|An apatite for high society Every two years since 1954, the wealthiest and most glamorous families from around the globe gather in the grand ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City for the International Debutante Ball. At this lavish affair, the young daughters of the world’s most prominent royal, noble, and wealthy families dress in elaborate white gowns and exquisite jewelry, and make their formal entry into polite society. This prestigious party is so exclusive, invitations are written in gold ink and near impossible to obtain. We’re throwing our own coming out party for what might be the best-kept secret in the jewelry industry � a mysterious stone discovered long ago, but rare in sizes over one carat and therefore difficult to create jewelry from. The Stauer Debutante Pendant & Chian showcases the intoxicating dark blue beauty of the mysterious apatite gemstone. The Debutante Pendant makes a grande, show-stopping entrance with an unmissable 14 �-carats of apatite. It hangs gracefully from an 18″ Gold-Vermeil Rope Chain. The result is a jewelry collection that delivers the luxury look of high society without the price tag or the need for a gilded-inked invitation. We’re thrilled that apatite is finally ready to take its rightful place in the jewelry world, and we cordially invite you to join us.
