Description

DATE: Edwardian, 1902

An attractive antique puffed Witch's Heart pendant dating from the Edwardian period. It's crafted in 9 karat rose gold with English hallmarks dating it to the year 1902.

The Witch's Heart (or sometimes witches heart) was popular throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, notable for its curved point at the bottom. Obviously infused with meaning, as such symbols always were, it suggested that the giver had become "bewitched" to fall in love with the recipient... and in ancient times the heart was allegedly used to ward off witches and other evil spirits.
