About Nam Cho:
Nam Cho had early training in classical violin and the fine arts. Her mother, an accomplished painter, designer, and collector, encouraged Nam's exuberant, creative talent. And, her father, a banking executive, shared his knowledge of international business. Upon graduating from the prestigious Parsons School of Design with two Gold Thimble awards, Nam entered the world of fashion. Nam designed for top American designers Narciso Rodriguez, Richard Tyler, Patrick Robinson, and others and honed her creative skills in ready-to-wear and accessories. But Nam felt a lack of intimacy between fine jewelry and fashion and decided to start her own jewelry company. She had noticed that many impeccably dressed women, with up-to-date knowledge of fashion and clothing, would accessorize with jewelry that did not coordinate in style or quality. Nam would sometimes find herself sketching appropriate jewelry for these women. Nam believes modern fine jewelry must be luxurious, classic, and timeless (and a good investment) but also young, exciting, and fresh. Jewelry should make the wearer feel effortlessly glamorous and beautiful, but also chic, whether she's in a day suit or an evening gown.
