Gazdar

Founded 1933

They attracted the attention of the Nizam as well as the Royal families of several princely Indian states such as Patiala and Baroda who all became clients. Hollywood stars such as Alfred Hitchcock, Shirley Mclean, and Gregory Peck were also drawn to the bold elegant designs which the firm created, infused with their trademark historical flavour.

In 1990 the business passed to Dharmendra Gandhi who had been working with the Gazdars since the 1970s. Today he remains at the helm running the company alongside his son Ravin.  Gazdar jewellery, both contemporary and heritage deigns, are still characterised by stunning gemstones set in designs that honour the beauty and culture of India. Their collection also includes Mughal, Indian and Chinese jade, porcelain and crystal objet d’art, all in keeping with the regal grandeur of the firm’s image.
