Fans of "Sex and the City" can remember in the movie when Sarah Jessica Parker's character Carrie Bradshaw had a gold keychain that read "love." Since the movie came out in 2009, there has been a jewelry trend partially inspired by this. Even though many trends come and go, symbols of love and affection through jewelry has yet to fade. Not only has there been a surge in necklaces and bracelets that simply read "love," but there are a number of different variations that showcase the meaning of love through accessories. With Valentine's Day around the corner, purchasing jewelry such as this is an easy and beautiful way to show how much a person cares for another, and it likely will not go out of style anytime soon.
Heart jewelry like charm bracelets and pendants have seen a surge in popularity as of late.

Individuals can get a heart shaped ring, necklace, earrings or bracelet, and there are countless variations to ensure each piece is unique to the person receiving it. From diamonds to more colorful options, most jewels can be found in a heart shape.
The best part of this type of jewelry is that it looks fantastic in all forms - necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. Plus, ladies do not have to break the bank to get these jewels, as they can opt for costume jewelry such as the Round Pink Crystal Rose Gold-Plated Heart-Shaped Drop Pendant and Chain Necklace for much less.
