Veekay Jewels


the making

In 1961 Ramankant V Doshi embarked on a journey with a dream to create an entity that would leave a mark in the diamond jewellery industry. He started small in Chennai and got help from his brother Devendra Doshi, who set up Kamlesh Diamonds in Bangalore only 10 years later. Another 4 years later, they were joined by Vinod Doshi who started Veekay Diamants in Mumbai, the hub of the country’s diamond market at Prasad Chambers (now BKC).

The business grew, new offices were opened, as Harendra Doshi also joined his elder brother in Chennai. Up to now, all the business the brothers were involved in only covered loose gemstones, diamonds and pearls. Soon they realised the jewellery industry would be a logical next step. The right time had come and Diamond Jewellery export was born. 

The brothers had turned themselves to manufacturing jewellery with skilled artisans in the domestic regions. It’s also around this time that Kamlesh Doshi moves to Belgium to set up an office in Antwerp, diamond capital of the world. He calls it Varundiam and it’s from there that he started sourcing the finest quality of diamonds for the group. 

The base for VEEKAY was now established and to give it further strength, a modern factory was acquired in SEEPZ (Special Economic Zone) under the name United Jewellery Manufacturing PVT LTD, which started primarily solely for the Spanish market.

This allowed them to use the latest technological advancements for manufacturing jewellery for the international market. Building further on the benefits of using machinery in the process, another factory was soon erected to serve purely for the domestic market under the label of VEEKAY DIAMANTS PVT LTD.  Catering to more than 350 showrooms in India domestically and growing.

Then came along VEEKAY JEWELS BV, under Varun Doshi, who has made it his goal to make VEEKAY a global player and to make sure in this way the presence is felt everywhere.

Employing around 300 people and catering in 17 countries, with retail chains/brands worldwide, the group aims to expand into further sections of the world and continues to grow.
