The entrance is unmarked, and that’s no accident. You knock three times — no more, no less. The grate swooshes open and a simple question is asked. You give the password. The door creaks open and you step inside, leaving the dry, dreary laws of Prohibition behind as you enter a warm welcome of cocktails, jazz, dancing, and just a hint of danger that you might get caught.
The Speakeasy Ring is designed to celebrate the halcyon days of the Roaring Twenties, when a night out on the town was all the more exciting for being ever-so-slightly illegal. The elegance of a cultured freshwater pearl, the dazzle of white topaz, and the glowing green of genuine Zambian emeralds combine for a heady mixture of high-end Jazz Age style. This particular Speakeasy is fully above board, but captures the intoxicating decadence of those that were not.
I’m happy to share the Stauer password with you, because it’s the same word we use when selecting our jewelry: value. That’s why the combo of pearls, topaz and emeralds is priced just right. Is it perhaps a little indulgent? You bet it is.
