Since having open heart surgery the heart symbol has been a big part of my life. I’ve acquired a few pendants now that are the stereotypical heart shape. However I’ve never seen anything quite like this necklace before, which is why I had to buy it.
At first it made me laugh. I did have to question whether or not I wanted an actual heart draped around my neck. But on second thoughts, it was exactly what I wanted.
With valentines day just passed, people seem to forget about what an actual heart looks like. We don’t have this cute, red, fluffy heart beating inside of us. No. As a matter of fact, we have something very different.
I understand that the symbol has more of a spiritual meaning, of love and compassion, rather than being mistaken as a heart. But nevertheless sometimes it’s good to be reminded about what we have inside of us.
The piece itself comes on a long silver chain in a cute little box. The pendant is quite heavy and the detail is exquisite.
I love to pair this necklace up with my triquetra choker. I think they look really good together.
If you’re into this kind of thing then I would definitely recommend you buy it. But I understand that having this heart around your neck isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
This necklace is not only an awesome piece of jewellery, it’s a symbol of what I’ve been through.
You can purchase it here through Amazon.
I ❤ it!
