History of Suashish Jewellery Ltd


 India has a glorious historical past in diamonds and has revived the past tradition in the sixties when she entered the fray as a manufacturer exporter of cut and polished diamonds, and later on jewellery as well. After spending initial years in establishing the industry in a defined global market place, India established herself among the top manufacturer and exporter of cut and polished diamonds.  The main reason among others for her excellent growth is attributed to India's skills in converting small diamonds which had so far been discarded as uncuttable into gems.  Further India's advantage is its cheap labour, which gives a comparative price advantage.

 Today the gems and jewellery industry is India's second largest
 Foreign exchange earner.
