Commenting on the upcoming festive season, Mr. Sachin Jain, Managing Director, De Beers India, said, “Akshaya Tritiya is an auspicious occasion to purchase jewellery, however this year we feel that the festivity would be larger than ever as all markets are fully operational post the pandemic. It has been a big comeback for the Gems & Jewellery industry and that has got to do with what diamonds and jewellery mean for the Indian consumer. Today, consumers are inclined towards purchasing items that hold meaning and value, thus diamonds are more sought after due to their inherent preciousness. Moreover, since the markets were closed for the past 2 years, there is a pent-up demand therefore we foresee that this Akshaya Tritiya will be extremely strong accelerating the momentum of diamond jewellery sales. We are really upbeat on the upcoming season, where we wish to celebrate happiness & want everyone to feel safe during this festive time.”
Dr. C. Vinod Hayagriv, Managing Director, C Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers said, “We are optimistic on an upward trajectory this festive season owing to the first fully operational Akshaya Tritiya post two years of the pandemic. With our diverse and unique range of designs that blends the best of both worlds of traditional and contemporary jewellery, our customers will certainly enjoy a notable retail experience this festive season. Our long association with De Beers Forevermark has witnessed a healthy demand for fine diamonds ensuring stringent selection of the finest natural diamonds that are as unique as the wearer.”
Mr. Joseph Prince, Managing Director, Prince Jewellery said, “We have been witnessing strong uptick in consumer sentiment and sales over the last six months and the upcoming festive and wedding season will continue to drive this demand further. At the moment, we see a growing trend of self-purchase among modern financially independent women, as jewellery, particularly diamonds have become a visible symbol of their self-expression and independence.
