Angara is a word in ancient Sanskrit that means "the fire within." It is with this Angara that the Earth has created our magnificent gemstones. Our family has been in the fine gemstone business for generations and has deep roots in gemstone cutting, polishing and design. We specialize in Sapphires, Rubies, Emeralds, Tanzanites, Diamonds and other gemstones. While we have primarily catered to larger retailers around the world, in 2005 we decided to bring our gemstones and gemstone jewelry directly to the public.
What does Angara mean?
We are a vertically integrated company – right from stone-cutting, designing, manufacturing, quality control and fulfillment, everything is taken care of in-house. In thirteen years, we have grown to become a prominent online player in the jewelry industry. With recent partnerships with brands like Harvard University and Natori, we’re expanding our reach across the globe. Currently, we ship to more than 64 countries worldwide with our primary customer base located in the US region, and have jewelry manufacturing facilities in LA, Jaipur and Bangkok. We also recently launched our website for Australia, Britain and Canada. Leading American magazine Newsweek recently recognized us as the best online jeweler in its “Best Online Shops 2020” rankings. In addition to this, we also received the highest rating in the fashion and accessories space and were placed 6th out of more than 9,500 e-commerce sites across the internet.
