I love this store! A few years ago I came here to try on engagement rings and found something I love very much and yesterday I came in with some broken jewelry and they fixed it for me for no charge. Everyone is always very nice here and they always clean your ring for free so it's nice and sparkly! Thank you!
What an amazing shop, everything in here is a treasure! I love the women that work at Gem Set Love! The prices reflect the high quality, one of a kind pieces!
I knew my wife wanted a vintage filigree ring and I looked all over town to find one. The selection at Gilt was dramatically better than anywhere else I looked, and the prices were very fair. The staff was very busy but super nice, and my wife is extremely happy with the ring I chose. If you are ring shopping this place is worth a look.
This is a lovely store filled with beautiful one of a kind pieces. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. This is the place in Portland to buy an estate wedding ring.
I found the most perfect engagement ring here! I've never seen anything else like it and I get so many compliments. Such a better choice than going to the gross cookie cutter mall stores.
These folks know their stuff. We were perfectly pleased to buy my engagement ring there 8 years ago. We went back for a wedding band recently. With barely a glance, the woman helping us identified my '20's white gold ring and found a number of great options of bands to match.
I went to Gilt based on the reviews I saw here because I wanted good service. I wanted to take my time, find the perfect gift, and get my questions answered. I was wearing battered jeans and a T-shirt, so I feared I'd be shunted off to the side or maybe followed by a store detective. But the woman who helped me, Laurie (or Lori?) acted as if I were the most important millionaire in the USA. She took time, showed me everything she had, talked to me about the person I was buying the gift for, and helped me find something more wonderful than I had even imagined.
THE BEST place to buy jewelry. I bought my fiancee's engagement ring here, we bought our wedding bands here. Their selection of vintage rings is incredible, and their customer service is top notch.
I got my ring that I bought at Gilt appraised. It was appraised for $1000 more than I purchased it! That makes me happy and is a testament that this place really does have good deals.
Everyone is always so helpful and warm. We are so lucky in Portland to have this most impressive and expertly curated shop! It's a delectably dangerous place for people like me who love shiny and rare things!
Whenever I have any jewelry questions or need any jewelry help the ladies there are always uber helpful + sweet. They've all been there forever- it's so nice to see familiar faces that know what they're talking about and are having fun while offering expertise.
Jessie and Carley were extremely kind and super informative. I paid a minimal fee for shipping and am so glad I decided not to get hasty and just use a more conveniently located jeweler.
I can't say enough good things about this place. My engagement ring can't from here, it's so beautiful and truly unique. The woman who helped us remembered us a year later when we went to pick out wedding bands. Great customer service, she was very patient and had good recommendations. I didn't shop anywhere else go look at wedding bands because this place is a one stop shop.
I have purchased a number of items here for my wife. I like that they have a large selection and you can pretty much find something for every budget. What I have NOT experienced is any amount of rudeness from any of the ladies of Gilt. They have always greeted me with a smile and have always obliged when my wife wants to see anything in the cases. They are prompt with their emails when we have any questions with just amazing service all around!
My fiance got my engagement ring here and they were very helpful. Beautiful ring and great service when I came in to get the ring sized after we got engaged.
Wonderful customer service! I had some questions on a certain ring, and one of the ladies even took photos to email to me. When I went in with my guy, they showed us a variety of rings, and they really paid attention to what style I liked.
I just bought my fiance's engagement ring here. They had a fantastic selection of jewelry and a very knowledgeable staff to walk us through all of the options.
The ladies behind the counter really made the entire experience a great one. We felt welcomed from the time we walked into the store. Unlike other jewelry stores I've been in, we did not feel pressured at all. In fact, they were all surprised (as were we) when we walked out of the store 45 minutes later with the perfect 1930s engagement ring. Buying an expensive piece of jewelry while out of town was definitely a little daunting, but they assured us that they will handle any needs that arise in the future. We will stop in any time we are in the area and look through their selection of unique and antique jewelry.
I saw a ring I loved online and asked a ton of questions via Facebook messenger. They were so responsive and helpful! The whole process was so simple and the ring was shipped in no time. It's BEAUTIFUL! It fits just perfectly and I couldn't be happier! Thank you!
My ring is perfect! Not the ring we sought and thought we'd find, but it's us, through and through. Gilt's staff was super helpful, patient, and had plenty of items within our set price range. Thanks!
Just to give these girls a big thank you for always helping me find the best piece of jewelry. They have also helped when I have needed a piece fixed. If all stores had their customer service my life would be easy. I am always learning something about the history of jewelry or facts about a particular gem. I cannot say enough good things about them.
From my first step into the store, I felt welcomed and was helped immediately!! We got my engagement ring, wedding band, wedding day earrings and necklace here. Exactly what I wanted!! The staff worked with me and created earrings for my three bridesmaids. Can't say enough about Gilt, I will be back for sure!! Thank you.
I live in Syracuse, NY and shop here for the best antique and vintage jewelry. It's a long way, but worth it - and everyone at the shop is delightful!
I have many pieces from my #giltgirls. I love the service we get, the variety of the pieces available, and original pieces from local artists. Get your stackers on!!!!
The best people to deal with very helpful with a wealth of information about Antique Jewelry. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Bought my Engagement ring here & it's So Beautiful!!! Vintage 1940's Sapphire & Diamonds in a Platinum seething. Their jewelry is Amazing & Great Customer Service!!!
Vintage jewelry experts! I learned so much on my trip in here. I am kind of a jewelry nerd and so for me to get such depth and examples of amazing work, I was impressed.
The staff here are really helpful, professional, and understand the precious value of antiques and jewelry. We have been coming here for over 6 years, and they will continue to be our go-to for anything jewelry in the Portland area forever.
