Sterling Silver Earrings - Heart with Greek Key Motif and Stone (23mm)
One of the earliest examples from the Middle Ages of the heart is from a French manuscript "Roman de la poire" depicting a man kneeling and offering his heart to a damsel. The heart is the ultimate symbol of love and devotion. It has become so commonplace in society but the symbol has truly endured over the years. Giving someone a heart shows them that you care enough to offer part of yourself to them.
These unique sterling silver heart shaped post earrings feature the traditional Greek Key Motif, also known as the Meander or eternity symbol. There is an oval shaped non-precious stone on each earring post, in your choice of color: clear turquoise, dark blue or turquoise.

In art and architecture, a meander is a decorative border constructed from a continuous line, shaped into a repeated motif. Such a design is also called the Greek Fret or Greek Key design, although these are modern words. The name "meander" recalls the twisting and turning path of the Maeander River. Meanders were among the most important symbols in ancient Greece; they, perhaps, symbolized infinity and unity; many ancient Greek temples incorporated the sign of the meander.
