About Us

 

Established in 1936 Guinea has the legacy of trust and purity. For over 80 years Guinea has been a jeweller who has cherished the importance of heritage, style and innovation. The brand Guinea was the brainchild of its founder Late Shri Lakhi Prasad. It was during the period of pre-independent India that he setup his first store in the bustling old market of Ashok Rajpath, Patna.

 

The Band Guinea soon became a household name in Patna. Every wedding in town or nearby had to have a piece of jewellery specifically crafted for the bride from the store. With an eye for detail and understanding a woman’s desire for seeking a design that has international sensibility and traditional ethos, Guinea jewellers soon expanded its footprints in other parts of the city. Guinea was one of the first jewellers to open a complete hallmarked store in 2009 in Boring Road, Patna. This store was opened by Sachin Gupta, grandson of Lakhi Prasad and son of Uday Gupta and now representing the 3rd generation of Guinea. Sachin finished his MBA from Leeds Business School, England in 2008 and came back to India to continue the legacy of his grandfather. He has successfully completed a diploma in Diamonds from Gemological Institute of America in 2012 and also completed a course in precious colour gemstones and pearl grading from the same institute in 2015 and is now successfully running the store.

 

As jewellers, Guinea has established a strong stamp of recognition, quality and credible reputation and their customers continue to be loyal to the brand for three generations now.
