The heart is instantly recognized as a symbol of love, transcending generations and cultures to communicate love. Heart wedding rings and other wedding jewelry that features this emblem of affection leave no question about how you feel.
The heart has represented emotion for centuries. While it’s uncertain exactly when the symbol of the heat was first used to symbolize love, by the Middle Ages it was used to represent the love of Christ and it appeared in Christian art of that time period. Within a few centuries, the heart became associated with Valentine’s Day, solidifying its connection to a message of affection.
Regardless of exactly how the heart came to symbolize love, it’s not surprising that it’s long been connected with emotion. After all, when we’re in love, we feel it in our physical hearts as they flutter, pound and race when the one we love is near.
White gold wedding bands for women that feature hearts are an ideal way to celebrate a love that makes your heart skip a beat. The Eternal Heart Wedding Band Ring in 14K White Gold is wrapped in a ring of gleaming three-dimensional hearts bordered in clean lines of 14K white gold. This sweet wedding band is available in your choice of widths: 6mm or 7mm. In addition to 14K white gold, this design is available in several other solid colors as well as an array of two-tone combinations.
Diamond heart rings are ideal engagement rings as they convey your affection with both a time-honored symbol and the most brilliant and resilient of gems. A heart-shaped diamond is an unmistakable way to communicate your love—not to mention to pop the question in style—and the 3/4 Carat Heart Shaped Diamond Ring is a simply stunning selection. This unique ring provides a creative twist on the classic solitaire engagement ring by replacing the usual round or princess-cut gem with a ¾ carat heart-shaped diamond. This specially-shaped stone is held by a polished band of 14K white gold for a look that’s shining, sweet and sparkling.
If you’d prefer a more elaborately-styled diamond heart ring, consider the 1/2 Carat Diamond Heart Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold.

Numerous hearts are nestled side by side in the band of this gleaming piece, creating a look that makes no mistake about your affection. This lovely engagement ring pairs perfectly with the aforementioned heart wedding band. In addition to this cool 14K white gold style, this design comes in a two-tone variation that places yellow gold hearts against a white gold backdrop; you can also choose from a number of differently-sized diamonds for just the right amount of sparkle.
Whether you choose hearts in a wedding band, an engagement ring or both, these symbols of love are the perfect way to show your affection. Try one of these heart-laden pieces for a lasting reminder of love.
