9CT GOLD CUBIC ZIRCONIA OPEN HEART PENDANT

I'm seeing a lot of larger open pendants around at the moment (those with a cut-out centre that show skin), and here is my take on an evergreen favourite pendant shape, the heart. I personally love a slightly elongated heart shape, and I really like the pointed end of this one, it's just a tad edgy. This dainty looking yet tough pendant is the perfect gift for either yourself or a special someone in your life.

30mm long (including solid bale), 21mm wide. this listing is for the chain only; if a chain is required, I would recommend this one. When purchased together, I offer a 50% discount on the chain.

The heart is the symbolic source of the affections - love, compassion, charity, joy or sorrow - but also of spiritual illumination, truth and intelligence. Many ancient traditions did not make a sharp distinction between feelings and thought. Symbolically, the heart was the body’s sun, illuminating all. As a symbol of what is most essential in a human being, the heart was left in the body of ancient Egyptian mummies.

There are a few key features of Cubic Zirconia that distinguish it from Diamond: 

Hardness. This causes sharp edges to facets in cut crystals to dull and round off in CZ, while with Diamond the edges remain sharp. 

Cut: Cubic Zirconia gemstones may be cut differently from Diamonds. The facet edges can be rounded or "smooth".

Colour: A Cubic Zirconia is often entirely colourless: equivalent to a perfect "D" on Diamond's colour grading scale.

Thermal conductivity: Cubic Zirconia is a thermal insulator whereas Diamond is the most powerful thermal conductor. This is the way most Diamond testers work; by testing thermal conductivity.
