About Battulal Jewellers: In the early 1900’s, Lala Battulal Sarraf established Battulal Jewellers on the foothills of Kumaon and Garhwal in a small town Ramnagar (Corbett City). The unique and traditional designs that we see today reflects the hard work at early stage. As the business grew in the 1950’s Battulal Jewellers became the only trusted jewellery destination for the people of Uttarakhand. Later in 1960’s, Battulal Jewellers became supplier to the sunars from small towns of Uttarakhand. As the quality, trust and excellence was maintained by us. Therefore, in the late 80’s, we had customers coming since generations. Today, we have our outlet in Noida, which is successfully delivering the same quality at the same prices as in Ramnagar, which reflects the ethical contribution to the business. As the name grew so enormously over the period of time, people started using ‘Battulal’ as prefix.
