Vaibhav Global Limited

Vaibhav Global Limited (VGL), through its distinctive business model, has created a niche for itself in the global retail space, especially in the jewellery, accessories and lifestyle product segments of two of the largest economies of the world - the US and UK.

About the company

Incorporated in 1989, VGL is involved in e-retailing of fashion jewellery, fashion accessories and lifestyle products like luxury watches, hair accessories, beauty and home décor products sourced from across the globe. VGL has seven direct subsidiaries and five step-down subsidiaries, through which it operates three 24-hour TV channels (Shop LC in the US, TJC in the UK, Shop GmbH in Germany) and e-commerce websites (, and that complement the company’s TV-based operations. Around 70% of its consolidated revenues in FY2022 was derived from sale of gemstone-studded jewellery, which is primarily manufactured at VGL’s 100% export-oriented unit (EOU) at Sitapura, Jaipur. The balance came from the sale of lifestyle and beauty products. The company generated 63% of sales from TV platforms in FY2022, and the balance 37% from web platforms. 

VGL at a glance:

In 2005, in addition to reaching the patrons via intermediaries like Wal-Mart, Sears, Macy’s, among others (B2B business), VGL set up its first retail store at holiday destination in Alaska. By the end of 2007 it had 19 retail outlets at other holiday destinations (including Alaska, Mexico and Caribbean). VGL operated in USA and UK only with brick-and-mortar model till 2006. To expand further in retail, investments were made in consumer retailing through proprietary teleshopping channels and internet in 2007. Post the brunt of Global Financial Crisis in 2009, VGL pivoted from high street retail to deep-discounted teleshopping thereafter offering low price jewellery at almost half the price of competitors in the same segment. VGL was renamed as 'Vaibhav Global Limited' in 2013.

VGL’s journey started with being a conventional gemstone exporter and then moving to become a studded jewellery export to various brands abroad (B2B business).

Investment Rationale

Experienced promoters – The company benefits from the extensive experience of its promoters spanning over three decades in the fashion jewellery and lifestyle products e-retail industry and its established track record over the years. 

End-to-end vertically integrated business model with an established supplier network and high private label sales – VGL has its own manufacturing set-up in Jaipur, Rajasthan, which caters to ~70% of its fashion jewellery requirements. The company sources lifestyle products (like watches, hair accessories, etc.) and the remaining ~30% of the jewellery retailed directly from its established supplier network in over 30 countries, including China, Thailand, and Indonesia, among others. This results in a shorter lead time for the company. Besides, high share of private label products (~90% of total sales) has helped VGL generate healthy gross profit margins of over 60% over the last six fiscals.

Extensive coverage to 127 million households; strong brand presence of VGL-owned channels in the US and the UK as well as attractive value positioning of products – VGL is an online retailer of fashion jewellery and lifestyle accessories on its proprietary TV home shopping channels (three 24x7x365 channels) and e-commerce platforms with live telecasts in the US, the UK and Germany. In FY2022, VGL generated 63% of its sales from its TV platforms, with the balance 37% of sales coming from web platforms. VGL’s TV home shopping platforms provide direct customer access to ~127 million households on a fulltime equivalent basis. The company offers value proposition to its customers by pricing its products at attractive price points, averaging around $30 per piece.
