The earrings are presented in a lovely fully recycled box and would make the ideal gift for someone special.

The modern indented red heart has been used on playing cards since the late 15th century. The aorta remains visible, as a protrusion at the top centred between the two "chambers" indicated in the symbol, in some depictions of the Sacred Heart well into the 18th century, and is partly still shown today (although mostly obscured by elements such as a crown, flames, rays, or a cross) but the "hearts" suit did not have this element since the 15th century. Since the 19th century, the symbol has often been used on Valentine's Day cards, chocolates, and similar popular culture artefacts as a symbol of romantic love. Heart symbols were used to symbolize "health" or "lives" in video games; influentially so in The Legend of Zelda (1986) and Minecraft (2009).  Since the 1990s, the heart symbol has also been used as an ideogram indicating health outside of the video gaming context, e.g. its use by restaurants to indicate heart-healthy nutrient content claim (e.g. "low in cholesterol").
