The heart motif refers to friendship, devotion and affection, although the most powerful and significant of all hearts in jewelry are the versions that refer to deep, romantic and enduring love. Use of the heart shape to represent love was first reported at the end of the Middle Ages. The symbol gained popularity in the 15th and 16th centuries and became widely used in jewelry design throughout the subsequent centuries.
