Over the years, KGK has become a go-to name for end-to-end gems and jewellery needs. The group is present in the entire spectrum of mining, sourcing, manufacturing and distributing coloured stones, diamonds and jewellery. It is present across the value chain to ensure smooth operations and impeccable quality standards.
The current trends in the gems and jewellery industry in India suggest that it will continue to contribute about 7% to the country’s GDP. Globally too, India is placed in a leadership position where demand for Indian gems and jewellery products both in the business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets is very strong. KGK is well positioned in both the segments with manufacturing units and offices spread across Asia, Australia, North and South America, Europe and Africa.
KGK has transformed into a multinational company with operations spread across 19 countries. It employs more than 12000 people and has diversified into mining, real estate, infrastructure, retail and more.
The company is a world leader in space of diamonds and its diamond operations have earned the coveted status of a De Beers Sightholder, an Alrosa Alliance member and a Rio Tinto select Diamantaire.
Navratan Kothari, the group’s patriarch, has steered the company from the 60s to areas where few traditional jewellers dare to take their businesses. The company has two more strong leaders: Sanjay Kothari, Group Vice Chairman and Sandeep Kothari, Group Managing Director.
The group’s philosophy strongly believes in giving back to the society. Other than the Bhagwan Mahaveer Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Jaipur, the group has also restored Jal Mahal and revitalised the Mansagar Lake.
