Dariba Kalan in Chandni Chowk is the oldest bullion market in the city. There are many, many shops, although famous names like Shri Ram Hari Ram Jewellers, Jankidas and Ratan Chand Jwala Nath, who are in business since several decades, are easy to recall.
Jewellers’ street as it was once known, has in the past seen brisk trade in gold, silver, diamonds, gems and precious stones. Now many shops here deal with silver and costume jewellery. You can shop here for intricate filigree work in silver, gift items like photo frames and cups, small silver figurines of Hindu gods and goddesses, silver trays and plates. If you visit Shri Ram Hari Ram, you will be surprised to find silver chairs and silver cups. They mostly sell gold and silver, but the new generation is also dabbling in diamond, gems, birthstones and precious stones.
