ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
YǏN隐was founded by two professional women, for professional Gentlewomen.
The two ladies’partnership has evolved from colleagues of a global branding and PR agency to entrepreneurs of solving a practical challenges and contribute more via gold jewelries.
The two well-travelled cofounders grew up in two different parts of northern China. The harsh land, mountain and ocean carved their persistence and resilience, also shaped their perception of the nature fundamentals. They were also endowed with serenity, inclusiveness and a sense of humour by the rich cultural and historical heritages of the capital city where dynasties iterated over thousands of years. This ever-changing and currently impatiently developing social landscape was the inherent drive that why they always appreciate timeless beauty.

OUR BRAND IDEA
YǏN隐is very definite in its stand of TIMELESS, SUBTLE, GOLD jewelries.
In China, for centuries gold and gold jewelries are the essentials for marriage and as identify of fortune. Only the bulky size and weight matter. There was no respect, no aesthetics value or the affective commitment between the gold pieces and the wearer. Gold can be something other than granny, cheesy or nouveau riche exclusive. We feel the calling of revitalizing gold to be simple, skinny, modern and fits urban taste, and we were urged by the need to achieve this goal by jewelries.
