A Journey That Spans Almost 30 Years
Live Our JourneyWith the establishment of the organization's first store in 1986 at Ballard Pier, Mumbai, Ken instantaneously put business ingenuity to work and began utilizing his networking skills to generate footfalls for the debut store. In order to create new avenues of business, over the years he forged key alliances with travel agencies, public transport officials, and other entrepreneurs who had a well-established expat/international customer base. His exceptional knack for Sales and management of Operations allowed the business to grow substantially within the first decade.
A second store was inaugurated at Colaba, Mumbai in 1992, and shortly after that Operations were migrated entirely to the Colaba outlet. Later, in 2001, another store was launched in Oberoi Hotel, Mumbai. In the years that preceded the opening of the second store, Ken's son Gary began visiting the store to help out his father and in turn developed a long-standing affinity for gemstones and precious metals. Gary completed his education and, thereafter, a specialized course in jewelry design. Since then, he and his wife Ashi have both played a vital role in furthering Ken's dream of having a world renowned jewelry business, and have worked alongside him to build the business to where it stands tall today.
In 2010, the organization's Head Office and main suburban outlet was inaugurated at Bandra West, Mumbai. Today, Gemsstar Jewelers enjoys a stellar reputation amongst its loyal customers from across the globe.
Our original gemstone business, which had previously operated under a different name, was in fact started by Gary's Maternal Grandfather (Mother's Father) and by the grace of God and the kindness of our customers our legacy continues.
