Our

Legacy. Since 1654.

M

adhya Pradesh is where the Indian Diamond Mines (Panna Mines) are located, from where the world famous Koh-i-noor Diamond was first reported in 1304 AD in the ownership of Mahlak Deo, the Raja of Malwa and also the pair of ‘Indore Pears’ which were once part of the collections of the Holkars, Maharajas of Indore in Malwa region of the then Ratnapuri of Madhya Bharat, now Madhya Pradesh.


While serving in a high position in the court of his highness, Rajkumar Ratan Singhji of Jodhpur appointed Mehta Kishandasji in 1654 AD and gifted 32 parganas in the Malwa region. After this the family never looked back and went on to conquer even the so called “The Great Undefeatable Chittorh Fort” and built a Jain temple and bavdi. It stands testimony till today. While fighting in a battle in Mewar in 1752 AD, Raja Takht Singhji laid down his life like a hero and his horse brought the pagdi back to the sprawling haveli in Bibrod, near Ratlam, and breathed its last. His queen performed sati there. In memory of this a Hero stone was erected, after which the Mehta family began to revere her as their Kuldevi. The Land of Karaikudi (Chettinadu) and Malwa Region of Madhya Pradesh have one thing in common i.e., ‘Diamonds’. The Nattukottai Nagarathar called as the chettiars, who were known to be shrewd in business and great philanthropists, were one of the very rare communities who knew the value of Diamonds apart from the then Maharajas of India. Mehta Sardul Singhji, son of Mehta Kushal Singhji and an expert in the Navratnas, came to Chettinadu to buy

precious stones from the chettiars who were returning from the then Burma, Ceylon, Vietnam and Cambodia. His torch was carried forward by his son Maganlalji Mehta, whose years of dedicated hard work, shrewd business acumen and in depth knowledge of diamonds made Maganlal Mehta & Sons a very well known entity in the diamond industry in the whole of Tamil Nadu for its ethical practices and trustworthiness. His grandson Rohitji Mehta started a Listed Limited Company and came out successfully with an Initial Public Offering in the name and style of Karaikudi Maganlal Mehta Corporation Limited (KMCL Diamonds) in Chennai. Sardul Singhji’s great grandson Jagrat Mehta BE (Civil), MBA, is extensively involved in building and safeguarding the rich legacy handed to him. We have a big advantage in terms of prices over others, because of our being in the diamond trade for the last 75 years and winning the trust and loyalty of our honoured customers who are spread throughout the world of Indian Diaspora thereby creating the “Bond of a Lifetime”.

We are happy, I would say proud, to know the Mehta family for buying our diamond jewellery, not because of affinity but because of the advice they give us on what/when/which to buy and their hospitality is worth experiencing. Visit them and they will make you feel at home. I would say diamonds are forever worth buying only at Karaikudi Magalal Mehta Corporation Limited.

Anyone who has known Karaikudi Chettiar will tell you that no Chettiar wedding is complete without diamond jewellery. Chettiars have had an age old affair with diamonds; through centuries of experience in buying diamonds, they have a keen eye for good diamonds and are quick to spot competitive pricing. We as a family have been buying diamonds from the Karaikudi Maganlal Mehta family for over three generations now. What started off as a single purchase bloomed into a long association due to the trustworthiness and customer focus exhibited by their family! They have a varied selection of quality diamonds and jewellery design. The diamonds are always dhosham free and found to bring happiness and prosperity to the family.

The KMC family is very warm and friendly and buying jewellery from them has always been a pleasant experience. It is said that diamonds are forever. In our case, the friendship that has grown between the two families over the years has already stood the test of time and will last forever.
