Upon research, diamond heart pendants have come a long way to become the Valentine heart symbol of love that they are today. Two main theories have come forward claiming to be the originator of the current symbol. One theory traces the origin to a now extinct plant seed pod found in the ruins of 7th century Cyrene. The second theory comes from the Catholic church during the 17th century claiming the shape popular today comes from Saint Margaret Mary Alocoque who saw the symbol surrounded by thorns in a vision.
The symbol then began appearing in jewelry during the Victorian era first as a symbol of condolence typically given after a loved one’s death, and later given as a symbol of love representing one heart laying on top of another.
