so thrilled with the purchase! We got an awesome deal...even though the set was one of the most expensive in the case it still cost us less than $1000! I love having something unique, and get compliments on my set almost daily. Thanks for the helpful info and customer service. Keep up the fantastic job!!

About a year ago I bought "big pink" at Gilt -- an oversized hot pink bling for my right hand. It's a one-of-a-kind piece and that's what keeps me visiting this store. Lots of unusual rings, necklaces and baubles, old and new, and screwback earrings, which I prefer. Prices are good, but you have to know a bit about vintage jewelry to understand the difference between this and contemporary styles.

My engagement ring is an amazing piece from Gilt. It is unique and was a fantastic buy. For the price of an "off the rack" ring, I ended up with a unique, antique ring with a beautiful diamond. Paula was a fantastic help.

My fiance and I went into Gilt to look at engagement rings. We have been looking around for months and most of the stores we went to made us feel pressured and uncomfortable. Not Gilt! The girl who helped us didn't try to get us to buy the most expensive ring in the store. She stayed well within our budget and helped us choose between many wonderful pieces. We found the perfect ring, but we weren't ready to buy it. She didn't get rude when we left, instead she wrote it down and encouraged us to think about it. Because the experience was so nice, we came back to get it the next day and got info. on bands that we will buy later. We will recommend Gilt to all of our friends!

I happened upon Gilt about 6 years ago while strolling on NW 23rd Ave. Since then, I visit Gilt about once a month. Paula helps me purchase jewelry from her incredible selection for investment purposes. Paula is extremely knowledgeable about jewelry and always very friendly and fun to chat with. If you are looking for a unique piece of jewelry for yourself or a gift, stop by and visit Gilt.
I have been happy with every purchase from Gilt!

I can't remember a time or a place where I have received better customer service! The ladies who work in this shop will bend over backwards to make their customers happy and satisfied. I purchased an incredibly affordable vintage engagement set there and wouldn't you know I lost the stone out of it twice!! (I do a lot of gardening.) They replaced the stone for me and wouldn't even let me pay. Truly, there is not another store in town, or anywhere I've been, that gives more to their customers. Oh, and did I mention the fantastic selection, the incredible owner, or the affordable prices? You couldn't pick a better place to buy gifts (for yourself and others!).

Wow! Was I impressed when I happened upon this store. The owner was so educated about antique jewelry and it's place in history that I found myself not wanting to leave. Her selection is incredible, from fabulous, rare vintage pieces, to modern hip jewelry made by Portlanders. On top of the wide variety of options, her prices vary so much, it seems anyone could afford to purchase one of her many lovely items. I'll definitely be returning to Gilt to buy gifts for loved ones (and for myself).

My partner and I first encountered Gilt in our search for unique rings - we have since purchased an engagement ring and our wedding rings here, and we return whenever we are seeking any kind of unique jewelry. The owner, Paula, is absolutely delightful. She and her staff provide incredibly personalized and friendly service. In fact, we recently had to exchange my partner's ring for another size and Paula personally searched for a replacement until she found a perfect match in the size we needed - an amazing feat for rings from the 1920s! The exchange was made with no hassle at all and Paula was at least as thrilled as us about the perfect match. This is easily among the best shops in Portland - if you want a unique piece and a personal touch, go to Gilt!
