Diamonds
The Kimberly Process

Harshad is passionate about ensuring that his business is based on fair, transparent trading.

A keen globetrotter, Harshad collects his gemstones as he travels around the world, sourcing rare and unusual stones of exceptional quality and character. Being at the source of learning the whereof each stone inspires him to design around the stone. He has often been to the mines personally met with the people with whom he is trading. Having been working in the industry for over 25 years, he has forged personal relationships with the stone dealers based on fair dealing and mutual trust.

In sourcing our diamonds, we follow the Kimberly Process imposed by the United Nations. We buy through authorised diamantaires so we can ensure that all the people involved in the making of your piece were given a fair deal.

BEATING THE CANCER
SUPPORTING V CARE

In India, 30% of all cancers can be prevented and another 30% can be cured with early detection. Some of the deadliest cancers in India – Oral, Breast, Cervical, Head & Neck, Lung are strongly influenced by diet, lack of physical activity, personal hygiene and tobacco use.

Lack of awareness – our biggest enemy. V Care focuses on cancer prevention and early detection by partnering with schools, colleges and social groups to create awareness and encourage healthier lifestyle decisions that can reduce the risk of cancer. Our volunteers embrace new opportunities to deliver lifesaving, cancer prevention messages. What's more, V Care also collaborates with other organizations to enhance education and outreach efforts.
