This sweet engraved heart hails from Turkey. The heart icon's enduring popularity and versatility make it one of the most recognized symbols worldwide, representing not only romantic love but also compassion, empathy, and kindness. Its history reflects how symbols can evolve and adapt to different cultural and social contexts over time.
Said to have originated in medieval France, the heart symbol became associated with courtly love and romance. It was often featured in medieval art, poetry, and literature as a symbol of love and desire. The heart subsequently found it's way into modern history through Victorian love notes, religious iconography, playing cards, and using symbols to communicate such as short hand and emojis.
