NJA 2014 – 15 has been a very memorable one for Kirtilals. A platform like NJA recognises renowned and upcoming brands for their contribution to the industry and gives a feeling of achievement, which is a huge encouragement.Design and craftsmanship play important role for both retailers and consumers. They showcase the creativity and innovation and make the jewellery interesting for a consumer. Hence this is most looked forward to.
Coming from a prominent body like GJF, an award at NJA is a prominent award night and brings the industry players together on one platform. It gives an opportunity to appreciate the immense talent in the industry and also provides a platform to discuss on the recent developments in the industry The award inspires and motivates more and more brands to participate. Adding interesting award categories to recognise hidden talents of the industry would be great. (Some categories which you may consider - Best Karigar across each art form in jewellery, Best diamond quality used etc.)

Our experience with NJA has been very good so far. Awards like this make us feel proud of the work we do.All categories are interesting as one gets to see a lot of new work from the industry starting from the smallest of the ring to the largest of the necklaces. Also, recognition to students in the Students Award categories is much appreciable as they are the future of our industry.
Recognition of genuine talent from across India is one of the biggest benefit of NJA. Awards like these are also moral boosters for all of us in the jewellery industry to keep improving our design and manufacturing skills and to produce products that wow the worldI expect another great selection of products to choose from and may the best talent win.
