Jewels Fiji - A Brief History
Passionate about jewellery, husband and wife duo Romil and Janki Patel founded Jewels Fiji - a specialist retailer, wholesaler and exporter of quality jewellery and exclusive giftware - in June 2006.
A year later in July 2007, the couple launched their first flagship store at the prestigious Port Denarau shopping complex on Denarau Island. Fiji's hottest tourism destination with some of the world's best resort brands, Denarau Island has over 1500 rooms across seven hotels including three Sheraton properties, the Hilton, Radisson and Sofitel, among others. Port Denarau has been labelled one of the most significant retail and commercial developments in the South Pacific region. An easy 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport, it serves as the gateway to Fiji's outlying islands, a key factor in Denarau Island's strong tourism growth and popularity. The Jewels Fiji store at Port Denarau is a 65-square-meter glass cube located in the heart of the shopping complex. Designed by an Italian architect, the store's world class design and ambiance make for a truly memorable shopping experience.
In May 2008, Jewels Fiji opened its second store, this time in Fiji's capital Suva. This store is strategically located at the entrance of MHCC, Fiji's first mall built to international standards. Designed by the Italian architect, Jewels Fiji's Suva flagship is the capital's most contemporary store for jewellery retail.
In August 2010, Jewels Fiji opened a third store in the heart of Nadi Town. Situated opposite Nadi's major tourist shopping outlets including Jack's of Fiji and ANZ Bank, the new store's location is ideal for extensive foot flow. Often referred to as the tourist town, Nadi Town is the hub of all major business activity within the city's boundaries. The new store's well-placed location also sees it catering to locals. Within the same outlet, Jewels Fiji has opened a state of the art Jewellery Repair Centre and Body Piercing Studio. The repair centre is the only one of its kind in Fiji. Fully equipped to handle repairs, it's well stocked with jewellery findings and tools. The company's Body Piercing Division is run to Australasian standards, using the best piercing gear to ensure a safe and pleasant experience for patrons.
