The legacy of Motiwala dates back to late 19th century when the first generation of the Motiwala lineage established himself to become one of the most sought after Basra Pearl and Diamond dealers in the world, hence the surname "Motiwala". The anchor of the Motiwala generation, A.L Motiwala was known all over the world for his priceless works of art that attracted the British as well as the Rajas and Maharajas of the Princely states in India.
The business in India set sail with the 3rd generation of the Motiwalas, i.e. A.K Motiwala who played a prime role in setting up the family's first store along with his son A.S Motiwala who created a strong footprint of the Motiwalas on the diamond business in India. This store was Bandra’s first jewelry retail outlet and was set up on 6th January 1983.
With an aim to push the business further and meet the increasing demand for fine masterpieces in India and worldwide, Ashraf Motiwala, the 5th generation of the Motiwalas set up the Flagship Store that looks to re-invents the art of creating world-class jewelry, without hampering the family’s business ethics.
A.S Motiwala is a brand for people who have an eye for priceless jewelry with exceptional quality.
