Queen of hearts

An eternally popular motif in jewellery design and a deeply romantic gift, browse our edit of stylish heart jewels for Valentine's Day.

Poiray Coeur Entrelacé pendant

Nobody needs telling that hearts are the ultimate symbol of love. They’re everywhere we look, emblazoned on t-shirts and tattooed on skin. And in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, they’re inescapable.

But while it is the most-used motif to denote love – where would we be without the heart emoji on social media? – it is especially romantic when it appears in jewellery form, a tradition that dates back centuries.

Scroll through our Valentine’s jewellery edit for heart-shaped inspiration, send a subtle hint by sharing your favourites or visit our shop for other great gift ideas.
