Heart gems come in a variety of semi-precious stones that compliment this special shape. Each heart is engraved with "Gratitude" and then painted gold or black to compliment the stone. Heart gems make loving and inspirational gifts for any sweetheart.
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral and in the past, the intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul and stylized depictions of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love.
