About this item

I meet you in every dream

This modern sterling silver bracelet is inscribed with a delightful quotation from Hamilton's intimate letter to Elizabeth Schuyler, dated Oct. 5, 1780, only a few weeks before their marriage. The shape of the disc is a modern interpretation of the ancient form known as the Chinese pi, a circle within a circle, considered to have a vital, life-giving force and a perfect choice to inform this heart-warming bracelet. Created by the New-York Historical Society, the bracelet measures 7 inches and comes in a gift box with historical information on Alexander Hamilton. Made in the United States by dvb New York.

Few figures in the history of the United States have left such a profound legacy as that of Alexander Hamilton, America's first Secretary to the Treasury. His letter to Elizabeth Schuyler displays his elegance as a wordsmith, his charm and his humanity, often forgotten among the great issues of financial and military history for which he is best remembered.

Hamilton's complete sentence read: "I meet you in every dream - and when I wake I cannot close my eyes again for ruminating on your sweetnesses."

Dimensions: 1" diameter pendant, 7" bracelet chain
Made in New York City, USA
