|Two tickets to paradise The Stauer Islands Earrings are 80-carats of heavenly howlite, inspired by one of the worlds most breathtaking views. Ever since Plato wrote about Atlantis in 360 BC, foolhardy adventurers have been trying to locate the legendary lost city. Somewhere beneath the waves lie the remains of the once mighty ancient metropolis and many believe it’s just a matter of figuring out where. Which is how I found myself in a noisy but trustworthy single-propeller plane, 30,000 feet above a perfect blue-green sea dotted with countless unnamed and unspoiled sandy enclaves? We didn’t find Atlantis that day, but that unforgettable view of perfection gave me the idea for something even better. The Stauer Paradise Earrings feature big and beautiful stones of enhanced howlite. Each stone has been blessed with that tantalizingly turquoise ocean color and a naturally intricate pattern that both resembles and embodies my bird’s eye view of that mysterious tropical island paradise. You can almost hear the waves lapping gently at pristine shores as these glorious stones dangle from your ears. I’m so excited to share this with you that I may have gone a little overboard with the stones, which weigh an impressive total of 80-carats. Can you handle that much paradise? I’m confident you can, which is why we’re selling the Stauer Paradise Earrings at this exclusive price. If you can find a more affordable taste of unspoiled luxury, I encourage you to take it. As for Atlantis, I imagine I’ll resume my search next year. Not because I expect to find the lost city � no one ever does � but because I can’t wait to get that plane in the air for another glimpse of perfection.
