“I have the key to your heart” or “you are the key to my heart.”
A lovely late Victorian 9ct rose gold heart padlock bracelet. Heart-shaped padlocks or lockets were a way to lock away a loved one’s memory, often suggesting remembrance or infinite love. It has been said that when a gentleman went off to war or to travel afar, he would leave the bracelet locked around her wrist and he would hold the key until he got back. This symbol of love would show others gentlemen that the woman was theirs.
This lovely late Victorian bracelet carries with it such a charming story of love; one that can be remembered and given again today. This would be a lovely gift to your loved one, or best friend.
