HUID: India's quest for GOLD PURITY EXCELLENCE

The Indian gold jewellery sector’s journey towards hallmarking has been long, slow and bumpy. Although voluntary hallmarking became available in April 2000, compromised gold was still widely sold in the market — a fact of which neither public nor government was ignorant. In June 2021, however, hallmarking became mandatory. Manufacturers, jewellers and consumers now must quickly come to grips with the new purity norms, which juxtapose a unique six-digit ID for each item with the utterly inadequate state of India’s hallmarking infrastructure. The Retail Jeweller weighs the pros and cons of this sharp turn in the current, mid pandemic moment, when the gems and jewellery industry is more dependent than ever on gold sales.

INTERVIEW - AJOY CHAWLA

As long ago as the early 2000’s, Tanishq, the preeminent brand in organised jewellery retail, made known that gold purity standard in India is questionable. It equated purity with trust, winning over millions of customers. Will mandatory hallmarking erode that lead? Not so, Ajoy Chawla, CEO, Jewellery Division, Titan Company Limited, tells Soma Bhatta - trust is an edifice of many levels, and purity is only the first one.

MISSING THE EMI OPPOORTUNITY

It’s hardly unusual for consumers to wish to own something they cannot afford to purchase outright. EMIs are the simplest way to fulfill this wish. They empower shoppers as well as retailers.

The Retail Jeweller looks back to the pioneers of EMIs in jewellery, and around at the cutting-edge enterprises of today that are finding ways of bringing this essential tool of consumer finance back into the service of jewellery buyers
