Sweet Heart

 

Although it has been around for many years, the heart design has recently become a popular trend. It carries the general notion of love, a personal expression that is shared outwardly when worn.  This is why it makes a beautiful gift for any level of loving relationship be it romantic, family or friendship.

In religious texts such as the Bible, the heart has historically been ascribed much mystical significance, either as metaphor or as an organ genuinely believed to have spiritual or divine attributes.

Similarly, in Egyptian mythology, the heart was weighed in a balance against the feather of Maàt, symbolizing truth, in the judgment of the dead in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Should the heart be heavier than the feather, the judged person would suffer in hell, since his heart was weighed down with sins. However, if the heart was lighter than the feather, the owner of the heart was admitted to paradise.

Many classical and medieval philosophers and scientists, including Aristotle, considered the heart the seat of thought, reason or emotion, often rejecting the value of the brain.
