India 21 October 2016: CaratLane, India's leading omni-channel jeweller announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind initiative by any jewellery brand in India to support ‘design’prenuers’ to bring individual talent into the industry. CDI will nurture jewellery designers with a 6-month mentorship, hands-on training from industry experts and a deep understanding of the entrepreneurial role of design in business.

Announcing the launch, Mithun Sacheti, Founder & CEO, CaratLane, said, “Jewellery designers today find it increasingly difficult to find a breakthrough into the industry.
