This beautiful and substantial heart key is 3" long and nice and heavy. It is hand moulded from a vintage key from a what was once a hunting and fishing lodge in Quebec's Laurentien's - called Markham's Lodge.
The word “key,” which comes from the Old English word meaning “serving to open or explain,” has always had metaphorical associations, as in a means to uncover ideas or emotions that are hidden or blocked.
When a woman puts an antique key on a chain and wears it around her neck, close to her heart, it could mean any number of things, a mystery just begging to be unlocked. The precedent for jewelry as symbols goes back at least to Queen Victoria, who hardly ever wore jewelry that didn’t have a emotional message of love, hope or mourning.
$85 includes one letter as part of the price.
Chain is extra
