Estimates peg the Indian jewellery market at over $60 billion. It is also the third largest in the world. Melorra is disrupting this segment by creating pieces that are not just meant for investment when needed but also for a 'buy-now, wear-now' purpose. The startup closely works with fashion stylists and jewellery designers to remain on top of global fashion trends in order to meet the changing wardrobe needs of modern women.
Speaking about this, Ms. Saroja Yeramilli, Founder, Melorra , said, "The designs offered by most players in the Indian jewellery segment are primarily targeted for weddings, festivals or other special occasions. The pieces have always been designed in a silo without accounting for the changing needs of Indian women and cannot be worn with other attires such as a dress or everyday work clothes. At Melorra, our aim is to try and address this very 'wardrobe mismatch'. We understand the fashion cycles that inspire women's wardrobe choices, tailor our collections to these trends, and give women something unique to wear. Also, millennials are not looking for classic or heirloom jewellery like the older generation and want something exquisite. We never want one to be out of fashion options and that's why we add 6 new designs every day, 42 new designs every week. Melorra designs pieces that they can wear for anything from causal events to formal affairs."
Their feature called 'Style Feed' advices users on accessorizing their new wardrobe styles with Melorra jewellery. Over 75% of the collections are priced below INR 30,000. All the gold jewellery is hallmarked and the diamonds are SGL, IGI and DGLA certified. The brand offers a 30-days return and lifetime exchange policies.
Backed by Lightbox Ventures, Melorra received one of the largest ever seed funding in Indian history of $5 million. The startup has invested in the latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology, enabling high precision and accuracy to execute and convert computer sketches into virtual 3D models. The models are then rendered with real material input. Melorra is available on iOS and Android, and on a mobile responsive site.
The company has warehouses in Jaipur, Mumbai, and Bengaluru and works with Ecomm Express as the logistics partner. Equipped with the latest technology, Melorra has engulfed the fine jewellery space with marquee collections and perfect pieces for any outfit. With cutting-edge designs and technological prowess, Melorra is going full-steam ahead in reaping the rewards of driving a change in consumer behaviour.
