A plan that will ckclogo redefine how precious jewellery is purchased. C Krishniah Chetty and Sons, the pioneering heritage house of jewelers, today announced a first-of-its-kind ‘Rate Protection Plan’; called The C. Krishniah Chetty and Sons – Gold Standard 1869 Rate Protection Plan for buying/ saving for gold, silver and diamond jewellery. This is not only a systematic savings and planning programme, but one which protects the consumer by calculating the rate of the 3 BIG precious jewellery – Gold, Silver and Diamond.

• Period of savings may be from just 12 months to 60 months (5 years).
• An option to pay one installment and take the benefits later by blocking the rate of metals and giving a discount later on the jewellery.
•Giving the consumer a chance to decide what to buy at the time of maturity without having to specify this at the beginning.
•Getting additional discounts and offers from time to time, at time of maturity.
•Allowing consumer to skip installments and keep the maturity period fixed thereby all on-time payments get the benefits.
•Having no upper limits, consumers may pay up to and above Rs1 lac or Rs 5 lacs or more per installment. (Mandatory PAN card numbers will be insisted for purchases over Rs 5 lacs).
•Offering multi-option payment methods such as cash, post dated cheques, DDs, bank transfers, Credit Cards and soon On-line.
•Allowing extensions by 3 months or more (minimum 3 months at a time) before last installment is paid.
• Being able to place custom-manufactured special orders with special designers.
• Allowing purchases at maturity to be made at average gold/ silver/ diamond rates which is the rates averaged based on the due dates of payment (provided payments are made on time) or customers
can also shift to the cash benefit method, whereby they can buy at ‘current’ day’s rate prevailing at their stores, whichever is beneficial to the consumer.
