OUR HISTORY & DNA

RAF, located in New York City, belongs to a family that has been associated with fine quality gemstones and jewelry for over a century.  Beginning in the 1800s, the foundation was laid in Delhi with their forefathers firm — Khoobchand Inderchand. The company was proudly acclaimed for trading in fine quality natural gemstones from prominent gem sources such as Kashmir,  Burma, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), and Colombia.

By the late 20th century, the family migrated to Jaipur and the firm's expertise in color gemstones and manufacturing grew and earned its members admiration, trust and doors for the next generation to further expand the family footprint in the West throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

In 1990, the sixth generation and founders of RAF established a permanent foothold in the United States. Their passion for acquiring and offering beautiful, rare, and exceptional jewels allowed the family to carry forward the legacy, knowledge, and the fountain of trust to the doorsteps of kingdoms, renowned jewelers, and private clients. For the family, it is more than just a business - it's their heritage.

The founders of RAF are thankful to have been inherited such traits and proud to carry froward the work bred by our ancestors.
