Zaveri Bazaar is home to both reputable jewellery brands and quality costume jewellery vendors, making it a magpie magnet across budgets. More than 60% of all Indian dealings in gold happen here. When prices rise, the century-old, unassuming bullion merchant Jugraj Kantilal & Co. sees the queue of people who come to sell gold snake out into the streets. Once you’re done, there’s a khau galli for that other Gujarati gold – gathiyas, jalebis, kachoris.
