Our Founders

Ritesh Badaya & Prashant Sharma

Ritesh Badaya and Prashant Sharma - Co-founders of Nirvana Gems and Jewels, is an entrepreneur duo who met in a Pune college while pursuing a language course in German.

If a friendship could lay the foundation of a profitable business, Jaipur-based Nirvana Gems and Jewels set the perfect precedent of how trust and understanding could pave the way for a success story.

When Ritesh went for college in 2003 he started exploring the market of Pune and noticed the potential for an authentic jewelry brand like the one his family was running.

So as the idea took seed in Ritesh’s mind, he considered his options and discussed it with Prashant.

The two friends again parted ways to go their separate paths, until Ritesh approached Prashant with a proposal to launch a heritage jewellery brand. Given their history and bonding, it wasn’t long before Prashant decided to join Ritesh. The duo launched the company in December 2012, but officially started operations in 2013 by dealing in jewellery made of gemstones, gold and silver. And, since then there has been no looking back.

After a lot of challenges in their journey they have taken Nirvana Gems and Jewels to the top in a short span of time.
