Hearts are an incredibly popular motif in jewelry, mainly because hearts symbolize love. And I do love hearts! My family knows that well, seeing as the only kind of Christmas ornaments I own are all hearts! (And I get made fun of for having a Valentine’s Day Christmas tree). I wouldn’t say it is my favorite jewelry motif, but for some reason I have amassed a nice little collection. They are seen here resting on a mother-of-pearl seashell dish purchased at a boutique in Laguna Beach.
Most of my heart charms are either 18k or 14k yellow gold. A few are from Italy given to me by my grandparents on their frequent trips. The puffed heart that has been dented pretty badly was worn for months straight, dangling from a bracelet. I think the dent gives it character, I like it even more than “pre-dent” heart. Love the heart-key charm, I like to wear it on a gold chain with the heart furthest to the left.

Dont feel guilty. I do the same thing with everything I buy. I look in my closet and all my bags have chain handles, or find all my shoes are brown. As far as jewelry goes I would say my most of my jewelry is ocean inspired. I have dolphin earrings, sea shell pendants, pearl rings etc. I love hearts too but only own 1 pair of earrings and a pendant.

It is an amazing challenge to capture all of a person’s work in one image, and some great successes occurred. Some of my favorites were Madonna, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Harry Winston, Naomi Campbell, Coco Chanel, Noel Coward, and Rudi Gernreich.Thanks for this nice info here http://www.zoppinicharms.co.uk
