The KGK Group was founded in 1905 by Kesrimal Kothari and Ghisilal Kothari of Jaipur (India), with the humble task of trading gemstones between India and Burma. With a global presence across 19 countries today, the privately held group has evolved into one of the most preferred brands in the gemstone and jewellery industry, with a vertically integrated operation that spans the entire supply chain from mines to brands. KGK is one of the few conglomerates covering the entire spectrum of mining, sourcing, manufacturing and distribution of coloured gemstones, diamonds and jewellery for over a century.
KGK Group has a resilient team of 12,000 employees with operations and offices in Asia, Australia, North and South America, Europe and Africa. Having achieved an impeccable reputation in the gemstone, diamond and jewellery trade, the group has recently diversified into real estate.
“The KGK Group, which continues into 2018 as an Honoured Partner, is proud of its association with the JNA Awards. Every year, the JNA Awards provides a platform that recognises and honours the incredible talent blooming across the gemstone and jewellery industry, setting benchmarks and spotlighting powerful trends that will shape the jewellery industry of tomorrow. KGK is delighted to actively take part in initiatives that stimulate industry growth and inspire creativity. I wish the JNA Awards more success in its 2018 edition.”
