The value of our pieces is achieved through a judicious mix of fine designs, high quality material, traditional craftsmanship and state of the art technology. The result is a unique piece of jewellery made to perfection by the ingenuity and creative flair of our designers. Nestling in velvet boxes or gracing the skin of the wearer, every creation perpetuates the Indian tradition of new and classic jewellery.

Two-thirds of the metal mined annually goes into the making of jewellery, amounting to over 3,100 tonnes. Due to its easy workability, gold can be hammered so thin that sunlight can shine through it. The options for creative expression are therefore almost endless. One of three types of techniques is employed in the process of jewellery making. The “lost wax” technique, or investment casting, was developed more than 4,000 years ago. It enabled the jewellery maker, and still does so, to make exact replicas of an item. This technique is the most often used one, making for about sixty percent of all gold jewellery produced. The method consists of an article being replicated by forcing moulted gold in to a mould. It duplicates jewellery quickly and precisely. Since its invention, investment casting has transformed the designing and making of jewellery as it can cast an item much less expensively than if it were individually manufactured.

Another method is known as stamping, or die-striking. By this approach, pieces of jewellery are pressed out, entirely or in part, by driving hardened steel dies of different forms into a leaf of gold in a stamping motion. This process is also generally used for mass production of a particular design or shape. Cleaning and polishing is the last step in jewellery making, and it applies to all of the above methods.

Chain making is a different technique. In the process, loops of gold wire are joined to create a chain, shaped in such a way as to allow flexibility. Although hand-made gold chains are widely available, computerized machines are beginning to take over and are fabricating a wide variety of different designs.
