Keys, Please

What does the key to your heart look like? Is it made of sterling silver? Perhaps encrusted with some small cubic zirconia stones? Then you’re definitely in luck, because there are so many beautiful key pendants that you’ll love!

Key pendants are riddled with symbolism, though there is no one meaning of the key pendant. In ancient times, having a key was a sign of trust and status, as it meant you had ownership of or access to something worth protecting, such as the gates to a city. Nowadays, wearing key jewelry is often symbolic of having a mystery just waiting to be unlocked. Antique skeleton keys, the type most key jewelry is modeled after, are much more aesthetically pleasing than their modern key counterparts, though the locks that corresponded with skeleton keys were notoriously easy to pick.

Now, key-wearers have their pick from clover keys, heart-shaped keys,  monogrammed keys, and everything in between.

What’s your favorite key pendant style?
