At the heart of Emmy's craft lies simplicity and beauty. Growing up in Southern California, she felt drawn to art and design even as a child. At university, she switched her major from Fine Arts to Business, which led her down a different career path than the one she envisioned growing up. 
When family reasons prompted her to take some time off, she had the opportunity to reflect on the question she asked herself during her college days: "What do I want to be when I grow up?" It wasn't long before her artistic passion started tugging at her again. She found herself curating gorgeous stones and piecing together modern, yet timeless necklaces. Soon after, Emmy's handmade pieces attracted the attention of strangers and friends, who began adorning themselves with her jewelry. In October of 2014, ETJ was born. 
Emmy now spends her time between Vancouver, BC, and Seattle, WA. She pulls inspiration from her travels near and far and aligns it with the casual elegance of the Pacific Northwest she now calls home. Emmy believes that each piece of jewelry tells a story and can make you look and feel beautiful every time you wear it.


The ETJ collection is designed for women who desire simplicity and modern elegance, viewing jewelry as an essential part of their wardrobe, like a favorite pair of sunglasses. In contrast to the current world of fast-fashion, ETJ appeals to women who prefer quality over quantity. These pieces highlight classic elements through contemporary design. Our goal is to create versatile jewelry that integrate with your wardrobe, transcend trends, and effortlessly elevate you look.

We use precious and semi-precious stones with gold-filled, sterling silver, and bronze to create modern jewelry that exudes a hint of sexy femininity. Inspired by architecture and nature, Emmy Trinh Jewelry is a reflection of geometric design and the visual elements of the west coast. 

Handcrafted in Vancouver with thought and care, Emmy's unique and captivating pieces are designed to be a part of your timeless jewelry collection.


Emmy believes in giving back to the community and supporting organizations that help empower women. Thanks to your purchases, below are the programs ETJ has recently contributed to:
Y.E.S. Vancouver Our vision is to provide the most innovative, fresh and meaningful networking events for professional women in Vancouver while raising money to help other women get the help they need to advance their careers and livelihood.

REST was founded in November 2009 by a small team of women with experience dealing with troubled youth and sexual abuse issues, and other members of the team with backgrounds in wraparound services and case management to develop relationships with people being commercially sexually exploited (trafficked), or otherwise engaged in the sex trade or are at risk to enter. Our goal was to help them find a path to freedom.
