Silver Jewellery by Silverstreak

Hippocrates, the "father of modern medicine” held the belief that silver had beneficial healing and anti-disease properties. The belief in the ability of silver to purify has been ratified by scientists, and its beauty as jewellery has been lauded by countless generations of buyers. Vishal Chhabria and his venture “Silverstreak” have been promoting the aesthetic qualities of silver since 2003 with a great degree of success.

He explained more on the nuances of silver jewellery and the shape that his entrepreneurial dreams and visions will take in the coming future to Yourstory…

What kind of jewellery does Silverstreak offer? Are you into a specific kind of jewellery?

Silverstreak is a silver jewellery store which caters to silver jewellery for everyone. It was started in 2003 by Vishal Chhabria and now with 2 branches in Mumbai - One in Khar and the other in Bandrs. We have a range of jewellery from casual work wear, funky jewellery for the fun loving to party and formal occasion wear. The range extends from plain silver to antique jewellery to semi-precious stones, gold plated, zircons and marcasite. The jewellery is well crafted and finely finished. Also available different collections from different jewellery designers. Its the right place if your looking for something different and out of the ordinary.

Why do people prefer to shop for silver jewellery from Silverstreak?

Vishal Chhabria

People from all over Mumbai and from different parts of India and the world come to Silverstreak to buy something different in silver jewellery. We have loyal customers abroad too who visit Silverstreak whenever in Mumbai.What make buying silver from Silverstreak a more fulfilling experience than others?

The designs available at Silverstreak are personally selected or designed and made. The purity of silver is guaranteed and there is no compromise in the finish of the jewellery. We launch a design, make samples and check the response and then expand the range. The result is unique, well crafted wearable pieces of jewellery.

Do you have an online model as well for your products?

We are planning to launch our website very soon so that people from all over the world can have access to jewellery from Silverstreak.

What has been the biggest challenge for you as an entrepreneur?

The biggest challenge was to set up a stand alone Silver jewellery outlet in a by lane in Khar and start from scratch in Mumbai.

What decision do you feel could have been better executed in hindsight?

I compromised on the location and took a shop in the lane rather than on the main road due to limited funds. My growth would have been much faster if i were located on the main road.
