The idea of the heart shape being linked to the concept of love developed in the 15th century. The shape itself dates back further and has been identified in paintings, texts, and other media. However, it probably wasn’t the heart that these artists were conceptualizing. This shape stemmed from the shape of fig leaves, pears, and ivy leaves, which were traditionally associated with fidelity.
This vintage American gold and diamond ring was handcrafted around 1960. It was made in 14 karat gold and is in the shape of a heart. Half of the heart is smothered in 34 round faceted diamonds that weigh approximately .55 carats altogether. The other half of the heart is polished gold. This romantic ring is a size 6 and it weighs a hefty 10.6 grams. The ring face measures 23 x 17.5 x 9 mm and the band width is 3 mm at the back. It has been acid tested.
This fabulous heart ring is the funky sparkly accessory with a retro twist you’ve been waiting for!
