This artisan filigree heart is truly a Turkish delight! The radiant heart at the center and the faceted frame are connected by a web of fine braided silver filigree. This is a hand crafted ring created by a Turkish artisan, and the hallmark confirms that it was made in Turkey.
The traditional heart shape is recognized the world over as a symbol of romantic love and genuine affection. How and when that began – the historical origin – is difficult to pin down. No matter how it started, the romantic heart shaped talisman is certainly a part of the dance between sweethearts today.
This filigree heart ring is currently size 6, and it can be resized easily enough by your local jeweler if needed. The design measures 13 mm from top to bottom and 13 mm parallel to the band. That translates to approximately .5 inches tall and .5 inches wide. This piece is marked .925 to confirm sterling silver purity, and it weighs 2 grams. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
