Piece of the Week: Jade Trau’s ‘Billie’ Ring
The statement style is an inventive take on an ID bracelet.
Also present in her collection as an ID tag, now, Trau has adapted the best-selling piece into an entirely unique silhouette.
Meet the “Billie” ring. It’s a statement ring inspired by its engravable ID bracelet predecessor, transforming the hexagonal shape into a bold, right-hand style.
Just as the ID bracelet and Billie ID tag are meant to anchor a wrist or neck stack, respectively, the Billie ring can be worn with skinnier styles. The impactful jewel isn’t lacking in drama, however, and packs a punch worn on its own.
Crafted in 18-karat yellow gold (seen below), white gold, or rose gold (pictured at top), the ring features 0.58 carats of diamonds. It sells for $6,000 on JadeTrau.com.
