Sr Bachchan's gift to Ash's baby: gold ring made in Rajkot

Kruti Jewellers from Rajkot will design the 4-gram gold ring for the celebrity.

Even as the Indian film industry prepares to shower gifts on the new born in the Bachchan family, the baby's grand father Amitabh Bachchan is getting a special gold ring designed from the tier-II town of Rajkot in Gujarat.

On his part, city-based jeweller Pankaj Kansara is elated as well as already busy in designing the gold ring for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's daughter. "We have received an order from a firm in the jewellery business, RKR Creations. We have been asked to deliver the ring within a week," said Kansara who had earlier designed a silver miniature guitar for the senior Bachchan.

What's more, weighing just about 3-4 grams, the gold ring will be fully hand made. "We will not use any kind of machine for it. This will not be any ordinary gold ring but it will describe Bachchan family's value and power," said Kansara. And as a gesture, Kansara is planning not to charge the superstar for the ring. "I will not take any making or designing charges for the ring. It will be gift from me to Baby B," he added.

Rajkot-based Kruti Jewellers is very popular for its exclusive jewellery work for celebrities.

Earlier, Kruti Jewellers made a gold ring for Sachin Tendulkar. About 25 years ago, Kansara had also designed a three feet long guitar for Amitabh Bachchan, apart from gifting an archery set to BJP leader L. K. Advani.

It may also be noted here that Kansara alongwith his brother Kishore Kansara had designed a four kg gold love letter for a Mumbai-based client which earned him a nomination in Guinness World Records. The two Kansara brothers are a fourth generation goldsmiths and make only hand crafted jewellery and gift items.
