The heart shape has been an artistic motif for millennia. During the Middle Ages in Europe the heart form became identified with love and romance. It was the famed New York Ad-man, Milton Glaser, who made the heart shape synonymous with the word love when he coined the phrase I ❤ NY.
(We❤ good NY trivia!)
Our Valentine's Day collection features a global assortment of heart elements, including genuine Czech pressed glass, vintage Murano millefiori pendants, garnet hearts hand-carved in India, and reproductions of historic pieces.
