At Vasavi thangamaaligai, we begin with a core commitment to ethical values. We deal exclusively in BIS 916 Hallmarked gold, a mark of quality enforced by the Bureau of Indian Standards and recognized by the government of India. However, in order to ensure that manufacturing processes do not result in jewellery that is even slightly less than 916 purity, Vasavi thangamaaligai ensures that gold is of at least 917 ( 916 + 1 Quality Service & Customer Satisfaction ) purity, i.e. more than 916 pure. To our customers, it serves as a quality assurance about the quality of the gold they buy from us. We have kept our making charges and prices at the lowest levels in the market, assuring affordability for a wider class of people. And in keeping with our standards of integrity and transparency, all transactions at Vasavi thangamaaligai are billed for the full value. In this way, customers have proof of purchase and can hold us to account for what they buy from us.
