Continuing his ancestral trade, Mr. Mahesh Man Shrestha, a third generation jeweller, at the age of 19, founded Gahana Griha in 1986. After refusing to join an already established family business and securing a minimal loan from his father, Mr. Gopal Man Shrestha, Gahana Griha was born.
On October 1986, Pancha Narayan, our first patron and still a close friend of the family, bought a 1-tola silver chain and we were in business.
Over the years, Gahana Griha has been proud to cater to a diverse range of patrons from royalty to community leaders, eminent media and pop culture personalities to respected elders of the society, and young bride-to-be’s to retired army generals. Most of all, we continue to be honored to be a part of the pivotal emotional moments in our customer’s lives.
Gahana Griha is a jewelry house built with the foundations of ambition, a desire to stand apart, and a simple quest to serve our patrons. A master of innovation and the ‘new’ and a slave to heritage and tradition, our raison d’etre is to be a beautiful part of our customer’s lives.
We have grown from humble beginnings of a 100 square feet store to earning the trust of hundreds of thousands of customers from all over the country. Creating emotional and financial value, delivering exclusivity, and crafting beautiful products has been instrumental in winning the affection of our patrons.
Luxurious, unique, and accessible has been the defining features of the Gahana Griha product. Unapologetically extravagant at times and nuanced and subtle at others, we consistently push our style horizons.
From working with paper thin 24 carat gold for exquisite hand-made traditional Nepali jewelry to working with state-of-the-art machinery and tools for contemporary diamond jewelry, our karighars [craftsmen] are marrying the craft of their ancestors with the latest in jewelry technology.
