Sawai Jai Singh Ji & his renaissance personality helped Jaipur to emerge as a city with many facets. A man of highly refined taste, it was he who invited the Suranas to Jaipur in acknowledgement of the family's dedication to the kundan art form and their ability in designing timeless pieces of art. As time passed, the city emerged as an unrivalled centre for the Gem & Jewellery Industry, exhibiting artistic vigour and proficiency. As for the Suranas, they became pioneers of the craft, and are today regarded as creators of the finest jewellery.
PRAKASH CHAND SURANA
The flag-bearer of Kundan and Meenakari jewellery, Prakash Surana, with his innovative and creative mind, took up the onus of popularising this perishing craft. With a knack for analysing precious stones, he teamed up with master artisans to revive the glory and magic of Jadau. "For the art of manufacturing jewellery, I could not find a better guru than my father, Late Rajmal Ji Surana. He taught me the intricacies and the principles of the jewellery trade.”
Raised in the Pink City of India, Pracheer upholds his father's legacy as the head of the company. Belonging to the sixth generation of royal jewellers, he carries the trade in his blood and has kept the long established name of the brand alive. Pracheer keeps a low profile while building the business organically, using trust and quality of workmanship as its cornerstones. The knowledge he gained under his father has been the most inspiring. Driven by passion and deep love for jewellery, Pracheer travels across the globe, and draws inspiration from his journeys to blend traditional Indian with the global modern.
With 24 years of experience in this field now, Sonal happened to come into jewellery designing by chance, only to realise she was born for it. She was introduced to the world of jewellery-making soon after marriage, and has not looked back since. She continues to deepen her understanding of the family profession, and her focus lies mainly in creating light-weight and artistic designs that can easily be bought by a younger generation of customers.
“As the business enters its Seventh generation, we see ourselves as caretakers of the Suranas Legacy for future generations - maintaining our reputation as the most trusted Indian fine jeweller, and doing our very best to excel at every stage of the journey.”
