Until now the hallmarking was voluntary and only a few jewellers(including us) adopted it completely. Another few only kept some of the items hallmarked to make an interesting marketing ploy while rest of the jewellery were non hallmarked. Whereas the majority jeweller community still continues to sell non-hallmarked jewellery resulting in huge losses to consumers.
This new development if passes through the (com)motions of our parliament would be a real boon to consumers.

Continuing with our promise of providing you with exceptional choices in diamond rings in general and engagement ring ideas in particular. We are really excited to have partnered with Platinum Guild International(PGI) to introduce a whole range of platinum bands and rings.
Platinum as many may know is a whole notch above in prices and 30 times rarer than gold. This makes platinum jewellery aspirational. Platinum is a naturally white metal (unlike white gold...which is originally yellow and mixed with an alloy to make it white) and matches with current trend as anything yellow looks blingy.
Platinum bands and rings are becoming popular for their modern and simplistic designs. Take a look at few we have in store( which will eventually increase to 50 designs by Feb-end) while we can get you any design from preciousplatinum.in.

Well starting off this new year on something new to our store and hopefully for a lot of our readers. We introduce ring mountings which are ergonomical and fits snuggly in the palm of your hands when closed as a fist. Most traditional ring designs are round and are comfortable enough but in some designs like for e.g. in a thick gold band style( like the one in poster above) it isn't as comfortable anymore on the side which is enclosed in the palm. This new design sure takes care of that. Take a look at these at our store.

Bought jewellery from your neighbourhood jeweller then relax as you have invested your money in the right place. An Economic Times (ET) article today compares Branded/Online retailer vis-a-vis family jewellers. The comparision is on similar line as we have talked about in a blogpost 2 years ago ( read it here ).
- Family jewellers ( like us ) price jewellery on a daily basis giving consumers the best possible prices, whereas online retailers and branded store use a fixed price concept raking in a margin of 50-100%.
- Family jewellers give a breakup of all the information like weight, making charges, buy back value whereas online retailers/branded stores arent always either so transparent or take their jewellery back or give ridiculously low value in return.
- This concept of fixed pricing thus goes against the very reason for buying gold/diamond jewellery if it cannot give you a better return.

Usual Investment Mode: Consumers are investing in gold coins or bars and putting them in bank lockers or home lockers. With gold prices bound to rise in coming years, it makes for a good investment sense. Take a look at the chart for last 35 years of gold prices.
Gold Bonanza Offer: Instead of putting the gold investment in lockers when you deposit the gold under the gold bonanza offer you get an additional 4% interest on the value deposited. The only criterion being a minimum lock-in period of 1 year. At the end of 1 year a consumer can liquidate the gold at the prevailing rate and And since we launched it almost a year ago we have already mopped Rs.35 lacs worth of gold deposit from customers.
Gold Bonanza offer is uniquely run by Kathana Jewellers only.
Completely inspired by the article below:
