About Us at Navneet Gems
Suresh Agarwal, founded Navneet Gems And Minerals in the year 1993. Born as the eldest son to the family and grown with responsibilities, Suresh started working with his father at the age of 19, at his own office in India working with all types of gemstones. Working under his father’s guidance, Mr. Om Prakash Agarwal, he learned a lot from seeing the rough materials, to selection, to buying and to all the other basics. Back then in the 80’s, our company used to import rough directly from the mining companies and would manufacture it in Jaipur and export to different parts of the world, at excellent growth opportunities.
Then Suresh Agarwal traveled to different parts of the world, in search of good business opportunities. First he landed in the United States (the big hub and eventual consumer market of Jewellery), then Europe, and then Japan but he settled in Germany where business in those days was booming due to strong governance and great economy. Also Germany used to at one time and to some extent still is, one of the most important Gemstone cutting hubs. German’s are still exhibiting in the major Gem Shows today where buyers of their fine Gemstone cutting go nowhere else but to them.
After a few years of excellent growth he planned to shift to Bangkok where he could monitor his business and finally settle down somewhere close to his home country of India. The 59 story building adds a chapter to how this building, The Jewelry Trade Center, has been the home to Navneet Gems and Minerals for over 10 years now.
Since then he never looked back and now Navneet Gems & Minerals exhibits at six jewellery shows a year, but it covers our major markets and we are able to give quality time to our customers who are rest assured at having us as their supplier for all types of Gemstones.
Navneet Agarwal, the son of Suresh, joined the business officially in 2012. Being connected to the business since he was born (the father named the company after him), his passion built in him as a Kid when he used to take part in the local Gem Shows. Seeing this passion, the father brought his eldest son into this business to carry on the legacy of Navneet Gems. Since then Navneet has not only done various Gem courses around Bangkok, but also completed successfully a full time course at GIA to finally finish as a Graduate Gemologist at GIA. Being a Gemologist, it helps him to understand the internal world of the Gemstones, their Origins, Treatments and customer satisfaction to a different level. Doing it from the Carlsbad Campus in the USA, helped him to see first hand, the American market of Gems and Jewelry.
