MEKLATE’s humble beginnings date back to 1980s when our first shop was
set up in Kuala Lumpur on the Datuk Keramat Street, then known as “Kuala Lumpur Malay Jewelers’ Corner”, by our both Co-founder Niaz Ahmad Makbool Ahmad and Late Ismail Haji Salleh. The little shop still stands today as a nostalgic reminder of how the journey of MEKLATE began.Before, MEKLATE was known as “Kedai Tukang Emas Mohamad Nawi”.
From the start, MEKLATE did things differently. In the early years, at a time when gold was the mainstay of jewelers, we sold diamonds & gemstones.
MEKLATE soon spread its wings in Kuala Lumpur. Under the helm of our Young visionary founder, Muhammad Asyraf Bin Zulkifli, the company’s retail business soon flourished. We opened our first shop in Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) in Kuala Lumpur and quickly gained a loyal following.
The brand nowadays keep growing popularity in Kuala Lumpur.Today we are
proud to be one of the country’s premier jewelers; a multi-award winning brand that appeals to different walks of life.
With a reputation for quality and world-class designs, we believe in valuing tradition even as we embrace the contemporary. Enhancing value for the customer is a priority for us, and as a result, we have earned the trust of customers near and far.
It should come as no surprise that MEKLATE’s core values, which began in the early days of the founder, still resonate today.
The core values touch the lives of our management and employees alike, professionally and personally, creating an extended MEKLATE family that takes pride in providing warm, personalized service to a wide spectrum of customers.
MEKLATE’s clientele is diverse in background and geographic location, ranging from Malaysia and other parts of Asia including Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore, and Hong Kong to the US and Europe.

This includes cultivating a fair and satisfying work environment that will nurture our people so they can evolve alongside with us.
