Jewellers to Royalty
During the era of kings and queens, before Jaipur Jewels became the brand it is trusted today, the first generation served as jewelers to the royal houses of India from years 1893 to 1904. Jaipur Jewels ancestors were the jewellers of choice for prominent regal patrons like His Highness The Khan of Kalat, Mir Mahmood Khan Baloch, Balochistan. Having catered to regal sensibilities with its perceptive designs over the years, the House of Jaipur Jewels was officially appointed jewellers to General Nawab Sadiq Muhammad Khan Abbasi, the Nawab of Bhavalpur in 1904. This significant landmark gives their creativity and their designs further recognition and reinforces their position as jewellers of repute who effortlessly transform jewels into impeccable pieces of art.
Come partition time, and the next generation takes the legacy forward. Roopchand Naheta’s son, Shambunath Naheta successfully takes on the task of finding a new base in India. From the heads of royalty to the hands of modern craftsmen, Jaipur Jewels creates jewellery that transforms the beauty of bygone eras into contemporary creations and continues to excel in making a mark with handcrafted jewellery, unique designs, exquisite cuts and intricate craftsmanship.
A Star is Born
In 1966, successor Milapchand Naheta continued the century-old family legacy of crafting exquisite jewellery. Along with his son Subhash Naheta, brand Jaipur Jewels was officially born in this year. While royalty becomes history, Jaipur Jewels continue being synonymous with jewellery that is worthy of keeping in your family for generations. Fine hand-crafted jewellery by the brand finds widespread acceptance in the houses of the elite and the journey continues onwards.
Flagship Store Launch
13 years pass and another landmark year (1979) marks the arrival of Jaipur Jewels in the buzzing city of Mumbai. The family shifts base and the brand’s first boutique opened in the country’s financial capital in the upscale area of Nepean Sea Road. A legacy that can be found through the pages of history continues creating masterpieces for its prestigious patrons from the heart of Mumbai.
Winds of Change
Like everything else, a new set of heads brought along a fresh set of ideas. Jaipur Jewels went through a thorough makeover in 2014, under the Gen Next scions Vineet and Amit Naheta. The brothers stepped up to the exciting challenge of taking the brand to greater heights. Moulding the brand’s presence and shaping its destiny in the times to come with invigorating designs, refreshing outlooks and re-branding of the traditional house, the current crop of Nahetas is all about being in tune with the current times, all the while respecting and protecting their heritage.
More Jewels in the Crown
2014 is the year when a jewellery aficionado’s dream destination spread its wings with their presence in two new cities. Besides the flagship store at Mumbai, wedding dreams now also come true at a second destination Sunder Nagar, New Delhi and the recently opened Jaipur Jewels store in Gurubagh, Varanasi. True to their motto, their only advice while taking the leap of faith is: Make time stop, make this moment last a lifetime and enjoy this moment of heritage that Jaipur Jewels has to offer.
