He says that Khajanchi Jewels Palace is India’s pre-eminent jewellery house based in Bikaner, crafting the most exquisite and stupendously beautiful designs. It is also a place where one can find the finest original pieces dating back to the Mughal Empire. Mudit is the fifth-generation creative director of the 175-year-old jewellery business and is the grandson of Art collector, Politician & Trendsetting jeweller Motichand Khajanchi who was born into a family of jewellers and whose patrons included the royal family of Bikaner.

He invited the finest artists and craftsmen from all over India for building the heritage city, and that is how The Khajanchi was then appointed as the treasurer. Initially, they operated within the walls of the Junagarh Fort but in 1925 moved to some land outside the palace and established a Khajanchi market on the site where it remains to the present day on K.E.M Road, following the city’s expansion.
In 1972 Khajanchi opened a jewellery and handicrafts store in Bombay, where prominent personalities and the Indian royalty became the brand’s exquisite collectors.
