NAC - Keeping pace with tradition
NAC's story began in 1973, when N. Anjaneyulu Chetty set up a small jewelry store in Chennai. Through sheer hard work and a superior understanding of jewelry design and prevalent tastes, NAC soon forged trustworthy relationships with all its customers. Six years later, Mr. Chetty was joined by his son, N. Anantha Padmanabhan, who expanded this treasure chest by introducing new ranges of jewelry.
In 1990, we launched a plush new showroom at Mylapore, Chennai; the first of many bright changes. Alongside this, we created a separate entity, NAC & Co. to showcase our silverware collections. Further expanding our range of gold and diamond jewellery, we grew to cater to more and more clients, both old and new. In 1998, the company had the honor of celebrating a dazzling milestone: our silver jubilee.
A known fact among our stakeholders, it is our credibility and customer care that sets us apart from our competitors. We pride ourselves on the purity of the materials we use, the quality of our finished products and our mutually-beneficial relationships with customers.
Today, we at NAC offer jewellery for all occasions and reasons, from gold jewellery exclusively for marriages and festivals to everyday wear. We also offer a dazzling range of diamond, ruby and emerald jewellery, tastefully crafted with small intricate patterns and dainty aesthetic styles.
