African Gem Cutter Makes $2,689,000 Mistake...Will You?
Allegedly, just two years after the discovery of tanzanite in 1967, a Maasai tribesman knocked on the door of a gem cutter's office in Nairobi. The Maasai had brought along an enormous chunk of tanzanite and was looking to sell. His asking price? Fifty dollars. But the gem cutter was suspicious and assumed that a stone so large could only be glass. He told the tribesman, no thanks. Huge mistake. It turns out that the gem was genuine and based on common pricing, that "chunk" could have been worth close to $3,000,000!
Would you have made the same mistake? Will you make it today?
Tanzanite has become one of the world's most coveted gemstones. Found in only one place on Earth (in Tanzania's remote Merelani Hills, in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro), the precious purple stone is 1,000 times rarer than diamonds. Luxury retailers have been warning that supplies of tanzanite will not last forever. And in this case, they're right. Most believe we only have a few years left. Some along Fifth Avenue are more than happy to charge you outrageous prices for this rarity. Not Stauer. Staying true to our contrarian nature, we've decided to lower the price of one of the world's rarest gemstones.
Sunburst Genuine Tanzanite Ring (2 ctw)
Our 2-Carat Sunburst Tanzanite Ring features marquise-cut gems set in gorgeous sterling silver. Each facet sparkles with the distinct violet-blue hue of the precious stones. Behind the shine you'll find that the exquisite silverwork of the setting calls to mind the treasures being produced by Europe's finest jewelers. This is a ring designed to impress and it does not disappoint. You can own this spectacular ring for less than $100. But, please don't wait. Our supply is dropping rapidly.$79.003.9/5 (20)

The new look of old-fashioned luxury features genuine blue sapphire and DiamondAura
She stepped out of the limo looking more beautiful than anything I'd ever seen. It was as if time almost stopped. Flash bulbs popped more slowly. Excited screams turned to whispers. And I couldn't take my eyes off her. The dress. Her hair. Those eyes. And that ring! Or so my grandfather always told it. He saw a Hollywood starlet at a movie premier once, and it was as though he'd been in the presence of a goddess. That's how it was back then. They were just classier and more glamorous than the stars of today. And a lot of that had to do with the still-unmatched sense of style that was so prominent. You just can't go wrong with art deco.
And so we've created The Spire. This is the Chrysler Building of rings. An art deco masterpiece, the smooth lines and geometric angles of this ring glisten and gleam in dazzling .925 sterling silver. This kind of shine would have been right at home on the hand of any of Hollywood's prettiest in the 1930's. It shimmers with the white flash of 14 brilliant DiamondAura rounds that exceed the fire of "D" flawless diamonds, with no inclusions. And its six carefully hand calibrated (an extremely time-intensive art deco technique), channel-set square cut natural sapphires glow like a deep blue sky just after sunset. Intricate silver bead-work and details add that final touch of 30s charm.
The Spire is proof that you can teach an old ring new tricks!$159.00

I love precious metals. Honestly I do. But sometimes when designing a piece of men's jewelry, I crave something tougher, something less... precious. Once I found tungsten, it was love at first sight. But not that sappy, romantic kind of love where you hear birds chirping and harps playing. I heard music, but it was more like heavy metal guitar. Crunching riffs and thundering drums. Any chirping birds were drowned out by the sounds of bullets, explosions and rockets. Maybe I'm getting carried away, but that's just what happens when you fall in love.
Seriously, where has this metal been all my life? Named for the old Swedish word for "heavy stone," tungsten is four times harder than titanium and 71% denser than lead. It's so tough that when they need to cut it and polish it they have to use diamonds... the hardest substance on Earth! It's the very same metal that goes into armor-piercing ammunition and the fuel nozzles of skyscraper-sized rockets.
Can it handle a life of luxury? Of course. Even as a polished piece of fine jewelry it remains an overachiever. Unlike other fine metals, the spectacular polish and shine will never dull. And if you're a fan of wide men's rings, you're going to be amazed by how well this ring balances a heavyweight feel with "forget-your-wearing-it" comfort. Added details include a handsome beveled-edge and the a carbon fiber and gold tone chain link inlay. The perfect symbol of a relationship built to last.

