A-Star Alliance is an alliance between three independent groups of diamond companies owned by members of the Mehta family- Blue Star Diamonds, Arjav Diamonds and Aurostar. The alliance has the goal to optimise the synergies that the three groups share. Individual assets of each group are complemented by strengths of the others, hence creating a strong alliance well equipped to continue its journey in the diamond industry that started with the foundation of Blue Star Diamonds in 1966.

WE WRITE OUR LEGACY EVERYDAY

The Beginning

Blue Star was founded in 1966 by Vasantlal Mehta, the first generation of the Mehta family in the diamond industry. Since its foundation Blue Star Diamonds has grown from a pioneer in manufacturing larger sizes in India to a leading manufacturer and distributor of pointers to 10ct polished goods globally. This achievement was acknowledged by getting recognized as an international De Beers Sight in 1994.

The Blue Star Promise

The manufacturing is underpinned by strong and consistent rough intake as a De Beers Sightholder, a Dominion Contract holder and client with many junior miners. This means the company can promise a continuous and dependable supply to all customers and their programs.
