Samantha to attend inaugural function

India's premiere diamond jewellery retail chain Kirtilals will open its first showroom in the city and 10th in the country here on Wednesday afternoon at C.V.S.V. Raghu Chambers on Aseelmetta main road near Sampath Vinayaka temple.

Announcing this at a media conference on Tuesday, Chief Operating Officer of the group Kishore G. Paramasivan said that Tollywood film actor Samantha will attend the inaugural function.

The group was founded in 1939 by manufacturing and retailing diamond jewellery in South India operating from the city of Coimbatore.

Kirtilals had the unique distinction of being the first company to get ISO certification for both its retail and production units.

“About one-and-a-half years ago, we made the diamond-studded crown for Lord Venkateswara of Tirumala and during the recent evaluation of the entire jewellery of TTD, ours was also tested and found to be of best quality.

We are shortly manufacturing a 60-kg. gold saree for Sri Mavullamma temple in Bhimavaram of West Godavari district and the donors will be placing their order and pay advance during the opening ceremony tomorrow,” he stated.

Kirtilals also had a global presence with clients across three continents in over 56 countries, he added.

Replying to questions Mr. Paramasivan said that Kirtilals had plans for expansion in Western and northern India also and in the next couple of years, as many as 16 showrooms would be added.

Director Suraj Santakumar, Store Operations Manager Madhusudan, Head-Marketing T.K. Sudhakar, and Head-Retail Operations N. Rajendran were also present.
