Art of the Heart
The iconic symbol of love everlasting in charming, quirky, gorgeous collectibles
As jewelry, fashion, and home décor, the stylized, iconic heart wins us over. We wear it around our necks and on our classy cowgirl boots; it enhances our horse gear and saddle bags; it distinguishes our style from head to toe and lavishes our home with love and sweetness. Here are more than 250 examples of the heart in exquisitely crafted silver and myriad other materials, doing what it does best—capturing our hearts!
