Inspiration

Deeply influenced by classical art & modern design, Moksh evokes an eclectic blend of art, architecture and a cherished craft from glorious Indian eras.

Iconic Indian motifs, a sensuality of volume, love for exceptional gems and a reverence for Indian art remains an eternal source of inspiration. Jewels by Moksh become precious renditions of its Indian roots, with every gemstone resonating a unique and storied provenance. Moksh creatively personifies every collection with a timeless elegance and its own unique touch.

Origins

Emanating from the same relentless quest for preciousness and distinction as its ancestry, Moksh honors a rich 75 year old heritage to this day.

Transcending from a legacy that began with a family of India's first bullion traders, one of the few who forayed into diamond manufacturing, trading and jewellery manufacturing, Moksh upholds qualities of ethical leadership, creativity and foresight as its lineage.

1930s - 1950s: The beginnings

The foundation of a rich legacy manifested from the intuition, knowledge and enthusiasm of Kirtilal Harilal Chokshi.

Belonging to a lineage of "Jhaveris" who were known for their passion to venture into business, Kirtilal was driven by an entrepreneurial legacy which led him to establish a gold trading company named Chokshi Kirtilal Jeshinglal in Bombay. The firm grew symbolic to trading in unique Elephant trade-marked gold coins and hallmarked gold bullion, with Kirtilal's profound integrity and exemplary work ethic adding to his growing repute. He soon became fondly known as 'Kaka'. Several successful years later, he won the distinction of being one of the top few government approved bullion dealers & treasured valuers, with the bullion federation posthumously awarding him for his contribution towards the industry.

1960s to 1980s: Originality & Entrepreneurial Instincts

Honouring the legacy of his father Kirtilal Chokshi, Tanvir Kumar Chokshi, established Tanvir Kumar & Co. in 1966, expanding the existing business into the diamond industry.

At a time when various other businesses dealt only in round diamonds, Tanvir Chokshi expanded his business to fancy shaped diamonds especially baguettes. With a particular penchant for baguettes and coloured diamonds, he gradually established a reputation of being the most reliable source of fancy shaped and fancy coloured diamonds. Catering to a growing and encouraging demand, the firm adopted its slogan - "No one does better baguettes, No one does baguettes better," with its unique collection of diamonds.

Tanvir Kumar & Co. flourished overseas, as it developed thriving business associations with leading Japanese Corporations. Kirtilal Chokshi's first cousin, Kamlesh Zaveri and his son Nailesh Chokshi joined the firm. Tanvir Kumar & Co. soon set up its diamond manufacturing units Milan Jewellers and Ami Gems, upholding its vision to fulfill demands of global markets.

1990s to 2010s: Growing Years & Expansion

Over the following years, growth and expansion of businesses propelled, as the Indian government granted major concessions.

Embracing the change of evolving times along with India's liberalization and its growing demands, Milan Choksi joined the business in 1998 and set up Eternity Jewels. Its first jewellery manufacturing unit in SEZ, Eternity Jewels presents eclectic baguette diamond jewellery for Japanese corporations. Meanwhile catering to the growing Indian jewellery market, Summit Jewellery was established, which manufactured a unique range of jewels to service this segment. With entrepreneurial risk-taking & expansion into new world markets, Tanvir Kumar & Co. continued to expand its business with a unique offering of gems and jewellery. During this time, Mihir Jhaveri, son of Kamlesh Jhaveri, joined the firm to diversify the diamond manufacturing units in Navasari, Visnagar & Surat.
