Angara means “the fire within” in Sanskrit, named in tribute to the fire within the earth that formed the beautiful gemstones Angara offers on its site. For generations Angara specialized in gemstone cutting, polishing and design, and sold to big name retailers. But in 2005 the founder, Ankur Daga, used his business acumen to take Angara straight to the consumer and opened the online retail store. Flying in the face of conventional jewelry wisdom that said customers wouldn’t pay top dollar for unseen gemstones, Ankur knew that busy business people would appreciate the convenience Angara was offering. Now celebrated in Daily Candy, Women’s Wear Daily, Crain’s, Forbes and more for its success, Angara continues to exceed customer expectations. Shopping for must-have pieces for themselves, or looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, customers can trust the products offered by Angara’s experts and innovators. Earrings, necklaces, rings and more have drop-down menus to shop by gemstone, style, collection or price to take full advantage of the Angara shopping experience.
