Youngjun Ko

Executive Director

Jun studied product design at Parsons before joining Mikimoto to design jewelry.


I have also completed the diamond grading program at GIA. 
 
In 2011, I began designing under my own name, and I now run a full production facility and design studio in Manhattan’s Jewelry District.

My design philosophy is that design should reflect each client’s identity and that this identity should be expressed naturally. 
 
I am determined to create a design company that embodies the creative spirit, and one that also aspires a new generation of designers and non-profit organizations by funding their works and efforts.
