Adding to the decline in the stock price is HSBC Research slashing its target price on the company to Rs 1,410 from Rs 1,450 per share while maintaining a 'buy' call.
The brokerage, however, in its report, said that the retail jewellery sales grew 15 percent in August-September after de-growth in July.
The company said that its watches segment underwent weak consumer sentiment due to moderation in the growth rate of division to 7 percent for the quarter and 13 percent for half-year.