Plus receive FREE earrings with purchase of the 5-Stone DiamondAura Ring.
You've probably heard legends of India's infamous Maharajahs. Indulgent royalty who lounged in gilded gold palaces, positively swaddled in precious gems and perfect pearls. Extravagance at its most vulgar. Today that flair for the dramatic shows up on the streets of Europe in the form of diamond-studded cell phones, $30,000 handbags and quarter-million-dollar sports cars.
Personally, I've always been a fan of more understated opulence. Take our stunning 5-Stone DiamondAura Ring, a classy, elegant alternative for those special occasions when a lonely solitaire will not suffice. The 5-Stone Ring features a quintet of round-cut, lab-created DiamondAura, prong-set in the finest .925 sterling silver. The 2-1/3 carats of dazzling DiamondAura form a brilliant band of fiery facets and impeccable geometry.
Thanks to years of research and millions of investment dollars, we are able to emulate the world's most beautiful natural diamonds without the outrageous cost. Which means that you're free to flaunt a gorgeous piece of bling, secure in the knowledge that you didn't have to take out a second mortgage to impress the masses.$99.00

Harvest time in the Cognac region of France. We're in the middle of a walking tour of the brandy vineyards. Big names, little names and every one in between. The trick is to pace yourself. These grapes have been here since the Romans planted them 2000 years ago. They aren't going anywhere.
Walking upstairs from the still cellar, wandering through the vaulted stone hallways of the 11th century castle-I can't wait to get outside. The old copper stills were impressive, but what I'm looking forward to is a taste. We sit in the courtyard, walls thick with ivy. I swirl the brandy in my fat glass. A sniff, then a sip. It tastes like pure gold and sunshine. I may never leave.
Inspired by the art and science of crafting a fine aged brandy, we created the Cognac Ring. At the center, an impressive 9-3/4 carat, lab-created DiamondAura. The cushion-cut, brandy-colored centerpiece sits high on a four-pronged gold vermeil setting. On either side, two half-moon white DiamondAura fit snug against the pale golden superstar. Cognac-colored diamonds are incredibly rare and have shot up in value over the years. Our goal was to match the subtle color of prized natural stones that can fetch upwards of $15,000 per carat. After close inspection of the Cognac Ring, I'm proud to say that I can raise a glass and offer a toast to our glowing success.$149.00

Wallis Simpson didn't invent the royal scandal, she just perfected it. After winning the heart of the Prince of Wales, the American socialite stirred up so much controversy that the prince was forced to surrender the throne. But in the aftermath, it seemed all she cared about was jewelry. The Duchess of Windsor went on to amass a collection of precious gems that has yet to be matched. In addition to owning some of the most important designs of the 20th century, the iconic Duchess made luxury history with custom-made masterpieces from the world's most celebrated jewelers. Luckily, you don't need a king's coffers to afford our own Windsor creations.
We're offering our 2-1/2 carat lab-created sapphire ring, prong-set in tarnish-resistant sterling silver at our absolute lowest price ever. It's surrounded by a cortege of Scientifically grown DiamondAura. For replete regal effect, add the 3-1/4 ctw lab created sapphire earrings and the 2-1/2 ctw lab-created sapphire pendant on 18" sterling silver chain. A shocking price worthy of a royal scandal!

In the early Renaissance Age, opals were said to bring good fortune to the wearer because they possessed all of the colors and powers of every gemstone. But it was Queen Victoria, who especially loved her opals and often gave them as gifts to her family, who let this beautiful gemstone gain its spot among the most cherished of gems. To pay proper homage to this luminous beauty, the 2-7/8 carat oval cabochon in this ring nestles within the embrace of two millegrain-edged chevrons accented with lab created DiamondAura stones.
Opal is the only gemstone that changes color and pattern right in your hand; every opal is varied and unique. Our hand-selected opal ring's color play, with its pinfire flashes of iridescent pinks and greens, blues, and turquoises emanates a very special attraction and fascination.
Opal is a mineral found in areas where ancient geothermal hot springs once existed. Ancient Romans called the magnificent gemstone "Cupid Paederos," meaning a child as beautiful as love. Opals were routinely set into the crowns and necklaces of rulers who believed the protective powers of the gemstones would ward off evil. They believed it to be the "king of gems" because an opal holds within its fire all the colors of the rainbow...and all other gems, as well. And like many birthstones, opals (October) were treasured by ancient monarchs for their appearance and their powers.
The Stauer Opal Ring is set in 14K gold fused over .925 sterling silver. Opal rings can retail for well over $1,200 but our clients have told us that they are thrilled with our 2-7/8 carat stone for much less.$297.00

A stunning 4 carat Scienza Lab-created Emerald Centerpiece layered in luxurious platinum.
Beware the green-eyed monsters. They can see the color of this ring from across the room. Flashes of gorgeous green that usually only show up around spring. Even then, only in the deepest parts of the Brazilian rainforest. As green as they've ever seen. Let them whisper. Let them wonder. Maybe you did strike the lottery or inherit some small fortune. Whatever the case, you know something they don't. Specifically, that science has found a way to build a better emerald.
It's true. The mineral composition, heat and pressure of Scienza are all controlled in the laboratory, so the scientifically grown emeralds have more luster and brilliance than most mined stones. Scienza emeralds are identical to the natural gem in every way: color, sparkle, hardness, and composition. The one big difference is price. Our Verde Ring features a stunning 4-carat Scienza lab-created emerald centerpiece. The emerald-cut lab stone is set in the finest platinum-layered, .925 sterling silver. Both shoulders absolutely sparkle with a dozen lab-created DiamondAura baguettes and 30 brilliant DiamondAura rounds. Each row of white stones is lined with exquisite silverwork that only enhances the ring's overall brilliance. Jealousy never looked so good!

