Satyug Gold is opening seven stores in cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Pune, Chandigarh and Ludhiana. These outlets will feature regular collections of jewellery designed by the actress.

`We have entered into long-term contracts with gold mines from all over the world and own two licensed refineries in India. Some of the margins we make in our gold business will be passed on to our customers in the form of discounts.` `This is possible because we are a complete mine-to- refinery-to-customer set up,` Shilpa Shetty told reporters here.

Satyug owns 42 per cent stake in AuPtAg Refinery and 50 per cent in Royal Refinery, both located in Navi Mumbai. They have refining capacity of 18 tonne and 150 tonne per annum, respectively, she said.


On the occasion, Shilpa Shetty launched 12 creatively designed evil eye charms made in 22 karat gold.

The company has also launched its own minted 24 karat (999) purity gold coins in different sizes. The coins will be apt for gifting, Shetty said.

Satyug is also launching, for a limited period and in association with the Indian Bullion & Jewellers Association (IBJA), a scheme that will offer patrons chance to purchase pure 24 karat gold at up to 37 per cent off the prevailing market rates linked to various delivery tenures.

Satyug has inked a five-year deal with the association worth Rs 25 crore as royalty payment, said IBJA President Mohit Kamboj.
