Think Pure social welfare foundation

Think Pure social welfare foundation
Think Pure deeps down to the conviction of Dajikaka who was a visionary and whose relentless efforts lead to the firm establishment and expansion of the family business. Purity is the most significant aspect of the Think Pure convictions. Purity stands for the honest and pure dealings in the business where the customer is convinced of the purity of gold and buys the product with full faith. His experience in the business has shaped his convictions and purity forms the basis of the business of PNG Jewellers.

I often say at our Association meetings that just one jewellery sending a customer away with substandard gold can bring disrepute to the whole business. The honest route in business is tough, as against the get-rich-quick route. Lasting success can only be gained through genuine goods, good service and promptitude.
People over Profit is another most significant aspect of the Think Pure convictions. Although profit is the prime aim in business, but there are times when one needs to go out of way. This is done many a time with providing jewellery to the customers when there is wedding or an engagement ceremony. Though a made to order jewellery takes ten to fifteen days to be delivered but on this special occasions PNG have stretched their service by delivering on time, either by making a new piece or by modifying a piece of jewellery from the stock. Here the person is put ahead over profit and this is what makes PNG stand out over time and win the trust and loyalty of the customer.
