RENOVATING THE IMPERIAL TREASURE
Nourished by the ancient cultures of this land and a strong value of generosity, Gilan is always enthusiastic about giving back to the community. Therefore, the House was honored when bestowed with the opportunity to sponsor the restoration of the four chambers of the world-famous Topkapi Palace Treasury Hall in Istanbul in 1999. This was the best way not only to express Gilan's respect for the 600 year-old tradition of Turkish jewellery-making mastery but also to ensure that this valuable heritage was preserved for future generations.
The chambers of the Topkapi Treasury, the third-largest treasury in the world, were renovated to their former glory under Gilan's sponsorship.
