Hailing from a line of jewellers in the beautiful island of Mauritius, it is no surprise that Harrylall Sooklall ventures into jewellery making in 1977. However, it is not until 1995 that he opens his first jewellery shop in Quatre-Bornes, then founding Sokalor in 2003. A showcase of gemstones and precious metals, the jewellery shop since then guarantees a local production simultaneously amalgamating tradition, quality, design and innovation.
However, gone are the days of artisan jewellery when his son Guvish joins him in the journey in 2010. Sokalor has since acquired cutting-edge technology for the manufacture of its jewellery. Moreover, the jewellery shop is one of the first in the country to have introduced 3D design, 3D prototyping, laser engraving and gold or platinum casting. Thanks to these new technologies, we have an advantage. We can show jewellery in 3D to our customers before production.
From the drawing to the model, from the creation to the polishing and to the setting of gemstones on precious metals, each of the creations is carefully thought out, cherished and mounted in an ancestral way to concoct a majestic jewel. To do this, several steps are necessary and it is a know-how acquired over time that defines the style of Sokalor, excelling in the production of jewellery locally, as a retailer and wholesaler, with a subtle blend of aesthetics and art of living not found elsewhere.
At Sokalor, father and son play the game of gratifying their customers’ wildest whims in terms of jewellery. Apart from quality, their jewellery shops offers personalised services by giving customers the opportunity to choose their precious metals and stones according to their tastes, hues and desires to make it a dazzling, unique jewel that can match any occasion.