So friendly, and no pressure! They have a ton of vintage pieces, and know quite a lot about each one. My favorite place for jewelry.
The ladies there were more than helpful to look around and find the exact piece I was looking for as a gift. I also had a ring repaired there and it was fast, cheap and quality work.
This boutique is fantastic if you love art, antiques, and jewelry. They have absolutely gorgeous pieces and a very knowledgeable staff. I could spend hours browsing their amazing cases. I'm slightly jealous of the girls that work there because they get to spend so much time with gorgeous historical jewelry. It's a wonderful place to buy unique gifts.
Was able to find a super unique band for my groom for a very affordable price. My guy isn't ordinary and so an ordinary band didn't suit him. We found a beefy, steel ring that looks like something out of Game of Thrones for him. He as absolutely giddy when we found it. I alsofound great jewlery gifts for my bridal party there as well. Check it out!
The best selection of vintage rings anywhere, and very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful staff. They can do anything! I highly recommend this store to any grooms out there looking for the perfect ring.
I have gotten more compliments on my 1927 champagne diamond engagement ring than any other thing from my wedding. It is perfect and neither me or my husband and to go into debt to purchase it!
I loved every bit of my experience searching for an engagement ring with my fiance there. Their website is filled with vintage and estate beauties. I was pleasantly surprised to find they had a good amount more in store. The sales person let me look without pressure, try on every ring that caught my eye, and let me even take pictures to think it over. We found a 1910 Edwardian diamond ring and got it for a great price.
If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind engagement ring, or wedding bands (for him or her), this is the place. Gilt specializes in unique, antique jewelry - every piece has a history, and the prices a totally reasonable. I highly recommend them. Also, as they're based in Oregon, no sales tax, so you can save a bundle on that end alone.
My experience finding my wedding ring at Gilt could not have been more perfect. Their selection was incredible, and actually very affordable. The staff, especially Kate, was very helpful and extremely patient as we tried on, and re-tried on multiple rings over the course of over an hour. The vibe was right, and we found a totally one of a kind 100 year-old ring that I absolutely adore. Will definitely check back in there during future visits to Portland, and highly recommend the shop to anyone looking for a special vintage piece.
My husband purchased my engagement ring here and it is beautiful. It was made by a local artist but didn't come with a wedding band. We couldn't buy just any wedding band because the stone on the engagement ring curved out on both sides. We went back to gilt to see if they had anything that would fit. They were able to take an antique mold and custom make a band perfect for my ring. It came in a couple weeks and it looks great on my finger!
Love Gilt! I thought I was going to have to have a custom band made to fit my 1950's art deco engagement ring, I went into gilt and the 2nd ring I tried on was a perfect fit! Everyone is super friendly! Awesome selection of antique and vintage pieces!
Lovely selection, lovely ladies! I picked out my engagement ring from here and they are so helpful and knowledgable. I love everything vintage so it was perfect for me.
If you are into vintage or antique jewelry, Gilt is THE place to go in Portland. It is obvious that they love what they do and do not try to push the sale. We bought all three of our rings from them and will continue to use them in the future.
We purchased my engagement ring and both our wedding bands at Gilt. They are so unique and beautiful. My husband's ring was made in 1880! The quality of the pieces is unmatched, and everything comes with proper documentation. They repaired a prong tip for me for free when I was worried my diamond might come loose, and they will steam clean your ring for free whenever you are in the area!
I LOVED working with Gilt, all the Gilt Girls and Paula offer the best and most personal service around. I got an amazing unique vintage ring, and we got matching modern bands that look really good with my engagement ring. All the staff have an eye for a touch that fits with everything, and I love my ring and the service I got at the shop.
My husband and I went to Guilt before we got married to get my engagement ring. It is absolutely stunning and was very inexpensive. I love that it is from the 1930's and looks so unique.
I absolutely love your antique jewelry!! Every time I visit my niece in Portland, I always come to your store to purchase a brooch! - Laurie
I just wanted to drop you a note saying "Thank You!" My boyfriend proposed to me last night with a ring he bought from your store back in December. Of course I said yes and I was overjoyed to find out he had purchased from your establishment. I adore my ring (1940s white gold with diamonds and lab sapphires) and can't wait to come in and have it sized with y'all.Thank you again. You made one of the happiest events of my life even more special with your incredible product. All the best, Kate and Derek in Texas
I have purchased several pieces from Gem Set Love over the past 5 years. All of them beautiful and timeless! Everyone at the store is so knowledgeable about each piece, the time period, and the historic influences. Also, they seem to cherish my jewelry as much as I do, they remember my rings and encourage cleanings every 6 months (which is complementary!!) I am definitely a lifetime customer! - Lila Z
I recently purchased a gorgeous Alice Quam turquoise ring from gemsetlove.com after seeing it on their Instagram site. The ring arrived in a timely manner and was beautifully boxed and wrapped. This was my first purchase with gemsetlove and I was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of the ring, presentation of the package and overall VIP treatment, that I will definitely be back for more gems! Thank you again. Jennifer from Massachusettes
I adore gem set love, I have over the 6 yrs I've lived in Portland bought way way too many pieces of jewelry and how could I not? The girls there are fellow jewelry addicts who are willing to show you anything without making you feel like if u don't get something your wasting there time (which is huge for anyone looking for something unique or just perfect). The selection is vast I've bought 2 pairs of earrings around $30 and an amazing unique heart attack worthy locket around $5000. I've bought many pieces for family members and are their favorite pieces. The ladies here are easy to work with willing to give advice, help in anyway they can and find you the perfect piece. I recommend them to everyone and will be back for as long as there. - Melanie
