48th IGJA ceremony Won by GemPundit
The gemstone industry in India is growing exponentially. It is estimated to grow at rate of 16% annually expected to reach INR 6.64 trillion by the end of 2023. Amid such growth, it is essential to recognize the pioneers like GemPundit leading the bandwagon with a strong repertoire of products and exceptional customer services.
IGJA or India Gems & Jewellery Awards given every year by the Gem and Jewellery Export and Promotion Council (GJEPC), represent a solid step in this direction. This year was no exception, though the competition was tough with only 27 awards being distributed and many leading conglomerates competing for the honours.
GemPundit, the leading online marketplace for gems and jewellery, won great accolades at the 48th IGJA ceremony held at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai.
A Star-Studded Ceremony
Just like the sparkle of gemstones and pure metals illuminating the night sky, the awards ceremony was a glittering affair. The event was attended by leading lights from the jewellery industry and high-profile personalities from Bollywood, including Vipul Shah – Vice Chairman-GJEPC, Sabyasachi Ray – Executive Director GJEPC, Sonali Bendre, and Anupam Kher.
From GemPundit, the event was attended by Nitin Yadav, CEO, Sunil Sihag, Operations Head, and Sumit Beniwal, Vice President.
Awards to Celebrate the Best in the Gem & Jewellery Industry
The awards ceremony was an occasion for the industry to celebrate its best and brightest. The winners were decided based on their contribution to the jewellery industry and the impact they have had on society at large.
GemPundit was awarded for its innovation in online jewellery retailing under three different categories, viz. Export to the Highest Number of International Clients and Importing Countries, Best E-Commerce Platform and Best Innovation in Digital Marketing.
“This year’s awards were particularly meaningful as they recognized our efforts to bring transparency and trust to an industry that has historically been fraught with fraud and manipulation” says the CEO.
