Love Is In the Air: Love and Heart-Themed Pieces
In ancient Greek literature, character traits such as courage, love and reason were associated with physical parts of the body, such as the heart, lungs and head. It wasn’t until the Middle Ages that the heart shaped symbol we use today to represent the epicenter of love came into existence. While not actually shaped like a physical heart, this moniker of true love can now be found everywhere in February. Love is in the air, so we’ve assembled a list of great love and heart-themed pieces that would make fantastic gifts for that special someone this Valentine’s Day or all year round!
If you’re in a new relationship or jewelry is not an option, you can never go wrong with a work of art. Ferntree Studio’s “You Fill Up My Heart” 8x10 Fine Art Print comes in a variety of colors and is printed on Moab Somerset velvet enhanced paper. Have it framed, and we guarantee your Valentine will never take it down. (pictured above)
Urban Moss’ All Heart Pendant Necklace is a silver plane with a beautiful impression of wild grasses. Its rustic charm will make a timeless gift that your special someone will adore. Complement this heart-shaped charm with Lucie Veilleux’s “I Heart You” lightweight stud earrings.
If your Valentine is more literal or has a great sense of humor, gift them with Avant Garde Design’s Anatomical Heart Pendant Necklace. It comes on a long chain with a lobster clasp, and the heart opens in half. This designer also has a Silver Toned Heart Rhythm EKG Pendant Necklace, another great play on the traditional “heart.”
