Choosing A Sweet Necklace For Your Sweetheart

The most endearing thing you can do as a man is to express your feelings and ensure she knows how you feel. Women love gifts, especially from the heart. Necklaces are a classic way to show your sweetheart how much she means to you.

Instead, we’ll focus on nine of the best, most meaningful necklaces that you can use to show your sweetheart how much you care.

Classic Hearts

The Heart Throb Necklace from LaCkore Couture

Nothing conveys the meaning of romantic affection quite like a heart, so why not offer your special sweetheart a new necklace featuring the symbol of love itself?

A necklace that has a heart-shaped pendant always symbolizes love and friendship, but few people have ever known the historical origins of the design so adored by many.  

In history, you will find the heart to have romantic and religious meanings. Today, most people give hearts as a symbol of affection and love. Nevertheless, heart-shaped lockets became very popular during the 19th century. It represented the bond of love and marriage, and placing a strand of your lover’s hair inside the locket was common. 

As time went on, heart jewelry became known as “sweetheart jewelry,” and the trend continued to rise during both world wars. 

These lockets became keepsakes as soldiers held pieces of their wives and girlfriends’ hair inside. These lockets were extremely special to them, and they began gifting these lockets and sending them home when they were away at war. It became a sign of patriotism and love for the women who wore them.

When you give a necklace like The Heart Throb above, your partner will automatically know what you’re trying to tell them, and they’re sure to appreciate the romantic sentiment behind the meaningful gift. A sweet little heart necklace for your sweetheart is always an excellent go-to. Hearts are also a trendy feature on many necklaces, so you’ll have a lot of stellar pieces to pick from!

Locks and keys have long carried some strong ties to romantic symbolism for people worldwide.

There are plenty of different designs and styles to choose from, and it’s especially fun to select a set that can come together in a unique way.
