Company Profile

Since its inception in 1995 as a partnership, The Valentine Group has emerged as one of the pioneers in the field of jewellery making and export. Valentine Jewellery India, the parent company, deals primarily in gold and diamond jewellery and has expanded its roots across the nation from the world’s ancient gem and jewellery destination - Jaipur. We further ventured into the field of Silver jewellery and thus Valentine Silver was formed in 2002-03. With its formation, the production base for our silver jewellery was given exclusive resources, allowing us to make silver products an edge above the rest in terms of global standards.

With years of impeccable craftsmanship forming a glorious legacy, our international identity – ‘Valentine Silver International’ came into existence. It took forth the golden mantra of commitment, trust, integrity, and customer satisfaction to the next level for the global market. In 2009, the company shifted to the Indian Government’s highly secure Special Economic Zone – 1 (SEZ 1), as we focused exclusively on the jewellery export business.

Determined to keep the pace of development and high quality deliverance for our clientele, in 2015 we further expanded the factory from SEZ 1 to SEZ 2, making the much anticipated move into world class brass jewellery.

Along with its primary export markets in the U.S. and Europe, our company has broadened its network of trade and export across the world. With cutting edge technological innovation combined with a legacy of utmost trust and timely deliverance, today, Valentine Silver International stands in the global jewellery scenario as a force to be reckoned with.

The Journey

In their 30 plus years of marriage, Greg and Penny had often talked about starting their own company - but the question of exactly what the company was going to be was always the hardest part (like most entrepreneurs). Having years of experience in restaurants and catalog/e-commerce sales and distribution they both knew what it took to run a fruitful company. Having learned the dos and don'ts from several entrepreneurs (some good, some crazy), they set out to do it themselves. So in early 2008 they started the preparation to launch SpicesInc.com. As the Chief Operations Officer of a large multi-channel catalog/e-commerce company, Greg knew how to build the site from marketing, purchasing, merchandising, operations, customer service and just enough technology to be dangerous. He also acquired all the books he could find on spices and read them cover to cover (often times more than once) in order to become as close to an expert as he could become. He's a big believer in the Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000 Hour Rule and lucky for him there are literally eons worth of information on spices to rifle through.
