Who is Anita Ko?
Born and raised in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, Anita Ko started designing her own necklaces at the age of seven after being inspired by her mother’s jewelry collection. Being fond of jewelry, her mother would buy Anita little cheap things and ruby beads so she could make her own stuff. As Anita got older, she would ask his father to take her to various jewelry shops where she got inspiration for her jewelry designs.
Fast forward to many years after, with her pure luxury boldness, Anita Ko was able to launch her own high-end brand ranging from $400 for spike studs to $100,000 for customized designs that have received an overwhelming response from the market especially from famous Hollywood celebrities.

When Anita Ko started her line in 2006, it was not an instantly smooth-sailing milestone.

Anita was able to introduce a variety of contemporary, unique pieces in the market, enabling more women to unleash their style and individuality. In spite of her fame and the success of her eponymous brand, Anita Ko has been humbly working from an office at the border of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Celebrities and stylists would conveniently visit her location to see or borrow her jewelry.
