Launched by the late Mr. Brij Gopal Mathur in 1862, Kohinoor Jewellers is an extension of a family of jewellers, collectors and promoters of rare pieces of arts and artefacts. In a way, the brand and the family define and complete each other, with their legacy and heritage interspersing to create and define the iconic luxury precious and semi-precious jewellery brand.
Kohinoor Jewellers believe that jewellery is not just a style statement but an expression or a mirror of one’s personality. Being sophisticated and fashionable, each piece is meticulously crafted and created with a purpose. Most of their collections are not just pieces of jewellery but an art form – an art of storytelling through jewellery.
Transcending from the glorious era of the Mughal Dynasty to the advent of the British Empire, the brand has steadily strengthened its roots and reached new heights as it progressed into the post-independence era. The Kohinoor family was traditionally with the Mughals in Delhi, where they lived in old Delhi at Chandhi Chowk. Their ancestors moved to Agra in 1857 with the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar, into the old walled city of Mughal Agra. The British rulers bestowed on them the property at Old Drummond Road in Agra (now known as Mahatma Gandhi Road) where the late Mr. Brij Gopal Mathur started the business.
Mr. Brij Gopal Mathur, a great visionary and connoisseur of gems, jewellery and art, was the moving force in ably bringing Kohinoor Jewellers to where it is now. The business reached a pinnacle under the pioneering vision of talented and gifted Mr. Ghanshyam Gopal Mathur, who relentlessly worked to create a niche in exclusive jewellery with gems of highest quality.
Kohinoor Jewellers believe that jewellery is not just a style statement but a mirror of one’s personality. Each piece of jewellery is meticulously crafted and created with a purpose to provide the sophisticated yet fashionable look. Kohinoor Jewellers stand for the diversity, history and natural beauty found in India. The exquisite jewellery collection is a seamless fusion of timeless elegance and contemporary design sensibilities. Kohinoor Jewellers showcase an illustrious range of globally inspired jewellery ranging from the Indus valley civilization to the great Himalayan mountain range. The creations are the mélange of glittering traditions of India with a dash of modern styling.
