The Indian market was witnessing an accelerated shift

from viewing jewellery as an investment to regarding it as aesthetically appealing ornaments. The focus had shifted from content to design. The younger generation was looking at trendy, contemporary jewellery and clearly avoiding heavy, traditional gold jewellery. The consumer wanted a wider selection at a single convenient location and expected an international shopping experience. The Indian consumer was willing to experiment with new designs.

TANISHQ: Tanishq worked hard on a two-pronged brand-buildingstrategy:cultivate trust by educating customers about the unethical practices in the business and change the perception of jewellery as a high-priced purchase

To increase its marketshare, Tanishq formulated astrategy for luring people:provide a point of differentiation in a highly commoditized category project Tanishq as an unimpeachable mark of trust

TANISHQ contd One way to create differentiation was through design Tanishq set up a seven member in-house design team Tanishq decided to focus on quality control:it introduced caratmeters which showed the purity of gold

In November 2002, Tanishq introduced a new collectionof jewellery called 'Lightweights. It also focused on small town markets

Branded jewellery players will continue to face lot ofcompetition from local jewellers. Besides the major brands several regional players have opened branches to leverage the trust and reputation that they have built up over the years Most of the branded jewellery players in India focused on yellow gold Few of them experimented with the pink and white forms of gold. Some of the players also used diamonds and platinum, which appear to have a good future in the Indian jewellery market.
