Brilliant Cuts Ltd. was recognised for the second year by the National Chamber of Commerce as the company wins the Bronze Award – small category (Gem and Jewellery sector) at the 28th Annual NCE Export Awards Ceremony 2020.
The achievement procured by Brilliant Cuts has reaffirmed the company’s significant contribution to the Sri Lankan gem and jewellery industry, bringing a newfound hope for the future of the industry to reach milestones within the wider international market.
The reoccurring success exhibited throughout since its conception, backed by an unwavering spirit to strive to produce nothing but the finest of its calibre, Brilliant Cuts operates with the guidance of the remarkable mother and daughter duo, Malani Polgampola (Directress of Brilliant Cuts) and Vindya Perera (Managing Directress at Brilliant Cuts).
Vindya has laid the foundation to build her own brand, Lustre, through Brilliant Cuts, and as a result she was previously awarded with the Women Entrepreneur – Non-Traditional Business Award, Gold, at the Sabaragamuwa Province Best Entrepreneur of the Year 2020 award ceremony, the Provincial Youngest Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 award from Sabaragamuwa Chamber of Commerce, and the Bronze Award from National Chamber of Exports (small category) at the Sabaragamuwa Province Best Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 award ceremony.
The concept of both Brilliant Cuts and Lustre are such that they operate as two local platforms which open a creative space for novice and expert lapidary artists to uplift their talent further, and pave a rewarding career path for themselves in the Sri Lankan gem and jewellery industry, by pushing the boundaries of developing creative flair.
The guidance asserted by Brilliant Cuts on its valued lapidary artists has brought hope and opportunities for their careers to flourish in the local and international gem and jewellery market, ensuring a brighter future for those who lay their passion in crafting gems and jewellery. Initiatives have been put in place by Brilliant Cuts in order to expand the local gem and jewellery industry towards the international market.
However, unfortunate circumstances keep arising due to various reasons through distinctive distribution platforms in Sri Lanka, therefore a large number of products of the brand are unable to be distributed to the international market, enabling a fluctuation of production. The company strives to address these issues in the future with stronger and effective means of distribution.
As the industry progresses towards innovation and modernity, Brilliant Cut is undoubtedly at the forefront of being a catalyst towards accelerating such progressive initiatives. Having made it its mission to uplift the Sri Lankan traditional lapidarist while feeding in a touch of modern artistic flair, the family of Brilliant Cuts revels in the seemingly immense talent that they have welcomed in through their doors, with the vision to bring forth a new beginning to the Sri Lankan gem and jewellery industry.
