Mr.Cyril Moonthungal Augustine established Cyril Jewellers in the year 1956 through his pioneering gold and diamond retail store at Palace Road in the ancient port city of Kochi, Kerala , southern India. Mr. Cyril was a visionary who came from a humble beginning and was determined and devoted to his entrepreneurial vision in the same strength that he had towards his faith and spirituality. His pioneering savings plan whereby day labourers could remit a small sum of money every week to own a piece of gold ornament was innovative. It lead a revolution whereby even the commoners could own an asset which was restricted to only the higher classes of society.
