He is the first director of sales and marketing for the Hong Kong-based company, which specializes in fancy colors.
Rahul Jauhari is now the director of sales and marketing at Kunming Diamonds, a Hong Kong-based company specializing in fancy colored diamonds.
It is a new position for the company.
Jauhari has been in the industry for 17 years, working for Gitanjali Gems, HRD Antwerp and, most recently, spending nearly five years as senior vice president of global sales and marketing for Star Rays.
His areas of expertise include business development, branding, and strategy. Jauhari also is focused on sustainability and traceability, which he sees as key to the future of the diamond industry.
“Natural fancy colored diamonds are truly the epitome of luxury; the ultimate indulgence one can possess,” he said. “I am very excited about the opportunities and challenges that this new role offers.”
Ajay Maheshwari established Kunming Diamonds in 1987 and still serves as its managing director.
The company is an authorized partner of Argyle Pink Diamonds, and a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council, the Natural Color Diamond Association, and the Fancy Color Research Foundation.
Commenting on Jauhari’s appointment, Maheshwari said, “The true potential of natural fancy colored diamonds remains untapped.
“We at Kunming Diamonds are committed to making this category the engine for future growth with the help of innovative marketing and technology. We look forward to having Rahul as part of the Kunming family.”
