Sunar

Sunar (alternately Suniar(eh), Sonar or Swarnkar) is a Hindu caste in India and Nepal referring to the community of people who work as goldsmiths. Though the community is primarily Hindu, some members in the states of Haryana and Punjab are Sikh.

Though they are the traditional goldsmiths of North India, now many are also landowners, involved in cultivation, as well as selling grocery. However their main occupation remains the manufacture and selling of jewellery. Members of the community are also involved in pawnbroking and moneylending.
