It was in 1964 that G. Rajendran founded GRT Jewellers, in the fast-growing shopping hub of Chennai (formerly Madras).
Like all great success stories, GRT as the shop is fondly called by customers, began from humble origins.
Through single-minded focus on customer satisfaction, GRT soon became a household name in Chennai, gaining renown for the purity of its ornaments, wide choice of designs and consistent customer delight.
GRT's growing customer base made necessary the expansion of its retail outlet. A bigger showroom was built to give customers a great shopping ambience, as well as the widest choice of collections. Silverware had its own separate floor, which boasted of the largest collection in India on a single floor.
Subsequently, a new showroom was added on Coats Road, T Nagar, Chennai, reflecting changing tastes and needs of customers. This showroom also boasts of the largest diamond floor in Chennai.
'GRT Silversmith' is an exclusive silver jewellery collection introduced by GRT Jewellers. The overwhelming response to this collection called for a separate showroom of its own, housed at Chennai next to GRT Jewellery Saving Scheme Section and shop-in-shops across all its branches.
'GRT Oriana' Statements in gold begin at Rs.3000 another successful GRT Collection targeted at young women between 18 and 35 years, and offers gold and diamond collections that can be worn daily to work, campus or to a party.
GRT's move to the next level is being steered by G. Rajendran's sons, G. R. Anantha Padmanabhan and G. R. Radhakrishnan; whose relentless pursuit after growth and passion for the jewellery business, resulted in the birth of showrooms in Bengaluru , Hyderabad , Tirupati , Visakhapatnam , Hosur , Kumbakonam , Madurai , Tiruvallur , Trichy , Virudhachalam , Puducherry

GRT takes a comprehensive approach towards environmental responsibility. Our own renewable energy producing sources – windmills produces 25.9 megawatts of energy and our overall captive conception is just 8.5 megawatts that means we’re producing 32.81% more energy than our actual conception volume.
Recently we have invested on 15 megawatts solar energy production units at Tamil Nadu as a small contribution to our environment and planning to increase 10 more megawatts by this year end.
We’ve dramatically reduced the environmental impact of our institutions and we continue to invest in ways to produce more renewable energy and lessen our carbon footprint even more.
