why beyond jade?

We go beyond East Meets West

We are storytellers of love, heritage and becoming. In East-Asian culture, jade is a symbol of life, harmony, and renewal. Traditionally, jade jewelry is passed down through generations of families. It is a sentimental heirloom that connects us with our roots. 

We're here to help you capture the joy in the in-between moments and cultures- while mixing eastern and western elements into a better version of ourselves. 

We go beyond
East Meets West

If I get to be me, I belong
