Pankaj Chetan

When I migrated from Kuwait to Chennai in 2003, I had a desire to create beautiful and unique jewellery. Khwaahish, my jewellery brand in Chennai, brought those desires to life and won the trust of the South. I dream of taking brilliant diamond jewellery to millions across India. ILD is my online offering for the women who desire to wear lightweight diamond jewellery everyday. So go ahead! Obsess! Collect! Cherish! I Love Diamonds, and so do you!

A keen second generation jeweler, Pankaj is a certified gemologist of international repute. With Khwaahish he achieved coveted success. Now, Pankaj's new brand of lightweight diamond jewellery boutique is going online. And this time, with neo-modern motifs and themes - a radical shift from the traditional jewellery culture. After years of research and hard work, he is proud to unveil his precious dream - I Love Diamonds. A true trendsetter indeed!
