There ability to be on the cutting edge and represent the newest trends makes them a unique and one of a kind designer. I hope that you would take time to visit KARATS and see this collection in person as it radiates amazingness from all angles .

Some Of My Favorite Quotes

“The big thing is rationality. So why do smart people do things that interfere with getting the output they’re entitled to? It gets into the habits and character and temperament, and behaving in a rational manner. Not getting in your own way. As I said, everybody here has the ability absolutely to do anything I do and much beyond. Some of you will, and some of you won’t. For the ones who won’t, it will be because you get in your own way, not because the world doesn’t allow you.” ~ Warren Buffett

“The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.” -Thomas Henry Huxley

“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans…”

“I wonder why it is when I plan a route too carefully it goes to pieces, whereas if I blunder along in willful ignorance aimed in a fancied direction, I get through with no trouble”

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
Bertrand Russell

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
Sir Winston Churchill

“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.
— Thomas Paine

With Gratitude You Reach New Heights

Im grateful for the friendships and partnerships that we have in the amazing jewelry industry I belong too. Recently KARATS was awarded as the # 1 Engagement Ring Store by The Knot Magazine and within weeks we received a fabulous honor from Vanna K Designer Brand.

We were bestowed with the # 1 performing Vanna K Dealer in Entire America for 2013. As I am reflecting on these honors I have to say that it cannot be done without the humble support of my family, friends, Karats Team Members, Customers, Vendors & Designers and each one of you that truly cares for us.

Each day I hope that I can exemplify Humbleness, A heart filled with Gratitude and Most Importantly Always Putting Others First. I keep in my heart the biblical quote from Matthew “The First Shall be The Last, The Last Shall Be The First And The Servant Amongst You Would Be The Greatest.” It is with the servant like attitude I hope to impact every life I touch.

I share with you the highest of honors that WE ( Entire KARATS Team ) received from Vanna K – http://blog.vannak.com/2014/01/a-beautiful-partnership-karats-jewelers.html

Wishing everyone a Grand 2014. Do not let anything stop you from being the greatest you ever can be.

Greatness.

“I am in competition with no one. I run my own race. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone, in any way, shape, or form. I just aim to improve, to be better than I was before. That’s me…and I’m free.” ~Unknown
We all live once, what matters is what we do with our lives. What we do with seconds we have each day. Make a difference and leave this world better than what you found it as. That is living, That is revolutionary and that is epic.

Above & Beyond the call of Duty. Customer Service.

Reason #982 Why We Love What We Do at KARATS JEWELERS : Customer wanted to get an engagement ring and propose in the next couple weeks. He is a busy business executive and had no time to stop by the store besides today at 8:30 am, however we do not open till 10am everyday. Told him I would be happy to help him One on One and get him his dream ring for her. I was at the store at 7:30 am with a Starbucks getting ready for him and he showed up promptly at 8:30, found a ring he loved and thanked me for being here earlier than regular time. While he was ecstatic to find the PERFECT RING he said there was no one that would have done what we did for him by personally opening up the store before regular business hours since he called a couple places before someone recommended him to come to us. We made a LIFE LONG CUSTOMER at KARATS simply because we always go ABOVE & BEYOND the call of duty. When you love what you do it shows in everything you touch.

Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel Laureate and one of my favorite writers.

Rabindranath Tagore is one of my favorite writers. Here is one of my favorite ones. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Akshay Anand August 28th, 2013

And Joy is Everywhere;
It is in the Earth’s green covering of grass;
In the blue serenity of the Sky;
In the reckless exuberance of Spring;
In the severe abstinence of gray Winter;
In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame;
In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright;
In Living;
In the exercise of all our powers;
In the acquisition of Knowledge;
in fighting evils…
Joy is there Everywhere.

– Rabindranath Tagore, 1861-1941
Nobel Prize in Literature, 1913

Being An Entrepreneur

Akshay Andy Anand

Akshay Andy Anand

The greatest of joys is to create something bigger and better than you. To put your heart, soul and everything you have to see it grow. Just like how a mother raises a child. Our Businesses is our passion, its a dream and its made with immense emotions and we as Entrepreneurs put every single bit of what we have into it.

I am so blessed to be the 6th generation in the Jewelry Business and live a life filled with passion for what I do. My grandfather would have been so proud to see KARATS in Kansas City. He would have been filled with joy to see how is generations have uplifted the family name and legacy.

I aspire to do my best each day for my business, my family, my loved ones and my community.
