LOS ANGELES, January 11, 2024 (Newswire.com) - Angara, the leading online jeweler, proudly announces its recent triumph in the 2024 BIG Innovation Awards in the Retail category, presented by the esteemed Business Intelligence Group. Angara’s success is attributed to its groundbreaking initiative, "Create With Angara" (CWA), which empowers customers to design their dream engagement ring, revolutionizing the traditional fine jewelry shopping experience.
Ankur Daga, Founder and CEO of Angara.com, expressed his gratitude for the recognition, stating, "We are honored to be acknowledged by the Business Intelligence Group for our commitment to innovation and customer empowerment. Angara's CWA feature is a celebration of individuality. It aims to make that all-important proposal moment a truly special one by allowing every customer to design a bespoke ring that tells their unique story."
