With 20 years of experience as a diamond buyer, Jade remains intimately connected to the diamond selection process for each piece and still gets a rush each time she unfolds a parcel paper.
All Jade Trau diamonds are carefully and ethically sourced to ensure that you receive the highest quality stone while feeling good about where it came from. We exclusively use 100% genuine, natural diamonds; our philosophy is to honor the integrity and story of each diamond we work with and pay homage to the billions of years it takes for them to form under the earths surface. We meticulously source our diamonds to ensure they meet federal regulations through the Kimberley Process and adhere to our color and quality standards. We pride ourselves on the precision of the cut for every diamond we use in our designs to guarantee the maximum amount of brilliance and to allow the stone to reflect nearly all of the light that enters- generating exceptional sparkle and life.
We exclusively use real, solid 18-karat gold and platinum in our collections. Jade Trau is conscious of the environmental impact of metal sourcing and makes a conscious effort to use recycled gold for the majority of our pieces. With a focus on purity and integrity, our gold is only mixed with specialized alloys that serve to enhance it’s color and strength. Our selection of white, yellow, and pink golds have been carefully customized to obtain the perfect color that works in tandem with the brilliance of our diamonds. We utilize our signature matte finish on our signature yellow gold to create a luxurious yet casual feel for everyday wear. We introduced platinum to our line with the Harlow collection. In an ode to the authenticity of Art Deco design, our love of platinum comes from its weighty richness and the radiation of its white hue. Over time, platinum develops a gray wear, creating a uniquely vintage patina that only comes from a well-loved piece.
