Story

Sterling silver does well by this Edwardian era heart-shaped box. It is quite possible that this charming ornament was originally intended as part of the trappings of a chatelaine – a belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a number of chains hanging from it. Much like a Swiss army knife of today, the chains suspended an assortment of useful everyday objects such as scissors, watch or keys.

This puffy little sterling silver heart with its gold wash interior compartment can be employed as a coin purse, pill case or merely as a decorative accessory. Accompanied by its original short link chain, we can easily have our expert jewelers convert to a longer chain to wear the heart as a pendant if you desire.
