About Us

With over 80 years of rich unparalleled traditional experience in designing real pearls and diamond-studded jewellery, “Lagu Bandhu” is a name characterized by wide variety, excellent quality and maximum reliability.

What started as a family business a few decades ago has blossomed into a well-organized setup with its exclusive showrooms at Mumbai (Dadar and Borivali), Thane, Dombivali, Pune (Karve Road and Aundh), Goa, and Oklahoma, USA.

“Lagu Bandhu” has been the trusted house of authentic Bhagya Ratnas (Navagraha stones) which now come with a Laboratory Test Certificate (optional) which becomes a value addition! We are offering you exclusive custom-made jewellery to suit your specific needs, unlike branded jewellery in which you can get only mass produced designs.

At Lagu Bandhu you will find exclusive jewellery of Diamond, Pearl and Precious Stones. You can choose from the best of traditional and contemporary Pearl jewellery. Vibrant and colourful jewellery made out of Emeralds, Rubies, and Corals individually or in combination with pearls or diamonds can add wide range of variety to the traditional Maharashtrian Jewellery.

Since 1936, 'Lagu Bandhu' has been a name synonymous with Pearl Jewellery and no surprises there! Being one of the pioneers of the Japanese Cultured (Akoya) pearl trade in India, we have been the preferred jeweller to thousands of families and to more than 3 generations within a family. And now famous for fine Diamond Jewellery!
