In a city like Bangalore, Jewellery stores strive hard to stock the latest designs every day to attract customers. While the old stores like C.Krishniah Chetty & Sons (CKC Sons) still hold the top position among the best Jewellery stores in Bangalore, new entrants have proven to be competitive enough by introducing the latest collections and trends ahead of the old players.
