Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is time to decide what to get your Valentine for this special day. Just like in previous years, many people are choosing to give jewelry this time, necklaces in particular. Of the many styles on the market there is one piece that has been a favorite of young and old for many years and that is a key to my heart necklace. The style has changed over decades but the meaning is still the same. The Necklace For Valentine’s Day is meant to be a romantic sentiment to a special someone. Traditionally they were given in love to someone special and the meaning behind them spoke loud and clear to the receiver’s spirit.
So where did they come from? Well, many years ago these pendants were simply made to look like a small heart that had a cut out notch and key that was hanging with it on a chain. Although plain to look at these tiny pendants still had deep felt meaning. What started out as a high school fad soon became the norm on special occasions like Valentine’s Day.
Today’s jewelry is different, but only a little so. The closest to the classic necklace is a chain with a gold heart shaped pad lock and a ring of 4 keys hanging on the padlock itself. Each of these keys has a birthstone which makes them a great gift for mothers on Mother’s Day. There is room to engrave a loving sentiment on the back of the pendant.
As these unique necklaces have evolved through the years, they became more ornate with jewels, much larger, regally elegant and have many different designs and styles. It does not matter how they have changed, the necklace still means one thing to the one that is receiving it, and “I love you”. So this year, find the love of your life a key to my heart necklace for this Valentines Day celebration.
