GLENDALE, CA – The family-owned luxury jewelry store, Bhindi Jewelers, hosted a grand reopening titled, A Timeless Legacy, to celebrate their newly renovated showroom, here on December 14.
The red carpet event was held at the store located inside the Glendale Galleria. The event was attended by many of the family’s closest friends and celebrity clients including Mario Lopez (Access Hollywood), musician Shavarsh ‘Shavo’ Odadjian, and actor-singer Jaime Camil (Jane the Virgin).
Guests enjoyed champagne and hors d’oeuvres while buying jewelry and timepieces. They also took photos and gave interviews discussing their relationship with the Bhindi brand as well as the family and explored the store that is now a state-of-the-art boutique, meticulously designed with sophisticated men’s jewelry, and delicate, everyday jewelry for women.
Mario Lopez said, “These are great guys, my wife and I have been coming here for years and we’re appreciative they invited us.” Lopez also shared a message for the Bhindi family, “Keep up the great work. We will be coming here for years to come.”
The Glendale showroom has doubled its square footage and added an immersive Rolex space. Compared to its other locations, this Bhindi store primarily focuses on watches, with about a third of the space occupied by Rolex. Bhindi proudly became an Official Rolex Jeweler in 1998 and has a strong dedication to the success of this partnership. They have an in-house Rolex-trained watchmaker – an innovation that transformed them from a watch retailer to a full-service watch haven.
Bhindi Jewelers first put down roots in Artesia, CA’s “Little India”, in 1984 when Vinod, Jayent, and Dhanesh decided to move to Southern California. The family-owned business has a beautiful legacy of jewelry-making that dates back 26 generations.
The newest generation consists of the founding trio’s sons: Sanat, Ronil, Hitesh, Ketan, and Ashwin Bhindi, all of whom are certified gemologists from the Gemological Institute of America. As the next generation of jewelers, the team has been thoroughly trained in the traditional ways of jewelry design as well as the manufacturing of unique hand-crafted items, the owners said.
Asked at the Glendale showroom reopening how it feels to be here, Ashwin Bhindi responded, “It feels fantastic. It’s been a long journey, three years in the making and we can finally call it home.”
The festivities continued for two more evenings, where more guests were able to attend and celebrate the beautiful new space with the Bhindi Team. The Bhindi family also said it was a wonderful moment for them to “show their appreciation to their loyal customers.”
