Christine Alexander Fine Jewellery

Regular price £36.00

Elegant in design, these eye-catching 10mm high stud earrings are perfect for any occasion.

The earrings feature a heart-shaped design nestled by a glistening premium quality Cubic Zirconia collection of baguettes and round stones. 

Don’t get me wrong, I am partial to Diamonds. However, Cubic Zirconia is similar to Diamond in brilliance and clarity but is flawless. It is made in laboratories in large quantities and as such is much more affordable and in many cases, ethical... It is almost as hard as a Diamond at 8.5 on the Mohs Scale compared to a Diamond's 10. It is not a Diamond though it has many Diamond-like qualities. Isn’t it time we stop lusting after the Diamonds we will have "one day" and rock something just as beautiful until that day arrives? Why not?!

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 centre 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 symbolise "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").
