The Wedding Ring Alexander Hamilton Gave To His Wife Eliza

I love history, and my favorite thing to read about is the personal stories of people from the past. Lately there has been a lot of publicity about Alexander Hamilton, who was the first Secretary of the Treasury of our country. 214 years after his death, we are still talking and reading about him, and enjoying the Broadway musical about his life. I came across a fascinating article about the wedding ring worn by Alexander's wife, Eliza.  Rings are the most personal of jewelry, and seeing this poignant memento of a long-ago love story is very touching. Read the story.

When it comes to fine jewelry trends, the use of non-traditional stones has grown in popularity. More shoppers are looking for styles that are unique, offer healing benefits, and promote positive energy. Diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds (the traditional precious stones) remain in high demand, but interest has recently swelled for "the new precious.” This term is used to define semi-precious stones such as garnets, lapis, tiger’s eye, and tourmaline.
