Our Legacy

It all began with the Late Burde Sadananda Kamath a wise travelling merchant in the early 1900’s. His business took him across Malnad region in South India and in 1935 he established the first jewellery store in the temple town of Udupi. To this very day, decades later Abaran continues to uphold the legacy of beauty and craftsmanship and has grown to be one of India’s premium jewellery houses.
