Anita Ko

Fine Jewelry Designer. Los Angeles

Cougars, and spikes, and lapidated nature... oh my! The year was 2006, and Anita Ko, a native Angelino, took the plunge and launched her namesake jewelry line, nine years after graduating from NYU with a degree in Art History. While Ko draws inspiration from her global travels, there's a 40-year timeframe that really has had a profound creative influence on her designs - the 1940's through the 1980's. Hello swing dancers and Pat Benetar denim! She originally honed in on her entrepreneurial charisma, and fresh out of college life, she put her efforts forth and launched a line of handbags that put her name on the map. But her inherent passion for fine gems was always an endeavor she wanted to pursue, and fast-forward a couple of years, and Anita Ko (the namesake luxe line of jewels) was born. Ko’s precious jewels caught our attention years ago…as well as a slew of celebs: M.K. and A, Demi Moore, Nicole Richie, Rihanna, Rachel Zoe, Kate Hudson and Victoria Beckham. The aesthetic encompasses micro-pave diamonds, 18 karat gold, and vibrant semi-precious stones. We kid you not, if we could, we would sleep in her killer animalistic gems Monday through Friday (alright, alright... twist our arms - we will sleep in her creations on the weekends too). While currently sold at such retail powerhouses like Net-A-Porter, The Webster Miami and Neiman Marcus, we've already been saving our pennies towards KoKo's ridiculously chic 18 karat white gold pavé panther knocker necklaces. Our ears are almost as excited as we are!
