Becoming Riffa Jewellers
We've loved every minute of our journey
Riffa Jewellers is a family owned and operated business that has been a part of the goldsmith industry since 1986. It began with its first ever store located in the city of Riffa, hence its name, in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Chhaganlal Khimji, the founder and owner of the business, was a highly reputed and skilled goldsmith. He built the company from the ground up and it was his passion, skill and keen business sense that lead to the success of the business. He went on to further establish Riffa Jewellers with a store in Bahrain's infamous Gold Souq district, located in the capital city of Manama.
The company was eventually passed on to his son, Girish, who carried on his father's legacy and expanded the business by taking part in gold exhibitions across GCC countries such as Muscat, Jordan and Dubai. However, he had ideas to take the business even further.
The Kingdom of Bahrain, an island nation in the Persian Gulf region, is well known for its gold and pearl industry. Its culture is steeped with traditions of wearing highly ornate gold jewellery that are usually studded with Bahraini seed pearls and other precious gemstones
Our designs are carefully and skillfully handcrafted, and inspired by the rich Arabian culture of Bahrain. We also take inspiration from Indian and contemporary western designs to provide you with a diverse collection.
Expanding our business overseas was a long time dream of ours. Establishing our business in Perth was a great achievement for us, giving us the opportunity to share our unique designs and participating in community events such as EveryWoman Expo and Diwali Mela to name a few.
At Riffa Jewellers, our aim has always been to provide our customers with a premium shopping experience with our unique and diverse range of 21ct and 22ct gold jewellery.
