Jewellery Industry Overview & Scope

The Gems and Jewellery industry in India is the backbone of the economy by being one of the major contributors towards the export led growth of India. The industry has gained global popularity because of its talented craftsmen, its superior practices in cutting and polishing fine diamonds and precious stones and its cost-efficiencies.

Jewellery designing, manufacturing and trading has been an integral part of our society since time immemorial, and with it has evolved interest in creativity, precision, knowledge of precious and semi-precious stones that was initially confined only to royals and the upper echelons of society. The Jewellery Design course at ARCH is the epitome of excellence in delivery, facilitating the learning of students by generously exposing them to the traditional crafts of India alongside technology, and inspiring their engagement with the creation of captivating objects of desire.
