Ah, the heart. An anatomically incorrect doodle of puppy love everywhere. What you may not know is that this symbol dates back hundreds of years. While the shape itself appears all the way back to the 13th century, the association with love and attachment wasn’t applied until the 15th century. And it even took a couple hundred years after that for it to be recognized solely as a mainstream indication of romance.

During the Georgian Era, there was a trend of carving precious gemstones into heart shaped and setting them as central motifs in rings. These rings were more often than not used as engagement rings. We love the straightforwardness of this; a let’s not beat around the bush way of saying I love you and I want everybody to know it. Wear this as a way of remembering that and letting people.

This gorgeous Georgian Heart Ring goes one step further. It features an emerald and pearl crown upon the garnet heart, another not so subtle way of saying “You are the ruler of my heart”. The crowned heart itself represent loyalty in love and even the stone choices bear messages. Garnets carry notions of love and affection, pearls indicate harmony and purity, and emeralds symbolize hope. It’s easy to see that this ring was originally a truly sentimental engagement ring, and we think it would be a pretty cool alternative engagement ring today, or at least a strong and forthright token of love.
