This Sterling heart pendant is made to be bold, brilliant and hook to any necklace! A great versatility for any outfit, accessory or event. Wear it for day on a silver chain, then hook it onto a chunky bright necklace for a whole new look! The curved hook on the back allows for an easy and quick fastening plus, the oxidized silver stands out to create an all occasion look.
A great gift idea!

I do....infinity!

Weddings are a beautiful way to celebrate your lifelong commitment for the one you love. This custom order was made especially for a bride who's wedding is Infinity themed, a perfect symbol of everlasting love and faith.
She requested the Binding Heart Pendant necklace, with infinity chain, be embellished with creamy white Freshwater Pearls with a custom pair of Infinity Dangle earrings featuring a wire wrapped pearl design. I think they turned out wonderfully!
Best Wishes Rebecca!
I hope your day is wonderful!
