The foundation stone of present-day Amayra Jewellery was laid down over four decades ago by Mr. Rajendra Bagrecha. Born in Sujangarh - a small town in Rajasthan, India - Mr. Bagrecha envisioned a future as a diamond dealer and set forth to pursue his dreams in Kolkata. With humble beginnings, Mr Bagrecha persevered through every challenge and soon moved to New Delhi. Over the years, he established himself as a prominent personage in the industry, soon making the Bagrecha name a legacy. From 1970 till date, Bagrecha Gems has garnered an impressive reputation in the Gems and Jewellery industry.
A health-conscious individual, Mr Bagrecha plays badminton quite often and also finds his muse in martial arts.
Surrounded by diamonds and gems from a young age, Mr. Sanjay Bagrecha, the second generation of Bagrecha family into the gems and jewellery industry, diversified from diamond trading into retail to concentrate on his passion for design and hence AMAYRA was created.
Sanjay has lived in London and spent considerable time at auction houses like Christie's, Sotheby’s and Bonhams. From the diamantaires accords of Israel to Antwerp, Sanjay has been exposed to many international bodies that enriched his experience in the diamond business.
Outside the world of gems and glitter, Sanjay loves to dedicate his time to fitness. He is a yoga enthusiast and globetrotting seems to have remained a forever love for him.
