Lot Essay

Born in Taiwan in 1977, Anna Hu grew up travelling the world with her gem dealer father, in his quest for rare stones. A musical prodigy, Anna won several awards as a cellist but after a shoulder injury, Anna turned her attention once again to precious stones. After studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology and gaining her GIA qualification as well as two jewellery related masters degrees from Parsons School of Design and Columbia University, Anna worked with Christie's, Van Cleef and Arpels and Harry Winston. It was whilst working with Harry Winston that she met head designer Maurice Galli who encouraged her to create her own line after taking her on as his only private student.

This talented young designer opened her exclusive jewellery boutique in December 2008, aged just 29, at the Plaza hotel in New York and she now creates no more than 30 exclusive Haute Jewellery pieces a year for private collectors.
