A short history…The creation of the heart shape to signify love was first reported at the end of the Middle Ages. It gained popularity in the 15th and 16th centuries and became widely used in jewelry design throughout subsequent centuries.
In the early 20th century, the story of the relationship between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson was told though jewelry and one of the first pieces given to Wallis by Edward was a Cartier heart charm, which opened to reveal a Blaise Pascal line as an inscription: “The Heart Has Its Reasons”. Not only did the King abdicate his throne for his true love, but after they married and became the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, she wrote a memoir with the famous line as the title.
