Creating History at Inception!
Most companies make their mark on history when they are well into their maturity.
Few if any create a trail blazing historical precedent right from the beginning.

According to the book "Diamonds from India", the earliest organized attempt at diamond processing in the country began in 1949, when our founder, H.B. Shah and his associates set up India's first modern diamond processing factory. With a foresight that speaks of his vision, he brought across a Belgian Master cutter as a technical adviser to teach the trade to the Indian workers!
Today, that humble beginning has resulted in a burgeoning Indian dominance in the Diamond Trade. Diamond exports from India now amounts to more than US$ 8 Billion annually!


At H.B. Shah Pvt. Ltd., we have continually built up on this heritage.
  • In 1987, the Govt. of India under the aegis of the Gem & Jewelry Export Promotion Council awarded Shri. P.B Shah, (Click here) for his pioneering efforts to promote the Diamond trade in India.
  • Our present Chairman Shri Shrish P. Shah has been in the diamond business since 1960 and has served the industry by his active participation in various trade bodies and philanthropic activities.
  • Today under the management of Shri. Asim S. Shah the company is actively involved in Loose Diamonds, Customized Jewellery, Industrial Diamonds and Software Development

Trust & Service that Spans Four Generations!
