Start-up raised £200,000 via crowdfunding to launch diamond business.
London-based bespoke jeweller Rare Pink was named New Jeweller of the Year at the British Jewellers’ Association Awards on December 4, just 12 months after launching its website.
The e-tail venture started as a living room start-up for its co-founder and chief executive officer, Nikolay Pirankov, who raised £200,000 through crowd-funding channels to start the business.
Now, the company has three offices in London, New York and Hong Kong.
Rare Pink aims to “…change the way clients shop for their perfect engagement ring. Providing top quality craftsmanship, ethically-sourced diamonds along with a superior service…”
Since launching a new signature collection of diamond engagement rings in September, sales of the company’s buildable and customisable designs have grown by 700%. Each piece is signed with a pink diamond set on the inside of each ring.
