You're admiring a 17th-century rendition of the heart shape, resembling more closely the anatomical human heart than the modern heart emoji we're familiar with today. The indentation at the top, now synonymous with the heart symbol, only emerged during the Victorian era. Set with flat-cut garnets, this locket carries a poignant message from its time: the floral crown adorning its peak says "you're the ruler of my heart".
