ARK is both the initials of the designer, Ann Korman and a conscious reference to protection, safety, and a constant forward movement. Korman's hope; Inspire the journey towards enlightenment and celebration. Inspire people. Make them things of beauty that spark joy. Created from 18-karat gold, diamonds, and gemstones, each piece in the collection is born from Korman's love for the East, Ritual, Light, and the concept of Time. An avid practitioner of yoga and meditation, she started making jewelry while in India, learning all she could about the traditional Vedic understanding of gemstones and energy, as well as the ancient tantric symbols that turn up in her designs.
