Get ready to discover the team behind Nangi—a passionate team of jewelry lovers! We believe it's high time you meet the faces behind the brand. Nestled within our small, tight-knit Nangi family lies a profound adoration for all things jewelry!
Meet Jenny, co-founder, boss and mother of gems. With a keen eye for quality gemstones, a knack for designing flawless jewelry pieces, and the ability to run the entire Nangi operation like a pro, Jenny does it all! Jenny's passion for crafting stunning jewelry is evident in every piece she creates. With her unique blend of creativity and business acumen, Jenny is a driving force behind Nangi's continued success. She is not only responsible for picking out the finest gemstones and designing exquisite jewelry, but also for writing newsletters that keep our customers up-to-date on the latest trends and happenings at Nangi.
Jenny is originally from Bergen and currently resides in Oslo with her husband, Danuka, their dog, and two wonderful children. With a double master's degree in Business Development & Innovation from Copenhagen Business School and Bocconi University in Milan, Jenny brings a ton of knowledge and experience to her role as a leader of our team. In her free time, Jenny spends time with family and friends, indulges in her love of literature, politics and tennis, and explores her passion for music.
Jenny has a special fondness for the captivating ruby gemstone. Her favorite cut for gemstones is the striking trillion cut, which showcases the unique beauty and color of each stone. When it comes to diamonds, she has a preference for the radiant cut, which adds an extra touch of sparkle and brilliance to any piece of jewelry.
One of our stunning Adams Peak rings stacked with our Snake Tail. She loves the floating illusion the placement of the gemstone gives to the overall design, combined with the insane sparkle from the trillion cut gemstone. Did you know that the triangular shape of a trillion cut gemstone is specifically designed to maximize the amount of light that enters and exits the stone? The angles of the facets and the overall shape of the stone are carefully calculated to ensure that light is reflected in the most effective way. Adams Peak combined with a Snake Tail, is in her eyes, the ultimate Nangi stack!
Meet Danuka, co-founder of Nangi. Danuka’s role is helping with thinking “big picture” and how Nangi can deliver value to customers. Moreover, he does everything related to finance, whether it being invoices, budgets or accounting. He ensures that all financial aspects are taken care of and that Nangi has a solid financial foundation.
Danuka is the reason Sri Lanka plays such an important part of our story. His parents emigrated from Sri Lanka to Norway in the late 70's. Growing up in Oslo, Danuka and his family frequently traveled back to Sri Lanka to visit relatives in Colombo. Jenny and Danuka got married in Sri Lanka, and shortly after the proposal, their Nangi baby came about.
Danuka has a passion for cricket and enjoys swimming in the ocean year-round. He is also an avid Twitter user! He graduated from The Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) and works as a Management Consultant when he’s not busy with Nangi. With his unique background and diverse interests, Danuka brings knowledge and perspective to our organization as a strategic leader and valued member of our team.
Danuka wears his Gold Panther Chain every single day, and he has the matching Panther Chain Bracelet in Silver. His wedding band is His Rounded Love Band in rose gold, which is very different from Jenny’s wedding band, namely Hitched in yellow gold! It's worth noting the distinction between their metal colors, emphasizing that wedding rings don't necessarily have to match in design or metal choice.
