"This foray is a strategic portfolio choice that allows us to tap into new growth engines and expand our presence in the vibrant Indian consumer landscape,” said Kumar Mangalam Birla, chairman, Aditya Birla Group.

"This venture will capitalise on Aditya Birla Group's deep expertise in lifestyle retail and nuanced understanding of consumer preferences,” he added.

The group will make its foray into a segment that is already crowded with well-known brands such as the Tata-owned Tanishq and CaratLane, Kalyan Jewellers and Reliance Jewels.

India is the second-largest market for gold jewellery in the world. In 2023, the market size was around $76.8 billion (₹6.34 lakh crore), and it is likely to grow to $88.7 billion (₹7.33 lakh crore) by 2026.
