1) Romantic quote pendant and bracelet– Available from the New York Times Store and from the New York Historical Society. This pendant was created by the New York Historical Society and features a quote from Hamilton to his wife, Elizabeth, in Hamilton’s October 5, 1780 letter. The letter was written a few months before the two married on December 14, 1780. The quote on the pendant states: “I meet you in every dream – and when I wake I cannot close my eyes again for ruminating on your sweetnesses.” For full context, here is the complete paragraph in which the sentence appears:
“I have told you, and I told you truly that I love you too much. You engross my thoughts too intirely to allow me to think of any thing else. You not only employ my mind all day; but you intrude upon my sleep. I meet you in every dream-and when I wake I cannot close my eyes again for ruminating on your sweetnesses. ‘Tis a pretty story indeed that I am to be thus monopolized, by a little nut-brown maid like you-and from a statesman and a soldier metamorphosed into a puny lover. I believe in my soul you are an inchantress.”
2) Cufflinks– Hamilton $10 bill cufflinks available from Etsy. Because nothing projects financial success like going into an interview with Hamilton cufflinks.