Walking the London street better known as the "golden mile of tailoring," you see a devotion to luxury detail in every shop window, every stitch, every immaculate seam. Savile Row is the neighborhood of gentleman tailors who cut cloth for royals and rock stars. This is where Winston Churchill and Napoleon III came for suits. This is where our 14K Onyx and Diamond Ring feels right at home.
Our designer drew inspiration from some of the district's one-of-a-kind gold and gemstone cufflinks to craft the ultimate gentleman's accessory.
By taking a luxury accent off the cuff and putting it on your finger, we've created the men's jewelry equivalent of a custom-tailored, three-piece suit. The handsome, flared band of 14K yellow gold showcases a polished, barrel-cut black onyx. And the brushed gold shoulders wink back with a diamond accent on each side, adding just a dash of ostentatious, opulent sparkle. This is definitely a ring that can hold its own among history's most fashionable finery. Jacket not required.$795.00

There was nothing special about the boat. And that made it perfect. I was looking for the deep sea fishing experience I'd never had before, to visit the ledges and wrecks where commercial charters rarely go. I got all that and more. Captain Hombre looked the part. Scruffy beard. Cigarette dangling from his lips. And he certainly knew what he was doing. As we headed out, the sky turned black and the ocean churned. Other boats scrambled to get back in, but Hombre just kept pushing. When I suggested returning, all he said was, "It'll pass."
He was right. And I have the photo of a 6-foot shark to prove it. So, in Hombre's honor I've decided to offer the Black Onyx Mako Ring. Simple. Strong. And as black as the sky turned that day. The onyx is a rectangular-cut cabochon set in robustly constructed .925 sterling silver. Around its base we've wound an 18K gold-plated rope accent, and along its stout shoulders we've included detailed silver work reminiscent of the clouds and fish that are such a large part of a captain's life. The inside of the ring is just as striking, with the same silver work embellishing the band beneath the steadfast onyx above. Every time I glance at that picture with my trophy fish, I think of Hombre. And now every time I wear this ring, I will do the same.

That's the theory according to Ovid. Who's Ovid? Only Ancient Rome's most celebrated romantic poet. He's the man who penned The Art of Love, way back when counting the years only took two digits. His words are funny, frank and wise beyond his years. The classic poems are full of sage advice that hasn't aged a day. He wrote, "ring her courtesies, and flattering words, and endearments." And he authored two of my favorite lines...
"Here is something for you!"
"A man who can say that has genius."
It's hard to believe that more than 2000 years ago, Ovid proved my theory that truly gifted men make the best gift-givers. Anyone can pick out a ring at random. But I'm convinced that it takes talent and intelligence to find a piece of jewelry that really means something. Today I'm making it easy for you.
These rings were made for each other. At the center of the ring you'll find a stunning 3-carat, lab-created DiamondAura marquise set in the finest .925 sterling silver. The sleek cut dazzles with even more fire than a mined diamond and is buffeted by over a full carat of lab-created DiamondAura baguettes and brilliant-cut rounds. The thinner, anniversary band is crafted of sterling silver and blazes with 11 prong-set DiamondAura.
The band is ingeniously-shaped to fit comfortably atop the ring.

At first glance, the rolling green hills of the English countryside look perfectly ordinary. But look closer and you'll find that they hide some of history's greatest secrets. Not far from the remaining sections of Hadrian's Wall, (built by the Roman Emperor in the Second Century), these hills hosted fierce battles between the Celtic Britons and the invading Saxons. Heroes clashed and history was made. No doubt countless artifacts were lost in combat, only to be rediscovered as buried treasure centuries later.
British museums are filled with the elaborately decorated weapons and jewelry of those ancient Celtic warriors. Browsing their impressive collections was where I found inspiration for the design of our Celtic Warrior Ring. This is a real man's ring, hefty and wide and forged of sturdy sterling silver. The expertly etched, Celtic-inspired designs wrap completely around the outside of the band and culminate in a regal cross design set inside an ornate square frame. The details are made even bolder by the oxidation process used to mimic the look of a relic lost long ago. Inside the band, we've set a single lab-created DiamondAura, a traditional touch meant to symbolize a faraway love held close by constant contact with the skin. Secret proof that this old soldier is really a romantic at heart.$199.00
