Jewellery is a very emotional thing and for us Indians, jewellery holds a great amount of sentimental value, no matter what occasion it is.
For Indian women, jewellery is considered an elementary part of adornment according to the local customs, more so in weddings and festivals. In India it’s not uncommon to see women dressed up with a few expensive jewellery pieces adorning them regardless of their social status or economic background.
Such is the affection for gold jewellery that nearly every Indian citizen makes it a point to reserve a considerable part of their earnings specifically to buy gold jewellery on auspicious occasions.
With numerous contenders in the market vying for attention, it gets difficult to select a brand that assures quality and is dedicated to provide the best service to its customers.
Dassani Brothers, is one such Jewellery brand that witnessed a wide acceptance in the market ever since it started operating in 1984 as a Polki Jewellery manufacturer.
To get some interesting facts about the latest jewellery trends these days and to know the company’s objectives , we got to interview Mr. Sumit Dassani, one of the partners at Dassani Brothers.
Q. Tell us a bit about the founders and what propelled them to start the legacy in 1984?

Q. How does the company assess the current market trends and what strategy is implemented to adapt to the changing consumer preferences?
The jewellery industry is back on the track and is witnessing a boost again after the pandemic. Consumer demand for jewellery is increasing and the industry has come up with amazing trends this year.
Shifting from a boring lifestyle, customers are willing to explore and experiment with their appearances. Luxury has become a stronger demand than ever and customers are turning towards comfort with focus on premium quality.
A hike in the requirement of minimal elegant jewellery designs like chokers, statement earrings and lightweight pendants/lariats will be seen as a major trend in the coming months and customers will be chasing different and colourful designs more than decent and simple designs.
Dassani Brothers believes in following as well as creating the trend by crafting the desired jewellery and fulfilling the needs of the consumers.
Q. Any challenges encountered during COVID-19?
The gems and Jewellery sector have faced a rapid drop in sales during the pandemic. Consumers have faced huge losses and due to persistent event cancellations, the jewellery industry has also experienced dynamic change.
But now it’s recovering as the industry is adapting to the digital trends and customers are now more comfortable with online jewellery purchases. Along with the existing customers, new customers are actively exploring and intensively buying their favourite jewellery pieces online and wearing jewellery even on ordinary days has become a trend.
Q. What is the plan of action for the expansion of operations and reputation of Dassani Brothers?
We are looking forward to expanding our b2b business in India as well as globally. In India tier-2 cities including Nagpur, Kolhapur, Nashik and others are our next target. We’re planning to expand more in Bahrain, Saudi, Europe, the USA and other countries in the coming years.
