selects International Gem Tower as its headquarters
First Delhi-based purchaser at IGT cites "huge U.S. market" for handmade Indian jewelry
Shimmer, an entity of Rajwarah Jewellers, announced today its decision to establish a USA headquarters in the International Gem Tower, currently under construction in New York's Diamond District. Renu Sharma, CEO of Shimmer, was drawn to the Tower because of its exclusivity, amenities and the building's designation as a Foreign Trade Zone. Through her travels and conversations with IGT representatives abroad, Sharma decided that, as New York's only modern tower dedicated to the global jewelry trade, the Gem Tower is the perfect location to launch her North American expansion. Shimmer, whose success is based upon its motto of personalization and excellence, specializes in handcrafted jewelry. "Our aim is to ensure all our precious customers are provided with quality, consistency and personal unbiased attention locally and now abroad as well," explained Sharma.
A division of Rajwarah Jewellers Private Limited, Shimmer has carved a niche for itself as a meticulous designer, manufacturer and crafter of precious metal and stone. Shimmer's handcrafted jewelry line is designed based on the age-old heritage and expertise of master Indian craftsmen. Providing its customers with a wide variety of gold and diamond jewelry for over twenty years, Shimmer uses only certified and hallmarked diamonds, colored stones and the timeless artisanship and detail for which India is famous.
