My family's history with India dates back to the the late 1870’s. This precious heritage has been the inspiration for our family business. My father and grandfather spent their lifetimes living and working in India, and I was born and brought up there, leaving only in my twenties. Our jewels are a celebration of our love-affair with this land.
FAMILY & VALUES • JEWELLERY • CHARITY • SUSTAINABILITY
We are a family business with family values
Gem Bazaar is all about family. My husband has financial and sales expertise, our daughter is our main model and I am the creative designer. We have been working with the same small workshops in Jaipur from the beginning. Now they are almost family too.
Trust and relationship are at the heart of the business. The early roots of Gem Bazaar were fostered in the New Market in Kolkata at an iconic jewellery store run by a refugee from Tibet. I learnt from this humane and gentle woman that business is every bit as much about relationships as it is about products.
My family history in India goes back over 150 years. I was born and brought up in Kolkata, where my family lived. India runs deep in our blood. Growing up in India is all about the senses - the sights, smells, sounds, tastes and colours of this exotic country.
