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.
Pros: friendly, knowledgeable, unique, location, atmosphere.
