Can Diamond & Jewel

Kürkçüler Caddesi Ruby Han #4 , Kapaliçarsi
Istanbul , Turkey

The labyrinthian Grand Bazaar in Istanbul’s Sultanahmet neighborhood can be disorienting for shoppers, especially tourists hunting authentic goods at the best bargains. Those seeking old-world jewelry should stop into Can Diamond and Jewel inside Rabia Han in the southeast corner. Opened in 1990, owner Ibrahim Uslucan stocks reproductions of 17th- and 18th-century Russian and Austrian jewelry and a few choice originals. Designs are often whimsical such as bird-shaped rings, mock oyster-shell necklaces, and butterfly broaches — all heavily laden with diamonds.
