Every girl has dreamed about the Tiffany blue box and I’m lucky to have had a few pieces so far including the Return to Tiffany Bead Bracelet and the Infinity Narrow Band Ring. The Tiffany & Co Paloma Picasso Loving Heart Pendant contains several meanings to me and after wearing it for a year, I wanted to share my thoughts and some pretty photos. I think it’s nice to hear the perspective after owning an item for a year so this is my second post in this series after the Sam Edelman Felicia flats I recently wrote about.
Tiffany & Co Paloma Picasso Loving Heart
There are several versions of this pendant available. The most affordable version is an all silver version ($305CAD). For the version I have with a diamond in the middle, it goes for $540 CAD. If you get it in rose gold or gold with a diamond, it is $1,200 CAD. The naming is a bit confusing as there are a few other designs called the Loving Heart Pendant as well. There are several different designs all with the name of Loving Heart on Tiffany’s website. I believe Loving Heart refers to the singular heart design that is trade marked by Paloma Picasso.
Tiffany & Co Paloma Picasso Loving Heart Meaning
For me, this pendant has three elements that have meaning to me: heart, clover and diamond. The heart obviously means love and is in the classic Paloma Picasso style. I also really love that the four hearts form a clover which to me means luck. I wear it around as my lucky charm and also makes me feel grateful to have met my wonderful boyfriend. Lastly in the middle is a diamond which to me means the best. Whether the scarcity is artificially created or not, there is no question that the diamond is the “best” gem out there. My boyfriend says the diamond is there to remind me that I’m the “best” to him.
Now that I’ve had all of you barf over my cheesiness, I have to say that I’m still in love with this design a year later. I wear it probably 75% of the time and only change it up when I’m wearing a choker or other statement necklaces. It’s simple enough to wear every day but I do find it looks elegant as well. I also love to wear it over top of turtlenecks and layered with other longer silver jewelry. The necklace came with a 18″ chain and it hangs right around the first rib.
Tiffany & Co Value
I know many people may think Tiffany & Co is overpriced, but I do find their designs to be really unique. Additionally, they do not skimp out on materials. For example, if you turn this necklace around, you’ll see that the silver goes all the way through and is solid. If you buy your necklace at jewelry stores in the mall, I find that often, it will be a hollow design so they can save on the materials cost. Lastly, Tiffany’s offers free cleaning for silver jewelry now so that is a huge bonus for me that allows me to take care of my jewelry.
It is a huge jump in price for any non-silver pieces at Tiffany’s though. But there is a huge range of silver designs that are unique, dainty, and easily wearable for every day. The silver pieces are priced between $200-$500. It is still expensive but reasonable enough for an amazing gift for a special person in your life!
