The heart symbol, with its two scallops on top and V-shaped point at the bottom, is one of the world’s most familiar emblems. Since the ancient Greek and Roman eras, the heart has been viewed as the "home" of love.
At no other time was the heart shape so popular as during the Victorian era. Queen Victoria was particularly fond of jewelery, and owned numerous heart shaped jewels, including a charm bracelet with a heart shaped charm representing each of her children. This Romantic Movement, with its focus on emotion and sentimentality was reflected in the jewellery of the time, hearts being one of the favourite motifs.
Today the heart is widely accepted as the definitive symbol of love. A heart shaped jewel is the ultimate way to express one’s feelings on the day of the celebration of love, Valentine’s Day.
Here we have a sweet pendant cast from a love token featuring four hearts in a cross formation. The blank back holds the metal purity mark, with enough room for you to engrave your pendant to add further sentiment to this adorable piece.
The pendant measures 16.5 MM across, and 30 MM long, including the openable diamond bale. Pendants are made to order; please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.
