The Sacred Heart Necklace

The Sacred Heart Necklace

BLK AND NOIR on 23rd Mar 2015

Here we have a new vintage style Sacred Heart Necklace in Gold. The sacred heart charm is a piece from the 1800s that has been replicated into a 22k gold charm. We chose this charm because it reminded us of Baz Luhrmann's 1996 Romeo + Juliet. This version of Romeo and Juliet is the most beautiful and modern take of R & J  since 1968. The scene where Romeo is wearing a shirt with a sacred heart shirt, a possible symbol how his heart beats for Juliet but is consumed with rage.

In this scene Romeo kills Juliet's cousin in his failed attempts to make piece with Talbot, just after marrying her .The heart is encircled with a crown of thrones with flames shooting from the sides . The sacred heart symbol came to a French nun in the 17th century. It was also believed that the symbol kept a town safe from the plague. 

We chose this necklace because it brings the old with the new.
