From modest beginnings, this controversial Revolutionary figure, Alexander Hamilton, would ultimately become the first Secretary to the Treasury in 1789. The sterling silver necklace pictured here is inscribed with a quotation from Hamilton's intimate letter, now in the New York Historical Society, to Elizabeth Schuyler, the daughter of one of New York's most influential families, only a few weeks before their marriage in 1780. It displays his elegance as a wordsmith along with his charm and will certainly have an effect on a modern day Valentine. The necklace is also inspired by Broadway's new hit musical, Hamilton, now playing at the Richard Rodgers Theater.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
Laurel Elliott's Pi Disc is a modern interpretation of the ancient Chinese form of a circle within a circle, an enduring symbol of nobility, purity, constancy and eternity. The circle having no end is itself a symbol of infinity. Its classic shape looks beautiful when worn, moving easily from day to night. The chain can be knotted on the disc or simply slipped though the open circle providing an additional 2" in length. It also can be used without a chain as a touchstone or keepsake for the pocket, desk or nightstand.
