Ann Korman's journey into fine jewelry started when she was traveling in India and her guru asked her if she wanted to collaborate on a line. Without thinking it over, she said yes. Three years after starting work on her collection, Ann launched her line in November 2016. She's always had an affinity for artistic design and culture. After graduating from Cornell, she went on to earn her Masters in Fine Arts. Ann spent her career showing in New York galleries and worked as a fashion editor for Condé Nast.
Ann has extensive spiritual and physical training in a breadth of disciplines, including Meditation & Gemology, Yoga, Kabbalah, and Nutrition. The deep commitment to her practice is personified in the designs of ARK. Today, Ann lives in Los Angeles with her beautiful family.
