Happy Fourth of July

For sale by Christie's Auction House in France, on 7-8 July...given by President Washington to the Marquis Lafayette, it contains both his and Martha's hair.  It's expected to net between $2,500- $3,500.  

(Everyone in my family has said "Yuuuuuggghhhhh" to the idea of a ring with hair in it, even historical hair.  I think it's an amazing jewel.)

I like the design of the ring, though I agree with the bleah reaction to the historical hair...Mona
