What You Should Know: Shell is authentic and in great condition.

During the Victorian Era, physical tokens of love and sentiment were exchanged between family, friends, and lovers more so than any other time period. Perhaps this is because society had established it almost indecent to talk of such things publically, people felt inspired to express their feelings through tangible gestures. Jewelry was the perfect medium.

 We adore this Victorian charm for this exact reason. Was it a secret “I love you” spoken through a heart shape given to a new beau? Could it have been a little treasure given to a mother’s youngest child? The not anatomically correct heart shape we know and love today was widely popularized during the 18th and 19th centuries (even though it dates back much farther) drawn into love letters and Valentine’s Day cards. We like to imagine this antique shell set with a 10k rose gold heart was one of these affectionate expressions, made to last forever.
