Orta appeared in the Season 2 finale of Shark Tank in May 2011. He came onto the show wanting $180,000 for a 45-percent stake in his business. He wanted help bringing his high-end jewelry to the masses.
As Orta explained to the sharks, his clients thus far had been royalty and celebrities, including the royal family of Kuwait, the Bacardi family, Calvin Klein, and Cyndi Lauper.
But Orta had his sights set on a different customer base. “I want to do the same type of majestic, glamorous, beautiful designs, but much more affordable,” he said.
Specifically, Orta wanted to sell his designs on QVC, but the home-shopping channel required $50,000 for the first order.
