Regarded as symbol of love, controversy exists regarding the origins of the actual 'heart' shape. The most romantic version comes from the ancient Greek, who believed the shape of a heart came from the back and wings of a dove, associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. In Novica's collection of heart necklaces and chokers you will find heart pendants shaped from faceted gemstones, filigree, gold vermeil, silver, and art glass – each designed to suit your personal style.
Garnet, used for giving and receiving love, guards secret loves in a sterling silver heart locket. A filigree heart necklace – in fine silver or plated in gold – can be paired with filigree earrings, creating a spectacular set.
For those who believe in the mystical powers of gemstones, Novica's collection of heart necklaces includes love stones. Shaped like hearts or studded in silver and gold, these stones include rose quartz, hematite, jade, turquoise, pink opal, chrysocolla, and of course, ruby. Given as a promise of love, a heart necklace from an artisan silversmith across the world is to be treasured as a precious anniversary or Valetine's Day gift.
