Bhindi Jewellers hosted their four day grand re-opening at their flagship location in Artesia, California [the] weekend [of April 10, 2016].
After one year of comprehensive renovations to expand the store from 7000 sq. ft. to 17,000 sq. ft., Bhindi now hosts a greater selection of their already impressive collection of fine diamond and gold jewelry, along with an accumulating repertoire of luxury timepieces.
The multi-million-dollar showroom was designed by Sat Garg, founder and creative director of Santa Monica based architecture and design firm Akar Studios. Garg designed the previous flagship Bhindi store and is currently overseeing the $300 million Terminal 2 LAX renovation.
The time and investment poured into this endeavor reflects the Bhindi commitment to quality and attention to detail. The new showroom is designed to complement their exquisite collections, as well as cater to their discerning clientele while creating a destination shopping experience in the process.
The first floor is dedicated to diamond jewelry and luxury timepieces. The redesigned showroom is home to in-shop boutiques for Rolex, Cartier, Panerai, IWC, Hublot and Tag Heuer, alongside counter collections of Nomos, Tudor and Chanel. In addition to housing over 400 Rolex timepieces, the Rolex shop-in-shop contains two private viewing rooms exclusively for their Rolex customers.
Bhindi also unveiled a brand new, specialty bridal room that displays its signature bridal jewelry collection and hundreds of engagement rings. The Bhindi bridal room was designed to make the engagement ring and wedding jewelry selection process special, memorable, and personalized for every bride and groom. Bhindi carries in its inventory a selection of .5 carat to 5 carat GIA certified diamonds and the diamonds are presented by a GIA graduate gemologist. Bhindi takes pride in educating its customers about diamonds through a highly interactive process in which each potential diamond is examined by the customer under the guidance of the GIA gemologist.
Driven by their commitment to deliver the highest quality product possible, Bhindi selected the Switzerland-based Obrist Interior AG to build the entire Rolex and diamond jewelry showroom. Obrist, founded in 1895, has established itself as one of the finest builders in the world; its resume includes boutiques for Tiffany and Mikimoto. In order to ensure exceptional quality, the entire Rolex and diamond departments were built in Switzerland and transported to California for installation by a team of expert carpenters based in Lucerne, Switzerland.
The second floor displays Bhindi's dazzling and extensive 22k gold and antique collection. The renovation enabled Bhindi to expand the breadth of their already impressive, market- leading selection by 150%. Bhindi Jewelers is extremely proud to announce the addition of two VIP viewing rooms dedicated to its gold clients. The private viewing rooms will allow Bhindi customers to sit, relax and allow the jewelry to be brought to them for a private and customized shopping experience.
Bhindi offers over 50,000 items in its collection and has revolutionized the market in Little India by introducing luxury couture collections to a diverse clientele. In the newly-renovated showroom, Bhindi Jewelers clients can be assured of an experience that reflects their exquisite jewelry. The sales consultants are highly trained and their insight reflects their experience, enabling a tailored experience for their diverse clientele. The completion of their latest showroom marks yet another step towards the company's goal of maintaining the highest standards of excellence in order to continue being a leading presence in the industry.
