Meaning Behind Heart Jewelry: Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2023
What does an open heart symbolize in jewelry?
The heart symbol is one of the most popular and widely-used symbols in the world. It can be found on everything from jewelry, clothing, and accessories to home decor. The heart shape itself has been used as a symbol for centuries.
Egyptians believed that their hearts were connected to their souls and wore gold amulets in order to protect themselves from evil spirits. They believed that if someone stole their amulet, then they would die so they took great measures in protecting their valuables by locking them up at night time or wearing them on their person at all times.
Heart-shaped jewelry has always been a popular gift for Valentine's Day, but it can represent so much more than love. It can also symbolize friendship, family and connection. The open heart represents a gift that lasts a lifetime.

"Admittedly I never really liked heart jewelry until my team asked me to design one and I focused on the symbolism instead of the motif itself. I have heard my whole life that 'I wear my heart' and now I literally can with our heart Mini designs. The open silhouette represents being open about the things and people you love, shout it from the rooftops, wear it proudly. The design is understated yet evokes an emotion and every time you put it on you should think about what you love. So now, I am officially a fan of Misahara's heart jewelry. 😉" - Lepa Galeb-Roskopp
