Tanishq was a business with a huge wealth potential and it added a very feminine offering to Tata's long line of products that appealed mostly to the opposite gender. It also called for an organization that inspired trust and had high order design, manufacturing, marketing and retailing skills, and Tata fit the bill on all accounts.Tanishq was coined from a combination of Tata/Nishq (meaning a necklace of gold coins) and, again, from Tan, meaning body and Ishq, meaning love.It was launched in 1994 as a range of jewellery and jewellery watches meant for the European & American markets. But things began to change globally around this time, and the West entered a protracted period of slow economic growth followed by recession. Supplying jewellery to the Americans & Europeans suddenly no longer seemed an attractive proposition.Initially, the criticism for Titan's foray into jewellery was loud and often bitter. Eventually, however, the critics were silenced. Tanishq, today, is perhaps the only major Tata brand with a strong appeal for women. Very importantly, Tanishq has brought to the market a whole new standard of business ethics and product reliability, in the process bringing about a transformation in the manner in which jewellery is bought and sold in India.It has created a revolution in the Indian jewellery trade and in jewellery buying behaviour, and continues to set new parameters of excellence for others to follow.The Indian market, on the other hand, opened its doors to the world, and was now flooded with foreign currency. By the time Tanishq established its manufacturing facility and entered the market, the premises on which the project was based had altered substantially.Foreign currency was no longer an issue, import licences were easy to obtain and the global demand-supply equation for jewellery had shifted in favour of buyers. Tanishq, therefore, switched tracks and shifted its focus to the Indian market and develop a somewhat grandiose vision of the brand as a composite avatar of Cartier, Tiffany, Esprit, and Ernest Jones all rolled in one.
