Why Is Heart Shaped Jewellery so Popular? 

This symbol isn't something new to us. Since our childhood, it has been our go-to option whenever we felt short of words. Our first art or doodle in a boring class probably. Or our first expression of butterflies as we wrote our name initials with a ‘+’ enclosed in this same heart shape. Remember times when adding multiple heart emojis to the sms never felt enough? 

We all grew up and have found different ways to express emotions — but, this heart shape keeps coming back whenever we find ‘love in the air’. Therefore, jewellery adorned with heart-shaped gemstones, heart motifs or patterns is regarded as the ultimate way to express one’s feelings. It's like declaring   vulnerability and courage by wearing love’s emblem! 

All About the Cutest Shape! 

It's no surprise that this symbol serves as the primary inspiration for numerous jewellery collections, especially around Valentine’s Day. Fortunately, talented designers worldwide have reimagined this timeless shape into a plethora of captivating pieces. Some choose heart-cut gemstones, with a surprisingly long history dating back to the 16th century, a period of courtly love and chivalry. During this era, brave knights expressed affection by presenting entwined and double heart lockets.

Are you wondering why this shape is called “heart” when the science books illustrated a different shape for the pumping organ?
