Surendra Manilal Mehta, who made the Mehtas a household name in South India, is the patriarch of Mehta Jewellery even today. With a wealth of experience and goodwill earned over close to 75 years in business, Surendrabhai was renowned for his expertise in diamond selection. He had set the standards in the diamond trade, standards which others strive to emulate. He has nurtured the values and the reputation which have made the Mehtas famous today. The Mehtas strive to echo his passion, love and expertise into every aspect of our craft.

After five decades of heading the diamond business at Bapalal & Co., Surendra Mehta established Mehta Jewellery as an independent brand in 1991, with his elder son, Tushaar, his youngest brother, Naresh, and his younger son, Abhay.



A Graduate Gemologist from GIA (USA), Abhay began his career in 1981, learning to brute and cut diamonds, and handcraft them into fine jewellery. He completed his Executive Management Programme from IIM, Bangalore. His unique talent lies in the art of identifying doshams or black spots, a skill he learnt from his father, Surendra Mehta. Abhay is proud of being amongst the earliest to achieve the ISO certification for Quality and Design in 2003 for Mehta Jewellery.

The active management of Mehta Jewellery today rests on Abhay’s able shoulders. Drawing from his heritage, he brings sincerity, creativity and a passion for excellence to every product.

Abhay Mehta strongly believes in the words of John Ruskin – When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.
