UAE, September 2020: (Press Release) Dr. Aman Puri, Consul General of India in Dubai launched A Glittering Success Story, a coffee table book chronicling the history of Joyalukkas group. Dr. Puri received the first copy from Joy Alukkas, Chairman and Managing Director of Joyalukkas Group, at the Indian Consulate in Dubai. The book pays homage to Alukka Joseph Varghese, father of Joy Alukkas, who was the founder and inspiration behind the success of Joy Alukkas and the visionary who started it all in 1956.

Also present at the occasion were John Paul Alukkas, Executive Director of Joyalukkas Group; Jassim Mohamed Ibrahim Al Hasawi Al Tamimi; and Mustafa Mohammed Ahmed Al Shareef.

“We are celebrating our journey and our success through a coffee table book, which captures all the memorable moments of brand Joyalukkas since its inception,” said Joy Alukkas at the launch. “Our journey started in the middle east as a single jeweller store in the UAE in 1987. Today we have grown to become an international brand spread across 11 countries worldwide. It goes without saying that we are very proud of our accomplishments to date but at the same time we realise that these are part of our broader vision to ornament the world. Recording our achievements in this coffee table book has further energized us and strengthened our resolve to chase our dreams with renewed vigour and confidence.

“I am extremely happy that Dr. Puri agreed to receive the first copy. He is a diplomat with a vision who is willing to go the extra mile for the welfare of Indians living here. I am also pleased to say that today we have become a brand that is close to the hearts of more than two million customers across the world. With a strong presence spread over India, GCC, USA, UK, Singapore and Malaysia we are known for our legacy of trust, value and heritage. Joyalukkas is the preferred choice of jewellery lovers and this collectors’ edition is a celebration of that.”
