India has never sparkled this way for a very long time. Indias top diamond brands Nakshatra and Asmi are all set to be launched in Middle East by Damas, the largest retailing jewellery brand chain in the Middle East in association with the Gitanjali Group, which was announced at a glittering event today. This is a great accomplishment for India, which till recent times was looked upon as a base for sourcing raw material and is now set to debut with Indian jewellery brands in the international market. The Gitanjali Group scored a double whammy by announcing a tie-up with Bollywood film director Rakesh Roshan for his forthcoming film Krrish - sequel to Koi Mil Gaya, wherein Ddamas would launch a signature line of jewellery inspired by the film, this is in keeping with Ddamas completing two years.

It was truly an evening to remember, where the gorgeous Bollywood beauty Celina Jaitley along with other models set the ramp on fire adorning jewellery from Nakshatra, Asmi, Ddamas fit for royalty, at a fashion show by designer Vikram Phadnis.

Under the retail tie-up Damas, Dubai would launch Nakshatra and Asmi in Dubai making them first Indian jewellery brands to go global. For this Damas has entered into a strategic tie-up for Nakshatra with Brightest Circle Jewellery Pvt. Ltd., (a tie-up between three diamond sight holders Gitanjali Group, Dimexon Diamonds and Mahindra Brothers) the official company appointed by DTC to make Nakshatra a global brand. And Gitanjali Group is the sole licensee for taking Asmi international.

Said Mr. Tawhid Abdullah, MD of Damas "In this short span of two years, Ddamas has not only emerged as a market leader but has also carved out a niche for itself amongst the consumers. This is a remarkable achievement for us and we plan to further strengthen this relationship by launching Nakshatra and Asmi in association."

Mr. Mehul Choksi, Gitanjali Group, said, "Gitanjali Group has always believed in raising the bar for itself which in turn have become industry benchmarks. Its a great honor to be part of launching Indias maiden jewellery brands Nakshatra and Asmi in the international market just the way we were part of launching Indias first branded jewellery."

On the occasion of Ddamas, a partnership between Gemplus Jewellery Ltd., one of the largest exporters of diamond studded gold and platinum jewellery in India and Damas, the largest retailing jewellery brand chain in the Middle East, completing two years of launch, the brand has tied up with Bollywood film director Rakesh Roshan for his upcoming film Krrish, wherein Ddamas would launch an exclusive line of jewellery inspired by the film. Said Mr. Rakesh Roshan " Ddamas is a young and vibrant brand which in its short journey has to its credit many milestones. With this association we hope to connect with our fans on an emotional level wherein the signature line inspired by the film Krrish would give them a chance to preserve a piece from the film for long time to come." Added Mr. Dharmesh Sodha, President Ddamas "It is our honour to associate with Mr. Roshan who always has believed in making film from the heart, which have instantly connected with the audiences. With creating this special line inspired by the film we wish to tap into new audiences." Ddamas boasts of traditional styles blended in a contemporary setting. Each piece underlined with elegance is designed to be a personal statement, crafted in a style thats out of the ordinary. Be it a mangalsutra, a pendant, a ring or a pair of earrings, each is set apart from the other, making it an exclusive piece of jewellery. A must-have for every woman, the Ddamas diamond jewellery is all set to make a splash in India.
