Jewelry: Hearts Afire

<< Back to Robb Report, February 2002

The heart is the classic symbol of love, making it an enduring—yet often mundane—jewelry motif. But in the hands of the world’s most skilled jewelers, the conventional heart is transformed into glamorous, modern, and spirited designs that make a strong style statement while expressing romantic notions. A chunky heart ring or playful diamond and ruby heart earrings convey tender sentiments with bold flair. And when only words will do, a sizable gold heart pendant spells it out in diamond and ruby letters: L-O-V-E.
