Marquis de La Fayette renounced his title in 1790, traveled to the U.S. and enlisted to aid the struggling colonies.This romantic inscription is from a July 23, 1777 letter to his wife now in the collection of the NY Historical Society. The complete sentence reads: "O! if you knew how much I sigh to see you, how much I suffer at being separated from you, and all that my heart has been called on to endure, you would think me somewhat worthy of your love!" A perfect romantic inspirational jewelry gift to a loved one from whom one is separated even if only for a day.
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.
