DANIEL KOREN began his jewelry education at a young age. The son of a second-generation diamond dealer, he was captivated by the hustle and bustle of the diamond industry, and it was little surprise when he stepped into the jewelry world, launching his high-jewelry brand, Daniel K, in New York in 1999. What was surprising was the subsequent speed at which his brand and his personal reputation for jewelry excellence grew.

By 2005, signature designs, such as the unique Uternity rings with unusually set square emerald cut diamonds and the whimsical Reverso collection of multifunctional jewels, led to Koren scooping the JQ Magazine Designer of the Year award.

The Daniel K brand has continued to grow in prestige and reach, counting numerous A-list celebrities among its clients and retailing in a diverse range of global markets including the US, Dubai, Australia and Russia.

In 2014, Koren launched his first diffusion fine jewelry collection featuring the most exquisitely cut simulated diamonds set in sterling silver. Named DANI by Daniel K, the new brand made its worldwide debut at Baselworld, with the aim of introducing a new generation of jewelry lovers to the brand. DANI by Daniel K offers products that purchasers can afford now, before perhaps moving on, one day, to own a high-end, precious Daniel K piece.

While this new brand marks a departure in materials for a designer that previously worked only with real gems set in gold and platinum, the exactingly high quality of design and craftsmanship associated with the Daniel K name remain very much the same.
