Coimbatore-based retail jewellery chain Kirtilals launched its largest antique jewellery collection in Bangalore on Monday. About 1,000 pieces of exclusive design, created in-house will be on display for a month starting March 27, 2006.

Speaking at the launch, Mr Balaji Viswanathan, Head, Marketing, Kirtilals Retail Division, said that a consumer survey had shown that Bangaloreans prefer antique jewellery.

The jewellery range starting with Rs 5,000 per piece goes up to Rs 5 lakh, he said.
