From Zambia, with love
Zambian emeralds in sterling silver to sweep her off her feet
“Do you expect me to talk?” “Only if you value your life Mr. Stauer.” I’d been in some close shaves before, but this one really took the cake. Henchmen to the left of me, $3 billion in emeralds to my right, and dead center–– an atomic death ray.
The man with his finger on the switch? Johannes Greenfinger, a criminal mastermind with an emerald obsession. I’d been continent hopping for the past three weeks trying to find him, only to have my cover blown by an Austrian double-agent (I always was a sucker for blondes).
“Greenfinger,” I said as the death ray began to power up. “I have a secret for you.” “A secret agent with a secret? Trust me, there is nothing you can tell me that I don’t already know.” “Actually, I have a hot tip from my jeweler. He said it was for my eyes only,” I explained. “As beautiful as your Columbian emeralds are, you would have done better with emeralds from Zambia.”
I went on to explain that Zambian emeralds are more beautiful than Columbian ones, how they have better clarity and are a striking vivid green. The secret is that they’re more affordable than Columbian ones; for the same amount of money, he could have had more than ten times the emeralds! The secret did the trick, and Greenfinger let me go with an apology. “Live and let live,” I said.
Now it’s your turn to partake a deal worthy of any international supervillain, because you only live once, and, I must say, emeralds are forever.
