About Anna Hu

Anna Hu founded her namesake brand, Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie, at the age of 30 and opened her first flagship boutique in New York's Plaza Hotel in 2008. She has since opened flagships in Shanghai's renowned Bund area and most recently at the luxurious new Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Taipei.  She is the only Asian American jewelry designer to work exclusively with French-trained artisans to create one-of-a-kind artworks featuring the world's rarest gems. Highly educated in the United States with degrees from Columbia University, the Gemological Institute of America, Parsons School of Design, and NY's Fashion Institute of Technology, Anna is as much a scholar as she is an artist and her exquisite designs reflect that unique sophistication. Her work combines Eastern and Western influences, often inspired by classical music and nature, with particular reference to  Impressionism and Art Nouveau.

Anna presented her first global exhibition at the Louvre's Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris in July 2012 and launched her first book, "Symphony of Jewels, op. 1," published by The Vendome Press and Thames & Hudson, that September. It features 100 pieces from her illustrious body of work. In 2013, she broke and still holds the world auction record for the highest price paid for a contemporary jewelry designer (Christie's Magnificent Jewels, Geneva).


Anna is recognized for her artistic and technical innovation and has received awards both nationally and internationally. Her jewelry has been worn by Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Drew Barrymore, Hilary Swank, Oprah Winfrey, the acclaimed contemporary artist Cindy Sherman, and the Queen of Bhutan. She's been featured in The Wall Street Journal, W, ELLE, The New York Times, VOGUE, InStyle, Robb Report, The Financial Times, Vanity Fair, and other leading national and international publications.
