New York City native Jade Trau is a fine jewelry designer who utilizes over two decades of experience in the diamond industry to create authentic pieces that superimpose vintage designs with modern refined taste to express a distinctive version of classic fine jewelry.
Jade’s comprehensive understanding of the diamond sourcing process plays a central role in how she meticulously selects her stones, as they are the elements that will inspire and inform the story and personality of each collection.
Initializing her design process with the diamond, Jade uses clean lines to organically design around it to create a sentimental piece that accentuates the intrinsic beauty of the diamond, thus combining her family heritage and casual minimalism to actualize everyday wearable heirloom worthy pieces that highlight the wearer’s natural beauty.
A fifth generation diamantaire, Jade joined her grandfather’s diamond business in 1998, accumulating years of hands-on experience in the complex craftsmanship of diamond buying. She finally launched her own brand in 2012 as an antithetical reaction to the repetitive traditional designs she was constantly exposed to in the jewelry world.
