He could have joined the suc­cess­ful busi­ness that his grand­fa­ther, Tarsem Lal Tal­war es­tab­lished in 1954 in Chandigarh.

SMART IDEAS Af­ter com­plet­ing his ed­u­ca­tion abroad, he wanted to meta­mor­phose the way busi­ness was be­ing done by Tal­war Jewellers. I wanted cer­tain sys­tems in place, which meant that work could go on with­out con­stant pres­ence/ over­look­ing of own­ers. “In or­der to have an edge, it is im­por­tant that you of­fer what nobody else does. Be­sides de­sign­ing our­selves, we also con­stantly col­lab­o­rate with other design houses for cut­ting edge pat­terns for or­na­ments,” he says.
