The Witch's Heart became known in the 15th century, and was used to ward off evil. It was common practice to attach the hearts to babies' blankets to keep them safe from dark magic. By the 18th century, it was fashionable to give the heart shape with a curved tail in the form of jewelry as love tokens.
This stunning example is set in 15 karat yellow gold with alternating seed pearls and cabochon Persian turquoise stones, a favorite combination of the Victorian Era. Enhanced with a decorative diamond shape at the top, it is a beautiful symbol of bewitching love, sure to keep all evils away!
