The American Business Awards are the USA’s premier business awards program, recognizing outstanding achievements across various industries. Over 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and industries were submitted this year, with winners selected through a rigorous judging process by 300+ professionals worldwide.

The judges were particularly impressed by Daga’s unwavering commitment to personalized experiences and innovation in the fine jewelry industry. It showcased to them a rare blend of passion, vision, and strategic acumen. Daga’s leadership, with its focus on customization and market penetration, also stood out, placing him at the forefront of a colored gemstone revolution in this exciting segment.

Under Ankur's visionary leadership, Angara has achieved remarkable growth and recognition, including global expansion to over 64 countries, and numerous prestigious awards. His strategic initiatives, such as the introduction of the "Create with Angara" feature and the "Celebrate with Color" campaign, have redefined the customer experience and positioned Angara as a leader in colored gemstones.

"I am deeply honored to receive the Gold Stevie® Award for Best Entrepreneur - Retail," said Daga. "It is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team, whose commitment to innovation and excellence has been instrumental in our success.
