About PureJewels by Bhanji Gokaldas

BHanji Gokaldas founder of PureJewels

PureJewels is devoted to the extraordinary pleasure of jewels: yesterday, today and tomorrow. This contemporary brand has its roots firmly in another time – and another world.

The story of PureJewels, by Bhanji Gokaldas, began in Nairobi, Kenya in 1950, with an indian jewellery designer and craftsman, Bhanji Gokaldas, who like his father and forefathers before him, made his name creating exquisite, bespoke fine artisan jewellery pieces for his clients. Twenty-five years later in 1975, he was tempted by the bright lights of London and together with his three sons Ramnik, Dinesh and Harish, brought their own distinctive sparkle to a new country.

Today, managed by the third generation, PureJewels is a fast growing, premier fine jewellery company specialising in design led diamonds, precious gems, pearls, platinum and gold fine jewellery. The product design ethos reflects its rich cultural heritage and brand journey, which traces its historic roots to India and east Africa. The design team at PureJewels take their inspiration from the east and interpret in a contemporary and modern way, giving way to beautifully considered and exotic collections.


PureJewels is a journey. We are a brand that aspires to be the best; the best designers, the best makers, the best experience. We take chances to push boundaries and to go against the norm. We are inspired by our heritage, by the countries that make up our DNA, and by the people who wear our jewellery. Our goal is to inspire others to express themselves.

We’re obsessed with creating intelligently designed details to evoke a connection to our jewellery and to allow people to create their own stories and celebrate journeys.

Our ambition is to take clients on an experiential journey of discovery – spanning cultures, designs, senses and ultimately, value.

We love to experiment with new ideas! Pop in and have tea with our design team and we will be more than happy to assist.
