The Industry Stalwarts Award is a testimony to Shree Ramkrishna Exports’ futuristic vision supported by the encouraging teamwork from his company. One of the early initiatives of the company included the transformation journey to take the diamond inventory online. SRK is the first in the global industry to launch mobile e-commerce for diamonds in 2010; and since then, the company has only evolved the customer experiences. In 2012, SRK developed a Design canvas- a tool for designers to create designs online and select diamonds from its inventory. Today, over 90% of diamond sales at SRK happens online. And incidentally this month, SRK happens to celebrate 15 years of its innovation in the field of e-commerce.
"Diamond is God for Us. This guiding principle ensures that every diamond receives the best treatment. While we go to great lengths to source the finest quality diamonds, ethically and responsibly, from reputable suppliers worldwide, our selection process ensures that each diamond meets the highest standards of clarity, cut, color, and carat weight. To complement the divine essence of our diamonds, we are equally passionate about providing an unparalleled buying experience for our clients. Therefore, we have invested heavily in creating the best e-commerce platform for our exquisite and pure diamonds”, adds Shreyans.
