Making the ring that she wants Popping the question soon? Or perhaps the ring is on and you are looking for wedding bands?

“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” goes one of the best-known and most-loved sayings in the business of ring picking. Just as Mr. or Mrs. Right should be special, so should the ring. Gulset is a brand specialising in engagement rings and wedding bands, with its own goldsmith and designer at hand. “The jewellery should be a part of you, to the point where you feel naked without it,” owner and founder Celine Gulset says. While rings are at the centre of attention, Gulset also makes earrings, cuff links and necklaces to mention some. “The style is elegant and classic, which encourages the wearer to use the pieces at work as well as at dinner parties,” she says. 58 | Issue 95 | December 2016
A typical customer is looking for something unique and personalised, far from the high street shops. “The customers are welcome to join me at the workshop where they can pick materials, designs and stones themselves,” says Gulset, but emphasises that she also makes collections. “The thing all my products have in
common is a focus on high quality, using solid gold and hand picking the gemstones.” Just a glimpse at the collections is enough to show that this brand is for appreciators of real jewellery who are willing to spend both time and budget to find the right piece. “I want to make items that can be passed down generations,” Gulset says. Gulset jewellery is available from the showroom in Asker just outside Oslo, as well as from a webshop. It is also available through three resellers, including the wedding department at the iconic Christiania Glasmagasin in Oslo.
