Today, India is the preferred sourcing destination for quality gems and jewellery for the world, and is the undisputed leader in manufacturing diamonds. It is the only country that offers a truly impressive variety of gems and plain and studded jewellery set with diamonds and coloured gemstones. The country manufactures a range of polished diamonds in every shape and size and the vast product offering caters to every market in the world.
India’s jewellery sector, too, has similar strengths that are hard to find at this scale and quality in a single location. Today’s Indian gems blend handmade artistry with innovative, best-in-class technology to design modern jewellery. The country has gained global popularity because of its talented craftsmen, its superior practices in cutting and polishing fine diamonds, precious stones and designing jewellery.
India offers a best quality and a wide variety of gemstones, including emeralds, morganites and tanzanites, etc. LGD is a sector that has shown tremendous growth in the last few years. India clearly has an advantage as we already are the leaders in cutting and polishing diamonds. India exported LGD worth $1.3 billion in 2021-22 and this figure is expected to cross $2 billion in 2022-23.
