About Us

Our Story

TRACE is a modern jade jewelry design house.

Our company was founded by two cousins, inspired by their grandfather's jewelry business from the 1950s. These mom-and-pop jewelry shops were where they spent their childhood days and first learned about jade.

Our designs give a contemporary twist to the classic precious stone. Featuring clean, minimal lines, our jewelry is the opposite of conservative. We represent a rebellious yet elegant attitude, defying the traditional jade bangle to carve out something unique.

Our Jade

Jade is one of the most treasured gemstones in China and throughout Asia for its beauty and symbolism. Cool to touch yet warm to look at, jade is a symbol of prosperity and good luck.

Jade is classified into jadeite and nephrite. At TRACE, we offer jewelry made of jadeite, which is the more lustrous, translucent, and valuable form of jade. Our jadeites are natural without being subjected to any kind of chemical treatment and are individually hand-cut. That is why each piece is one-of-a-kind in its own color and shape.
