About Minar Jewellers
Minar Jewellers are fourth-generations of family jewellers specialising in Diamonds, Gold and Platinum jewellery. Our strengths are in making customised jewellery set with diamonds and a vibrant combination of coloured stones and gemstones. Minar prides itself on having an excellent mix of modern and traditional jewellery.
We have a proud history of jewellers within our family. We set this business up in 1993 in Tooting as this was becoming a landmark for shopping in London. Since then, we have created strong foundations of respect and trust within the community of Tooting and Wandsworth, and we wish to continue building the strong bonds that support this locations’ thriving environment. We have been the co-sponsors of a local Wandsworth charity called Share, which helps people with disabilities by delivering learning and wellbeing programmes. This is so that they may recognise their full potential and retrain themselves equipped with workplace skills. For more than 21 years we have been members of Tooting Business Network and help the community by organising the events such as Diwali, Eid and Christmas, which assist the local businesses to draw more customers and thereby flourish. By doing so, we encourage business membership to support the local community and make Wandsworth a better and more attractive place to live and work. Our director, Pravin Pattni, is the Deputy Chairman of the Tooting Business Network.
Our customers are an essential part of our business. They come to us with an idea, and thanks to our expertise and knowledge, we are able to transform their ideas into reality. Whether it is a symbol of love or a reason to remember,
THEY make Minar unforgettable.
THEIR stories define our company.
We take great pride in treating every person from staff to customer as part of the Minar family. We pride ourselves on customer service, and because of the depth of experience in the jewellery field, we get customers coming time and time again through our doors. Our director, Pravin Pattni, was the past Chairman of The National Association of Goldsmiths, which merged with the British Jewellers Association to become The National Association Of Jewellers (NAJ) which has a national membership of 1800 members. He was instrumental in helping these two jewellery bodies merge into one.
At Minar, we take great care in being professional in everything aspect of we do. Both our director and manager are qualified diamond graduates, and the director is also a qualified gemmologist. Our staff also receive training through the ‘Jewellery Education Training’ courses run by the NAJ. Having the right knowledge and expertise enables us to have a good understanding of what we sell, which means that we are able to explain to customers precisely what they are buying. This makes our customers feel more confident about choosing Minar.
