A consummate lover of art and music, Louisa Adams (wife of President John Quincy Adams) was known across Washington, DC as America’s hostess. The first First Lady born outside of the United States, Louisa opened up the White House for musical delights and public performances. Her preludes on the harp and her dalliance in music and verse composition captivated the hearts of a nation.
For an enchanting evening of ballet or opera at the Kennedy Center, the Louisa signature case includes:
- The Spey Curve earrings and matching pendant
- A double strand bracelet of freshwater pearls
- A wool wrap to combat the chill of the theatre
