In the 13th Century, Venetian traveler Marco Polo returned from the Orient with wild tales of adventure. His fantastic stories were put into a book that the Italians called Il Milione because it was said to contain a million lies. While some of Marco Polo’s amazing stories may have been make believe, the treasures that traveled the Silk Road were very real. This historic trade route created a link between Europe and Asia and gave rise to the richest civilizations on Earth.
Today you can wear these unique earrings that link you directly to that luxurious past. The Stauer Strata Earrings continue a long tradition of fine Italian craftsmanship. Inspired by the luxurious fabrics traded along the Silk Road, the Italian goldsmiths behind these earrings used centuries of metalsmithing tradition to craft delicate links of gold that feel more like woven silk. We’ve never seen earrings with such fluid elegance. The links are so smooth and light they are like liquid metal that caresses the skin.
Yes, it sounds like another of Marco Polo’s unbelievable tales, but these Italian-crafted Strata Earrings are as real as they are remarkable.
