ıstanbul heritage

In 1971, the visionary Hilat Elmas established a storefront amidst a maze of silk carpets, exotic leathers and brilliantly hued lanterns in Istanbul’s famed Grand Bazaar. Inspired by ancient archaeology, myth and art, Hilat jewelry embodies the mystique of the Historical Peninsula.


Using only pure 24k gold and the finest gemstones, Hilat jewelry is individually and meticulously handcrafted by Istanbul’s most skilled artisans. Each piece is touched by many specialists versed in ancient jewelry-making techniques, such as hand hammering, mosaics, filigrees and granulations. The jewelry travels through Istanbul's hidden courtyards and meandering passageways as it passes through Hilat’s ateliers.
