Diamond Heart Necklaces & Pendants

A diamond heart necklace offers a blend of luxury and love, its shape and shine a symbol of universal and eternal affection whose origins date as far back as the Ice Age. Images reminiscent of hearts, in fact, appear as early as Paleolithic era pictographs.

Over time, the connotations of the heart became central to the great cultures of the ancient world, as they believed the heart was the emotional nexus of the being. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks of the Mediterranean and the Aztec cultures in North America believed that the heart comprised parts of the soul and therefore were connected to our experience of emotion. It was out of this early belief structure that our contemporary connotation for the heart emerged.

With the rise of the bezel setting, one of the earliest jewelry settings developed, diamonds could become incorporated into heart-shaped motifs, bringing brilliance to an already beautiful form.


Quick Facts

  • The ancient belief that the heart was the central hub of human emotion also gave us the tradition of wearing wedding rings on the fourth finger of our left hand. These early cultures believed that this finger’s central vein ran directly to the heart
  • The 1997 film “Titanic" features a spectacular prop heart-shaped 56-carat blue diamond referred to as the “Heart of the Ocean." Its popularity prompted Asprey & Garrard to create an authentic one – a 171-carat sapphire ensconced in 30 carats worth of platinum-set diamonds, which sold at a Sotheby’s charity auction for $1.4 million in 2001
  • The House of Garrard’s Heart of the Kingdom Ruby Necklace features a monumental 40.63-carat heart-shaped ruby wrapped in diamonds totaling 155 carats, it is currently valued at $14.1 million
