O! I Sigh To See You

The 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 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 a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.


mobius
The mobius is our signature shape and we were one of the first jewelers to deduce how to reproduce it via the lost wax casting method. Named after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868], the mobius represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end or one of infinite length. As such, it became accepted as a symbol for infinity. The oval mobius bracelets fit comfortably, turning easily on the wrist, so that the wearer can be reminded of the message at a glance. The single mobius necklace moves on the chain when worn, changing its appearance continually, while the message remains constant. Our new double mobius necklace with its flowing, complex shape is an exciting addition to the collection, allowing for a longer message than the single mobius. The engraved message on these pieces repeats around the plane into infinity.
