Romantic but un-fussy, nostalgic but not at all old-fashioned—Jade Trau knows how to strike exactly the right design balance for today’s fine jewelry customer.

Designer Jade Lustig took home a Couture Design Award in the “Best in Bridal” category this year, but her daily jewelry staples she shared at the jewelry trade show were arguably just as enticing.

Locks and keys are classic motifs that felt fresh in Lustig’s hands.

This Catherine Key Charm, available on the designer’s website for $3,200, is rendered in 18-karat yellow gold with 0.34 carats of white diamonds.

Like many Jade Trau pieces, it’s available for engraving.
