Anthony Camargo and Nak Armstrong met in New York in the early 1990s. Nak, a native Texan, had come to the Big Apple to pursue a career in fashion, while California-born Camargo had been drawn to the city to design furniture and large-scale installation pieces. They soon discovered a common passion for design and fashion. After relocating to Austin, TX in 1999, they launched Anthony Nak.
Their first collection received considerable media attention and they were commissioned to design Barbara and Jenna Bush's jewelry for President George W. Bush's 2001 Inaugural Ball. Over the years, many celebrities have worn Anthony Nak on the red carpet.
Camargo and Nak's inspiration comes from all forms of life and art. From nature to classic architecture, each collection reflects a distinct aesthetic. Their exclusive QVC line, Atelier Anthony Nak, consists of exquisite sterling silver.
Intriguing symbolism lies behind those who prefer the look of pear-cut jewelry, a.k.a. the teardrop. They say women who wear the cut are excellent with finances, easygoing in nature, and considerate to others. They're also ambitious, eager for life experiences and active in community affairs.
