Bahrain Jewellery Centre was established by the late Abdul Razak Shirazi, Abdul Majeed Shirazi and Dr Abual Qassim Shirazi in 1978. BJC began as a single small shop and a few numbers of brands in the Kanoo Building at Bab Al Bahrain on Al Tijjar Avenue in 1978. The brands included Patek Philippe, Piaget, Omega and Vacheron Constantin along with a few renowned Jewellers like Maria Gaspari, Stephan Hafner and many more.
By 1979, BJC opened a new, bigger shop adjacent to the first. The new shop was three times bigger than the first.
To address the concerns of accessibility and parking constraints, BJC moved to the iconic Moda mall in 1986. BJC continued to add many more world-renowned brands under its umbrella year after year.
