One of the earliest forms of decoration, Jewellery design, is flourishing as a lucrative career. The jewellery Design department of ARCH is the epitome of excellence in delivery, facilitating students' learning by generously exposing them to the traditional crafts of India alongside technology and inspiring their engagement with the creation of beautiful objects of desire.

While offering this course, ARCH's mission is to add value to the Indian gems and jewellery industry through creativity, innovation, research, and quality consciousness in both fabrication and business.

Industry Overview

The Indian Gems and Jewellery Industry has become the backbone of the economy by being one of the significant contributors to India's export-led growth. The industry has gained global popularity because of its talented craftsmen, best practices in cutting and polishing fine diamonds and precious stones, and cost-efficiency.

With the creation of Brand India and looking towards a future where the craft would meet the high end, our vision extends to evolve as torchbearers in Research, Development and Innovation in Jewellery and Accessory Design, with world-class inputs in the design and crafting of such objects of desire along with the identification of trends and the development of forecasts.

Given India's rising overall literacy rates, this sector is beginning to appreciate the need for education and the impact of such inputs on business. According to the National Skill Development Corporation, there is an expected demand for skilled personnel to create multiple designs to meet customer needs. Requirements will also be linked with the ability to interact and work with foreign clients.
