Kirtilals unveils bridal jewellery collection

30 january 2014

Gold and diamond jewellery retailer Kirtilals recently launched its largest diamond necklace collection to mark the ensuing wedding season. The collection has over 500 different bridal jewellery pieces, with their price tags ranging Rs 2 lakhs- Rs 1 crore... The designs are a mix of traditional, classical and contemporary.
The company has also launched a virtual studio concept, where customers can virtually design necklaces of their choice with their designers; and this concept is catching up at their other outlets too.
As the gold and jewellery industry faced challenging times in the last quarter of 2013, with tight gold import norms putting the squeeze on the availability of gold in the domestic market, Kirtilals has sharpened its focus on diamonds.
Today, diamond accounts for about 50 per cent of Kirtilals’ sales – earlier it was about 30 per cent. Kirtilals procure raw diamonds directly from the mines in South Africa through De Beers and have them cut and polished in China, before bringing them to India for the final product.
